RCB Names Kedar Jadhav as David Willey’s Replacement

RCB signed Kedar Jadhav as a replacement for David Willey for the remainder of the IPL 2024 season. Willey was ruled out due to a fractured toe and adductor strain, the franchise confirmed in its statement. He played four matches for RCB this season and scalped three wickets.
