RCB sign Parameswaran to replace Aravind

Bangalore: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have signed left-handed paceman Prashanth Parameswaran from Kerala as a replacement for injured S Aravind.

Parameswaran will join the squad at the earliest, the RCB said in a statement.

"We are happy with the induction of Parameswaran in our squad. He will boost our bowling resources during the most critical phase of the ongoing tournament," RCB owner Sidhartha Mallya in a statement.

The pacer was a part of the Kochi Tuskers Kerala outfit in the 2011 season of the IPL.
