2016 IPL: Rahul, Rasool join RCB from Sunrisers
India batsman KL Rahul and all-rounder Parveez Rasool have joined Royal Challengers Bangalore from Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2016 Indian Premier League.

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 while Parveez Rasool is an asset to any team with his all-round abilities. The duo will join a dream line-up at RCB with India’s Test Captain Virat Kohli leading them.”

RCB owner Vijay Mallya, said: “Given his multiple skills, KL Rahul has a lot to offer RCB in terms of batting and wicketkeeping. It’s a good feeling to get a prominent local Karnataka boy back home and in the RCB fold again.

“Parveez offers us a spinning all-rounder option that we were targeting to complement Chahal and Iqbal. I hope to see him continue his good form in this forthcoming IPL season.”

Rahul was part of the RCB set-up before he was grabbed by Sunrisers during 2014 players’ auction.
