IPL 2022 Mega Auction: 3 Players Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Can Retain. Perhaps, Royal Challengers Bangalore had the best chance to win an IPL title this year. They had a great balance to their playing eleven and it was evident in their performances, especially in the India leg of the tournament.
Glenn Maxwell and Harshal Patel were their standout performances. The other players two chipped in with crucial performances and, as a result, RCB made it to the playoffs for the second consecutive occasion.
However, once again, they lost an Eliminator clash, this time against Kolkata Knight Riders. Prior to the start of the second leg of IPL 2021, Virat Kohli had stated that the IPL 2021 would be his last as captain of RCB, however, he would continue playing for the team as a specialist batsman.
Royal Challengers Bangalore would be disappointed to let go the majority of their players ahead of the mega auction after finally being found to have a great balance. Nevertheless, we look at 3 players that RCB could retain in the IPL 2022 mega auction

Virat Kohli will probably be the first player on RCB’s retention list ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. He won’t be leading the franchise from next year and but is likely to continue to be an integral part of the team.
Virat Kohli looked a pale shadow of himself in IPL 2021. He hasn’t been in the best of form over the last couple of years. Hopefully, giving up captain might ease the pressure off him and he gets back into his prime form.
