 IPL wrote in the press release, “Australian fast bowler Jason Behrendorff has been traded from Royal Challengers Bangalore to Mumbai Indians for the upcoming IPL season 2023.”  He was bought by RCB in the IPL auction 2022 for his base price of Rs 75 lakhs.

 Mumbai Indians bought Jason in 2018.  But he was out due to injury.  Mitchell McClenaghan came in as his replacement.  In 2019, Jason was only available for the first half.  Significantly, before IPL 2020, the franchise had released him.  However, after a very poor performance by the team in IPL 2022, the team needed a change in the fast bowling unit.  There is doubt about the availability of Joffra Archer in the upcoming season.  He has been battling injury for almost two years.  Mumbai bought him in the IPL auction for Rs 8 crore.

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders are set to release Aaron Finch, Ajinkya Rahane, Mohammad Nabi, Ramesh Kumar, Shivam Mavi and Chamika Karunaratne.
