IPL 2022: Getting the role of death bowler at RCB, changed my career, says Harshal Patel | Cricket News

BENGALURU: India pacer Harshal Patel said bowling in the death overs for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 changed his career.
Harshal was a part of the Delhi Capitals squad in IPL 2020 but was traded to RCB ahead of the 2021 season.

“I spent six years of my initial IPL career with RCB and then three years with Delhi Capitals, then they traded me. I was very surprised because I believed Delhi will keep me as a backup option,” said Harshal Patel in The RCB Podcast.
