Indian Premier League franchise Punjab Kings has signed South Africa batter Aiden Markram for the remainder of the season.
The all-rounder will replace Dawid Malan. The England batter has decided to withdraw from the tournament, taking the time off to be with the family ahead of the World Cup T20 followed by The Ashes.
Markram is in good form at the moment and he was one of the highest scorers in the recently concluded Sri Lanka ODI series.
The 26-year-old has played 50+ T20 matches and has close to 1410 runs with a strike rate close to 129 while averaging 30.5.
