Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have signed New Zealand all-rounder Michael Bracewell for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

He has replaced England’s Will Jacks who got ruled out due to a muscle injury he sustained in the recent Bangladesh tour. RCB had secured Jacks’ services for INR 3.2 crore in the auction and have now signed Bracewell for his base price of INR 1 crore. Bracewell had gone unsold in the auction but grabbed eyeballs with a sensational ton in Hyderabad during the ODI series in India.

The all-rounder is currently featuring for New Zealand in the ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka at home and was also picked for the upcoming ODI series against the island nation. With New Zealand Cricket (NZC) agreeing to release the IPL-bound players, Bracewell will also give the SL ODIs a miss now and will soon join the RCB squad ahead of IPL 2023.
