By Lawrence Trusida

CHEVRONS fast bowler Blessing Muzarabani is on his way to the Indian Premier League (IPL) after being signed by new franchise Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) ahead of the 2022 season which starts this weekend.

The lanky fast bowler will be replacing England pacer Mark Wood who suffered an elbow injury.

Muzarabani becomes the fourth Zimbabwean to feature in the World’s most lucrative cricket league the IPL.

Brendan Taylor was the last Zimbabwean to feature in the IPL eight (8) years ago when he turned out for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014.

Ray Price who turned out for Mumbai Indians and Tatenda Taibu for Kolkata Knight Riders are the other players from Zimbabwe who have featured in the IPL before.

LSG open their season with a date against fellow newcomers Gujarat Titans on 28th of March at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
