RCB owner Vijay Mallya, said: "Given his multiple skills, KL Rahul has a lot to offer RCB in terms of batting and wicketkeeping. It’s a good feeling to get a prominent local Karnataka boy back home and in the RCB fold again.

"Parveez offers us a spinning all rounder option that we were targeting to compliment Yuzvendra Chahal and Iqbal Abdullah. I hope to see
him continue his good form in this forthcoming IPL season," he

The IPL will be played from April 9 to May 29.
