Australian speedster Ben Hilfenhaus has been signed by Delhi Daredevils as a replacement for South Africa's Jean-Paul Duminy for the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League.

Hilfenhaus, who has represented Australia in 27 Tests, 25 one-day Internationals (ODIs) and 7 T20Is, has played for two IPL franchises in past editions - Chennai Super Kings (2012) and Mumbai Indians (2014).

Royal Challengers Bangalore have also replaced their star player KL Rahul, who pulled out of the IPL 2017 due to a shoulder injury, with Kerala wicket-keeper batsman Vishnu Vinod.

Rahul injured his shoulder during the recently concluded Test series against Australia.

The 23-year-old Vinod has had a good run in the limited-overs formats in domestic cricket, hitting a total of 16 sixes in T20 competitions.

Rising Pune Supergiant have replaced Ravichandran Ashwin, who pulled out of the tournament due to sports hernia, with Washington Sundar.

Tamil Nadu cricketer Sundar has represented India at the under-19 level.
