Kings XI Punjab sign Michael Neser

A round-up of the IPL news from April 30, 2013

Michael Neser, the Queensland fast bowler, has replaced the injured Ryan Harris in the Kings XI Punjab squad. Harris had returned to Australia last week after being diagnosed with an Achilles tendon injury.

Neser, born in South Africa, moved to Australia at the age of 10. He made his first-class debut for Queensland in 2010. Even though he hasn¹t been a regular in the Queensland side, he has had an impressive stint with Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League.
