NEW DELHi: All-rounder Parveez Rasool has joined Royal Challengers Bangalore from Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2016 Indian Premier League.
IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla, said: “The Royal Challengers Bangalore have made strong moves ahead of the season. Parveez Rasool is an asset to any team with his all-round abilities while KL Rahul is one of the talented young batsmen in the Indian circuit.”
“The duo will join a dream line-up at RCB with India’s Test Captain Virat Kohli leading them,” he added.
RCB owner Vijay Mallya, said: “Given his multiple skills, KL Rahul has a lot to offer RCB in terms of batting and wicket keeping.
It’s a good feeling to get a prominent local Karnataka boy back home and in the RCB fold again.
“Parveez offers us a spinning all rounder option that we were targeting to compliment Chahal and Iqbal. I hope to see him continue his good form in this forthcoming IPL season,” he added.
The IPL will be played from April 9 to May 29.
