New Delhi, Mar 24: New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson will replace fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile in the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad, the IPL Technical Committee confirmed on Saturday (March 24).
Coulter-Nile, who played a key role in Kolkata Knight Riders' season last year with 15 wickets from eight games, has been ruled out owing to an injury and has been prescribed 'ample rest'
In accordance with the Player Regulations, the Royal Challengers Bangalore were allowed to choose a replacement from the Registered and Available Player Pool (RAPP), and the Bangalore-based franchise subsequently picked Anderson for his base price of INR 2 Crore.
"Replacing him in the squad is the explosive Kiwi all-rounder Corey Anderson. Corey plays a bold game and has incredible potential. We all welcome him to the RCB squad," Vettori added.
