Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced two new player additions to their Dota 2 roster, in a possible bid to recapture last year’s success.
The revamped line-up adds Russian player Nikita “Daxak” Kuzmin and Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos from Brazil to the team, while also removing Malthe “Biver” Winther from the roster and switching Saahil “Universe” Arora from offlan
Lelis mostly recently played for beastcoast at DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major, standing-in for Adrian “Wisper” Cespedes Dobles.

Daxak previously played for Gambit Esports before signing with Winstrike Team. He was made inactive by Winstrike in December last year.
Ninjas in Pyjamas haven’t had the best start to the current season, recently placing in the bottom half at the WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020.
They’ll be looking to turnaround their fortunes with this new roster, which you can check out below:
- Nikita “Daxak” Kuzmin
- Jason “TANNER” Weedon
- Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos
- Saahil “Universe” Arora
- Peter “ppd” Dager
Ninjas in Pyjamas are next set to compete at the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Europe Closed Qualifier 9th February and WePlay! Dota 2 Tug Of War: Mad Moon on 19-23rd February 2020.
