Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Harshal Patel has left the IPL bio-bubble following the death of a family member.
PTI has learnt that Harshal exited the bubble after getting to know about the tragedy in the family right after the game against Mumbai Indians.
Harshal has been the star performer for RCB over the past couple of seasons and took two wickets on Saturday night in the team's seven wicket win over MI.

The 31-year-old has played eight T20Is after making his debut last year.
