IPL 2024: RR & GT announces Replacements for Minz & Zampa

IPL 2024: RR & GT announces Replacements for Minz & Zampa

Before the beginning of IPL 2024, Rajasthan Royals & Gujarat Titans announced replacements for their injured players Adam Zampa & Robin Minz. Initially, Titans turned heads around by acquiring the services of tribal talent Robin Minz for a whopping 3.6 crores. But destiny had different plans as Minz met an unexpected accident & sustained an injury.

But Gujarat Titans didn’t lose hope on Minz’s absence & secured a like-for-like replacement for the tribal talent by acquiring the services of Karnataka’s versatile wicketkeeper-batter, BR Sharath. With a commendable track record in domestic Cricket, Sharath brings a plethora of experience featuring in 28 T20s, 20 first-class matches & 43 List-A matches. His inclusion injects depth into the Titans’ squad, bolstering their batting arsenal.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Riyals faced a major blow as their star bowler Adam Zampa withdrew from the tournament citing personal reasons.  In a strategic move, they swiftly recruited Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy hero, Tanush Kotian, to fill the void. Kotian’s stellar performances in domestic cricket are not hidden from anyone. It’s his heroics that helped Mumbai to win their 42nd Ranji Trophy. His proficiency in both batting & bowling adds versatility to RR’s roster & makes him a valuable inclusion for the league.

He has scalped 29 wickets with five half-centuries & one century. Kotian has picked up 24 wickets from 23 matches at an average of 20.04 in his T20 career. He has an economy rate of just 6.07. The 25-year-old will be high on confidence & will be rearing to prove his prowess in IPL 2024.

Speaking about the recruitment, RR’s Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara, “Tanush caught our attention as a player we’ve closely monitored for the past year, recognizing his versatility and promising talent,” the spokesperson remarked. “His consistent performances and an outstanding Ranji Trophy season reinforced our belief in his abilities. We anticipate his all-round skills will enhance the team’s dynamics, and we’re excited to see him make valuable contributions to the franchise this season.”

Coming to Rajasthan Royals & Gujarat Titans both the teams will kickstart their campaigns with a doubleheader match on Sunday with RR taking on LSG in the first doubleheader & GT taking on MI in the second doubleheader.
