Salvi replaces Aaron in Daredevils squad for CLT20

September 21, 2012 14:05 IST

Medium pacer Aavishkar Salvi has replaced an ill Varun Aaron in the Delhi Daredevils squad for the upcoming Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament to be held in South Africa from October 9-28.

The CT20 technical committee today confirmed the change to the Delhi Daredevils squad after the 22-year-old Aaron was ruled out of the event due to tonsillitis for which he has been advised to undergo a tonsillectomy, a surgical procedure, a statemet from the organisers said.

Salvi, 30, is a right-arm medium pacer who played four ODIs for India in 2003. He has taken seven wickets in as man IPL games for the Delhi Daredevils.

The Daredevils will open its CLT20 campaign on the opening day of the group stage on October 13 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Centurion.
