In cricketing news that is making waves across the country, Royal Challengers Bangalore have announced the trading of left-arm seamer Jason Behrendorff to the defending champions of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians.

The two teams have now completed the trade for the 2023 season as RCB will receive a player from Mumbai Indians in return. This is the first major transfer from the Bangalore-based side since the appointment of Mike Hesson as their head coach last month.

During the 2021 IPL season, the Australian cricketer showcased his prowess with the ball, picking up 11 wickets in seven matches. He also recorded the best bowling figures of the season with 4/21 against the Delhi Capitals.

The 30-year-old was named in IPL 2020; however, he was forced to miss the entire season with a back injury. Now fully-fit again in time for IPL 2023, Behrendorff will represent Mumbai Indians, who have become the strongest team in the league over the past few seasons.

The left-arm pace bowler’s presence will add further depth to Mumbai Indians’ already impressive fast-bowling unit that already boasts of the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, and Kieron Pollard.

It is likely that RCB will be looking to bolster their batting lineup during the IPL trading window. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen as to who they receive from Mumbai Indians in return.
