Ashmead Nedd, the Guyanese spinner, is set to join the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as a net bowler for the ongoing IPL 2022 tournament. It has been learned that Nedd’s compatriot Sherfane Rutherford had played a big part in bringing the left-arm spinner from Guyana into the RCB squad as a net bowler, and this will be a huge chance for the youth to get noticed.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are sitting pretty at the third spot in the Indian Premier League 2022 points table with 3 wins in 4 matches. They will be facing off against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their fifth match of the IPL 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium on April 12, 2022, which will be the 22nd match of the tournament.

The 21-year-old made his List A debut in 2019 and has taken 17 wickets in 12 games at an economy rate of 3.50.
