forced to find replacements for the second half of ipl 2021 the royal challengers bangalore have landed a jackpot in an all-rounder who has been turning heads in international cricket in the last few months his name is vanindu hasaranga hey guys you’re watching mintra 12th man tv earlier this year when sri lanka told the west indies when indo hasaranga ended the t20i series as the highest wicket taker fanning speculations that ipl teams might be interested in this street smart cricketer who is also a handy aggressive batsman but then the ipl started and the excitement faded away however only for months as not long after that hasaranga once again caught the eye of the cricketing world thanks to a stupendous bowling performance against the touring indian side as he ended the series as the highest wicket taker including a performance which had the best figures by ebola against an indian side now that’s an achievement to be proud of naturally it led to murmurs once again only this time around it was louder and it led to reports claiming that rcb were interested in the sri lankan cricketer and a few months down the line the rumors turned out to be true as rcb picked up one indo hasaranga mike hassan did clarify that hasaranga’s inclusion was not due to a recency bias and has been on the team’s radar for quite some time and that made sense because hasaranga has been doing all that he could in his powers to grab people’s attention for the last few years he bagged a hat-trick on odi debut in 2017 against zimbabwe as a 19 year old becoming the youngest player to do so and just a couple of years later a t20 debut against new zealand and in 2020 the big breakthrough into the sri lankan test team when we talk about hasaranga it’s his bowling which is often full of tricks that is the talking point but he can be quite lethal with the bat as well in fact he has scored plenty of runs in the domestic circuit where he ended up banking the most promising player award in the 2016-17 season and in 2018 he was the highest run getter for the colombo cricket club in the premier league tournament in his introductory note to the fans of rcb hasaranga promised a fun ride this season and given all the tricks up his sleeves the conditions in the uae certainly make him one of the players to watch out for not just for rcb but in the entire league let’s hope the fun ride leads to greater things in ipl 2021
