The cash-rich Indian Premier League-10 has been the season of injured. Some good players are out of the league due to injury and now Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Sarfaraz Khan joined the list.
RCB has roped in Harpreet Singh in place of injured Sarfaraz Khan for the rest of the season.
Sarfaraz who hasn’t played a single match in this edition so far, was carried off the field on a stretcher, and was ruled out of the full season just before the start of the new campaign.
Harpreet couldn't be a part of the IPL 2017 auction and the reason couldn't have been more bizarre.
Earlier, news agencies goofed up and mistook him for Harmeet Singh, a player who was detained and later released on bail for driving his car on Andheri Railway station platform on February 20, the day of IPL auction.
As a result, Harpreet, the Madhya Pradesh batsman, remained unsold even though he was one of the most consistent cricketers in domestic circles.
