IPL 2024: Michael Bracewell to Replace Mujeeb Ur Rahman in KKR

Michael Bracewell could replace Mujeeb Ur Rahman for KKR

Kolkata Knight Riders are exploring the possibility of securing a replacement should Mujeeb ur Rahman be unavailable for IPL 2024. While KKR acquired Mujeeb at his base price of Rs. 2 crore in the IPL 2024 auction, the Afghan player is anticipated to sit out the upcoming season.

Mujeeb’s absence stems from the Afghanistan Cricket Board’s decision to penalize him for refusing to sign a central contract. Presently, ACB has withdrawn Mujeeb’s NOCs for participation in franchise leagues, a restriction set to extend for the next two years starting from January 2024.

Facing the prospect of a potential ban and uncertainties surrounding Mujeeb’s future, KKR must consider alternatives for their upcoming plans.

Michael Bracewell to Replace Mujeeb Ur Rahman in IPL 2024

Having featured in a few matches for RCB last season before being released, Michael Bracewell emerges as a potential option for KKR, particularly if Mujeeb is unavailable. The versatile Kiwi spinner not only offers proficiency with the ball but also contributes as a solid batter in the lower-middle order. KKR could leverage the 32-year-old’s well-rounded skills if they consider bringing him on board.
