“His replacement, Corbin Bosch, is a 27-year-old all-rounder from South Africa who was part of the Rajasthan Royals team as a net bowler. He has played 30 T20Is, scored 151 runs and took 18 wickets. He will join RR at a cost of Rs 20 lakhs,” IPL said in a press release on Saturday.
Bosch represented South Africa at the 2014 Under-19 Cricket World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and made his first-class debut for the Titans in the 2017–18 Sunfoil Series.
Rajasthan Royals will take on Lucknow Super Giants at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday and will end their preliminary league engagements in IPL 2022 with a match against Chennai Super Kings on May 20.
RR suffered an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals in their previous outing. “Very disappointing night. We were a few runs short and a few wickets short. When we were batting it was a two-pace wicket, we thought we were 15 runs short. A few catches were said by RR captain Sanju Samson after the match. We had bad luck falling in front and hitting one of the stumps, but the bail was not coming.
They are currently third in the points table on net run rate with 14 points ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore. RR started their campaign with two consecutive wins and have had a decent season so far with seven wins and five losses in 12 matches.
After beating them by three runs last month at the Wankhede Stadium, RR will be facing LSG for the second time.
