All-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the UAE leg of IPL 2021 because of a finger injury, Royal Challengers Bangalore announced on Monday.

Bengal medium-pacer Akash Deep has been named as replacement.

Washington had hurt his finger during practice in the lead-up to the ongoing five-Test series in England and subsequently returned home.

RCB will play Kolkata Knight Riders on September 20 in Abu Dhabi.
