Zaheer, Saurabh Tiwary ruled out of remaining IPL season
The IPL Technical Committee has approved Imran Tahir as a replacement player for Nathan Coulter-Nile of Delhi Daredevils for the remainder of the Pepsi IPL 2014 season. Tahir is eligible to play as from today when Delhi Daredevils take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Ferozeshah Kotla Ground in Delhi.
Zaheer Khan (Mumbai Indians) and Saurabh Tiwary (Delhi Daredevils) have suffered injuries which mean that they will play no further part in the season. In accordance with the IPL Player Regulations, the two franchises may each take a replacement player from the list of players who registered for the 2014 IPL Player Auction but were not taken in the auction.
