This is considered to be a big setback for RCB because the Symes will no longer be able to play in the first several matches. Daniel Sams has played four T20 matches for Australia. At the same time, three IPL matches have been played for Delhi Capitals. This year, Delhi Capitals released Symes, after which RCB bought them in the auction.
Let us know that the IPL is starting from April 9. The first match will be played between Mumbai and Bangalore (MI Vs RCB). The first match will start at 7.30 pm. While Rohit Sharma will take charge of the team from Mumbai, Virat Kohli will be responsible for RCB.
