Bangalore: Royal Challengers Bangalore have signed left-handed paceman Prashanth Parameswaran from Kerala as a replacement for the injured S Aravind in the ongoing Indian Premier League. Parameswaran will join the squad at the earliest, the RCB said in a statement on Saturday.
"We are happy with the induction of Parameswaran in our squad. He will boost our bowling resources during the most critical phase of the ongoing tournament," said RCB owner Sidhartha Mallya.
The 26-year-old pacer was a part of the Kochi Tuskers Kerala outfit in the 2011 season of the IPL, and scalped the wicket of Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag in the very first over of his IPL debut match in 2011, and winning the Man-of-the-Match award. He made his first-class debut for Kerala aged 24, and won an IPL contract after a strong showing in the 2010-11 Vijay Hazare Trophy.
