Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have signed English fast-bowler George Garton as a replacement for Australian bowler Kane Richardson for the remainder of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). Richardson joins the long list of overseas cricketers to have pulled out of this edition of the IPL due to various reasons.
The left-arm quick has featured in 38 T20s and has taken 44 wickets with a bowling average of 20.06. As a batsman, Garton has a batting average of 20.77 in the T20s, with a strike rate of 124.66.
This is the fourth replacement of RCB after Wanidu Hasaranga replaces Adam Zampa, Dushmantha Chameera replaces Daniel Sams and Tim David replaces Finn Allen.
Royal Challengers Bangalore resume Season 14 of the IPL on September 20 as they square off against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. (ANI)
