Ashmead Nedd, a Guyanese spinner, will join RCB as a net bowler

Ashmead Nedd may have been a name unfamiliar to Indian cricket fans, but he will undoubtedly garner a lot of attention now that he has arrived to the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp as a net bowler for the remainder of the IPL 2022 season. Nedd’s compatriot Sherfane Rutherford was instrumental in getting the left-arm spinner from Guyana into the RCB team as a net bowler, and this will be a wonderful opportunity for the kid to gain recognition.

Nedd was a member of the West Indies’ U19 World Cup team in 2018 and has since played seven games in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), taking three wickets at an outstanding economy rate of 5.64. The 21-year-old made his List A debut in 2019 and has 17 wickets at an economy rate of 3.50 in 12 appearances. Several bowlers who previously made an IPL team as net bowlers impressed and were later included in the squad.

Nedd stated that working with RCB, which features professionals such as Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell, will undoubtedly aid his development as a spinner, and he wished to inquire about the routines they would face as a professional. He stated that he is eager to understand how he can improve his skills as a child in order to compete at the greatest levels. Nedd is scheduled to go for India on Tuesday (12th April).

RCB has began their IPL 2022 campaign strongly, winning three of their first four games, and appears to be a strong contender to make the playoffs this season. They are now third in the points standings and will take on the Chennai Super Kings on April 12th at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.
