IPL 2021 Auction: 3 players that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will target
English cricketer Jason Roy is famous for his big hitting ability in the limited-overs format. The opening batsman has four T20 centuries, and he recently impressed in the BBL 2020/21.
The right-handed opening batsman has played 8 IPL matches, where he has scored 179 runs, including one half-century, which was 91 not out. But due to his inactivity in the delayed IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals recently released this English opener.
RCB needs an experienced opening batsman and Jason Roy can perfectly fit in this team’s nature. If Roy makes himself available for the IPL 2021, RCB can target him to buy in the IPL 2021 auction.
