Mike Hesson, who has been announced as the new head coach by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday after Simon Katich stepped down from his role for some personal reasons, is excited to see some new players in the team.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has made certain additions to their team. Some new faces have been included. Three RCB players Adam Zampa, Daniel same, and Finn Allen will not be seen playing in the next half of the IPL 2021. Thus, they had to sign replacements for those players. Royal Challengers included Wanindu Hasaranga of Sri-Lanka in place of Adam Zampa, Dushanth Chameera in place of Daniel Sams, and Singaporean -Australian Tim David in place of Finn Allen.
New head coach Mike Hesson is excited to see the all-rounder Tim David. Mike also feels that Tim David could be a perfect replacement for their middle-order batsmen Ab de Villiers and Australian Glenn Maxwell. He thinks that the Singaporean-Australian all-rounder can give support to the RCB’s batting lineup.
“With Finn Allen leaving, we have decided to strengthen our middle-order possibilities, in terms of options, so Tim David has joined our squad. He could become a direct swap for either [Glenn] Maxwell or AB de Villiers if required, also gives us other options throughout the order,” coach Mike Hesson said via Royal Challengers Bangalore Twitter account.
