ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE have roped in Madhya Pradesh batsman Harpreet Singh Bhatia as a replacement for injured Sarfaraz Khan, for the remainder of IPL 10.
Harpreet, who has represented India U-19 in the past, has previously also played for Sahara Pune Warriors in IPL. The southpaw had a consistent run in the domestic limited-overs competitions for Madhya Pradesh and finished as the leading run getter of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Inter-Zonal tournament for Central Zone in 2016-17. His addition to the squad is expected to allow some room for the team management with respect to selection.
