RCB swaps Shahbaz Ahmed for SRH’s Mayank Dagar in pre-IPL 2024 trade



The franchises have until November 26th to submit their list of retained and released players, allowing for player trades up until the deadline. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) have made a trade agreement, swapping all-rounders Shahbaz Ahmed and Mayank Dagar. Shahbaz Ahmed was a valuable asset for RCB but experienced a decline in performance in the 2023 season. On the other hand, Dagar, who was acquired by SRH for a substantial sum, had limited appearances in the 2023 season but managed to secure one wicket with an impressive economy rate of 7.55.

Both RCB and SRH are facing critical decisions with the retention deadline and mini-auction approaching. RCB is seeking to free up funds by potentially parting ways with Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga, while SRH is contemplating the future of their high-profile signing, Harry Brook. Releasing these players could potentially provide a substantial financial boost to the franchises for the upcoming 2024 mini-auction.
