In the midst of the Indian Premier League (IPL) injury crisis, a number of franchises have moved to add fresh legs to their squads with Ben Hilfenhaus replacing JP Duminy in the Delhi Daredevils squad.
Veteran Australian seamer Hilfenhaus joins up with the Daredevils while the Royal Challengers Bangalore have replaced Lokesh Rahul (shoulder) with Kerala wicketkeeper-batsman Vishnu Vinod.
Ben Hilfenhaus has represented Australia in 27 Tests, 25 ODIs and 7 T20 Internationals. He has played for two IPL franchises in previous seasons.
23-year-old Vinod has had a good run in the limited-overs formats in domestic cricket for Kerala, hitting a total of 16 sixes in T20 competitions.
Earlier, Tamil Nadu batsman Washington Sundar was signed by Rising Pune Supergiants as a replacement for Indian Test all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin. Sundar represented India at Under-19s level and made his senior debut for Tamil Nadu last season.
