Royal Challengers Bangalore head into the IPL 2022 auction with 57 crores in the bank. The 2016 IPL finalists retained Virat Kohli (INR 15 crore), Glenn Maxwell (INR 11 crore), Mohammed Siraj (INR 7 crore) in the retention window. They are on the lookout for a captain in the IPL 2022 mega auction.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have bought the best of T20 cricketers in the past. Chris Gayle, AB De Villiers have been a part of the franchise and have played a key role in their success. The retirement of AB De Villiers has posed problems for the franchise in terms of finding a potential skipper. Virat Kohli had stepped down as the skipper of the franchise after IPL 2021 and promised to continue playing as a player.
Meanwhile, in this article, we will take a look at the probable players, the franchise might look to buy in the upcoming mega auction.
IPL 2022 Auction: Probable List Of Players Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Might Target
Openers: Aaron Finch, Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner
Both Dhawan and Finch are seasoned T20 cricketers. Dhawan’s recent form might make all the franchises go for him at the mega auction. RCB can buy Finch and make him the captain of the side. In the presence of AB De Villiers and Glenn Maxwell, Finch did not get many chances previously. Now with De Villiers gone, Finch can get a longer rope if he leads the franchise.
David Warner can be a massive buy for the franchise if they can rope him in. He will be opening the batting alongside Virat Kohli and the two can decimate any bowling attack from the opposition teams. Warner also gives them a leadership option having won an IPL title with SRH in 2016.
