Now with his exclusion from the franchise RCB management has gone with a replacement for him and they have chosen Akash Deep from Bengal to fill his place.
He is a perfect all rounder player for the Bengal Team and has been good in the domestic tournament as well. He has taken 35 wickets in the FC Matches and carries a strike rate of 110+ in the shortest format.
