New Delhi: The authorities of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) announced on Monday, that Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa has replaced Kane Richardson from the team for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
The team made the announcement on Twitter and wrote, “We’re thrilled to welcome Adam Zampa in RCB colours. He replaces Kane Richardson. Let’s #PlayBold Adam Zampa.”

“The RCB family is excited for Kane and his wife who are expecting the birth of their first child and respect his decision to pull out of the tournament,” the franchise added.
Mike Hesson, the team director said that they will miss Kane’s skills in the team, but they appreciate his decision, as he wants to be present during the birth of his first child.
Hesson stated, “We are disappointed to not have Kane’s skills with us this IPL as he certainly on top of his game. However once we found out Kane and Nyki’s baby was due during the IPL, it’s an exciting time and we were fully supportive of Kane wanting to be at the birth of their first child,” was quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo.
“When looking at our squad for UAE conditions we felt it was an opportunity to bring in another quality leg spinner in Adam Zampa to provide cover for Chahal and also give us extra options if conditions suit spin as expected during the tournament,” Hesson added
The inclusion of Zampa has strengthened the team’s spin attack which already has Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Moeen Ali and Shahbaz Ahmed.
Zampa has a massive record against RCB captain Virat Kohli. He even dismissed the team seven times in the limited-overs which is highest for any bowler.
The Indian Premier League is scheduled to be starting from September 19 and the finals will be played on November 10.
