Harpreet Singh Bhatia, the Madhya Pradesh batsman, has been signed by the Royal Challengers Bangalore as a replacement for injured Sarfaraz Khan for the remainder of the ongoing tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017.
19-year-old Sarfaraz sustained a leg injury during an inter-squad practice game at the Chinnaswamy Stadium ahead of the season and has since not featured for last year's finalists in any of the six games so far.
Left-handed batsman Harpreet has represented India under-19s in the past. He had also enjoyed a consistent run in the domestic limited-overs competitions for Madhya Pradesh and finished as the leading run-scorer of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Inter-Zonal tournament for Central Zone in 2016-17.
