The second phase of the IPL will start in the UAE from September 9. Chopra called for an unprecedented Hasaranga election for the RCB. The second phase of the UAE starts in the UAE from September 19. In the IPL 2021, the RCB ranks third on the list with 10 points.
In his new video uploaded on YouTube, Akash said, “There is no Adam Jumpa, so he (RCB) brought the band.” Interestingly, there were doubts about their availability beforehand and therefore they were not selected for auction. But everybody believed that whenever they played T20 cricket, they had to be selected because they performed well, whether for the country or not. He did a great job in Sri Lanka. He contributed to whatever game he played. I think there is a wonderful addition. If you wish, you can feed Hasaranga along with Chahal. You can go with two wrist spinners.

Hasaranga is the second bowler in T20 format. He played brilliantly in the recent T20 series against Sri Lanka. He took 4 wickets and 7 wickets in the third T20. He was selected as a tournament player. Interestingly, the Sri Lankan all-rounder in the RCB squad is named after Hasaranga, Dushmant Chamira and Tim David. If Hasaranga were to replace Adam Zampa, Tim David would be replaced by Finn Allen. At the same time, Dushmant Chamira replaces Daniel Sam.
