Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals have announced replacements for Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Prasidh Krishna in IPL 2024. South African seamer Keshav Maharaj has joined in for Prasidh Krishna, while Allah Ghazanfar has come in for Mujeeb Ur Rahman. The development emerged on March 28th, Monday.

Ghazanfar, an off-spinner, like Mujeeb Ur Rahman, has represented Afghanistan in 2 ODIs. However, the youngster has plied his trade in only 3 T20s and 6 List A matches, managing 5 and 4 scalps, respectively. The finger spinner has joined the two-time champions' squad for INR 20 lakh.

Meanwhile, Krishna recently underwent a surgery for his left proximal quadriceps, ruling him out of the entire tournament. Maharaj, the veteran left-arm spinner from South Africa, has been roped in as the right-arm speedster's replacement. He has 130 scalps in 159 T20s and is also capable of chipping in with some handy runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals make winning starts to their respective campaigns:

Meanwhile, both Knight Riders and Royals have had winning start to their respective campaigns. Kolkata, led by Shreyas Iyer, overcame the SunRisers Hyderabad in a high-scoring contest at the Eden Gardens. Rajasthan beat the Lucknow Super Giants at the Sawai ManSingh Stadium convincingly to open their campaign.

The Royals are currently battling the Delhi Capitals, who have put the opposition into batting first after Rishabh Pant won the toss in his 100th match for the franchise.
