OverDrive: sdy will be standing in for NAVI at upcoming tournaments

As part of the upcoming tournaments, NAVI will play with Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev as a stand-in, insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov wrote on Twitter.

sdy will temporarily replace Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov, who was removed from the main NAVI roster.

Previously, Orudzhev represented MAD Lions, which a month ago put the entire roster on the transfer list and left the professional CS:GO scene. After that, the Ukrainian continued to play with former teammates under the ex-MAD Lions tag.

Earlier, NAVI COO reported that the club continues to search for a permanent fifth player. As one of the candidates for this place, he named Timur "buster" Tulepov, whose signing is complicated by the current contract with Virtus.pro.

The next tournament for NAVI will be BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022. The big LAN event will be held in Portugal from June 15 to 19. Subsequently, Natus Vincere are set to attend IEM Cologne 2022 (July 5-17).

According to OverDrive, at the upcoming events NAVI will play with the following roster:

 Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev
 Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov
 Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy
 Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy
Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev
