New Delhi, March 18 (IANS) Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have signed New Zealand's Michael Bracewell as a replacement for England batter Will Jacks for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.

His replacement, Bracewell, has played 16 T20Is, scored 113 runs and picked up 21 wickets for New Zealand.

The 32-year old Bracewell, who has never previously played in the IPL, will join RCB at his base price of INR 1 Crore.

Royal Challengers play their first game of the IPL 2023 against Mumbai Indians on April 2. It will be their first fixture at their home ground, Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium, since May 2019.
