Supergiants bring in Khawaja to bolster batting line-up

New Delhi : Rising Pune Supergiants have roped in Australian batsman Usman Khwaja in an attempt to bolster their beleaguered batting line-up.

Supergiants suffered back-to-back setbacks as star batsmen Kevin Pietersen and Faf du Plessis were ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League season with their respective injuries.

Khawaja was the leading run-getter for Australia in the World T20 with 143 runs in four matches.

Prior to the T20 format’s pinnacle event, he had showcased his batting prowess by accumulating a staggering 345 runs in only four matches while playing for Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League.

Supergiants are currently sixth in the points table with two wins out of six games they had played. (ANI)
