“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work” – A quote that perhaps describes the lanky left-arm seamer Sreenath Aravind the best. The 28-year old Bengaluru boy created ripples in the Indian cricketing circuit with his wicket taking abilities in the IPL of 2011. Filling in for injured Dirk Nannes, Aravind impressed all by scalping 21 wickets from just 13 matches, playing a vital role in taking the team up to the final of the tournament that season. Much to his surprise, his skills earned him a place in the national team against England later in 2011.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have signed Prasanth Parameswaran, the left-handed paceman from Kerala, as a replacement for the injured S. Aravind.
