IPL 2021: Shams Mulani Joins DC As Axar Patel's Replacement For Brief Period
"Hence, Mulani will only be a part of the Delhi Capitals side until Axar recovers and is allowed to join the team," the statement added. This will be 24-year-old Mulani's first stint in IPL. He has featured in 10 first-class, 30 domestic one-dayers, and 25 T20s for his state team Mumbai so far.
Delhi Capitals have also signed Anirudha Joshi as a replacement for the injured Shreyas Iyer for the remainder of the tournament. Iyer was ruled out of the tournament after sustaining an injury during the recent India-England One-Day International series.
Joshi, a middle-order batsman, and an off-spinner join his third IPL team, having been a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals in the past. He represents Karnataka in domestic cricket and has featured in 17 domestic one-dayers and 22 T20 matches so far.
