Batsman KL Rahul and all-rounder Parvez 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 Parvez 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,” he added.

RCB 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.

“Parvez offers us a spinning all rounder option that we were targeting to compliment Chahal and Iqbal. I hope to see him continue his good form in this forthcoming IPL season,” he added.

The IPL will be played from April 9 to May 29.
