Royal Challengers Bangalore have signed India wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul from Sunrisers Hyderabad for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
Rahul, who was signed by Hyderabad for Rs 1 Crore in the 2014 IPL auction, has moved to the Royal Challengers after spending two season with the Deccan-based team.
This will be Rahul’s second stint with the Royal Challengers, having already spent 2013 season with the Bangalore-based team.
RCB Team Owner, Vijay Mallya, said: “Given his multiple skills, KL Rahul has a lot to offer RCB in terms of batting and wicket keeping. It’s a good feeling to get a prominent local Karnataka boy back home and in the RCB fold again.”
IPL Chairman, Rajeev Shukla, said: “The Royal Challengers Bangalore have made strong moves ahead of the season. KL Rahul is one of the talented young batsmen in the Indian circuit”
