Royal Challengers Bangalore sign Harpreet Singh Bhatia to replace injured Sarfaraz Khan.
Harpreet Singh Bhatia, the Madhya Pradesh batsman, has been signed by the Royal Challengers Bangalore as a replacement for injured Sarfaraz Khan for the remainder of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017.
A left-handed batsman, Harpreet has represented India under-19s in the past. He had a consistent run in the domestic limited-overs competitions for Madhya Pradesh and finished as the leading run-scorer of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Inter-Zonal tournament for Central Zone in 2016-17. Harpreet has played in the IPL earlier for the Kolkata Knight Riders and Sahara Pune Warriors.
Harpreet went unsold in February’s IPL auction. In a bizarre case of mistaken identity during the auction resulted in his going unsold. Mistaken for Harmeet Singh, who was arrested for driving a car into the Andheri railway station; the in-form Harpreet was snubbed.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s next VIVO IPL 2017 encounter is against the Kolkata Knight Riders on April 23 at Kolkata.
