RCB and SRH Swap Shahbaz Ahmed for Mayank Dagar in Anticipation of IPL 2024 Auction



The franchises must send their list of retained and released players by Sunday, November 26th. Consequently, teams can engage in player trades up until the deadline. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) have agreed to trade all-rounders Shahbaz Ahmed and Mayank Dagar, according to Cricbuzz. Shahbaz Ahmed, valued for his all-round abilities, had a standout season in 2022 but struggled in 2023. On the other hand, Mayank Dagar, known for his bowling and batting skills, joined SRH in 2018 and had limited appearances in the 2023 season. With the retention and mini-auction approaching, both RCB and SRH are considering releasing underperforming players to enhance their financial resources. RCB is looking to potentially part ways with Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga, while SRH is contemplating releasing high-profile signing Harry Brook.
