IPL 2022 Auction: Royal Challengers Bangalore have yet to win an IPL title. It is learned that Virat Kohli captained the team till last season.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore team is gearing up to add three key players to their squad for the IPL 2022 auction. The RCB, which is waiting for their first IPL title, is interested in Jason Holder, Ambati Rayudu and Ryan Parag. The talk is that RCB has fixed a huge amount for these three players. The Bangalore franchise will go into a mega auction with full readiness to take them. The RCB also has to choose their captain. After Kohli stepped down from the captaincy, the RCB will try to connect potential competitors for the captaincy. It remains to be seen whether he will try to bring in a player like Shreyas Iyer into the team or request Kohli to take over the captaincy for another season.
RCB team Rs. Enters the auction with Rs 57 crore. The team is believed to be interested in three players. Along with the holder, it includes former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman Ambati Rayudu and former Rajasthan youngster Ryan Parag. “It is learned that Rs 12 crore has been allotted for holder, Rs 8 crore for Rayudu and Rs 7 crore for Parag. If about Rs 27 crore is spent on these players .. there is still Rs 28 crore left in the RCB wallet. The key players in the squad will be decided in the form of Kohli, Maxwell, Siraj, Holder, Rayudu and Parag.
Can’t imagine what will happen at the auction. However, with the number of all-rounders dwindling, Holder has emerged as a contender for the big bid in the IPL. The team also sees Holder as captain. “Chris Morris is a good cricketer. However, he said that Rs. Eligible for bids over Rs 16 crore? Probably not. But, the lack of an all-rounder has left some franchises impatient. Although Yuvraj Singh has crossed his peak period, in 2015 the Delhi Daredevils (now Capitals) lost Rs. It is rumored to have been bought for Rs 15 crore. This is a brand, market game.
Ambati Rayudu is playing a key role in the success of CSK. The defending champion team wants to add Rayudu again. Rayudu enters the auction as a wicket-keeper and batsman. In such a situation, batting, wicket keeping and experience will no doubt make him an important competitor. The RCB left no chance of taking him along. Rayudu has so far played only for Mumbai Indians and Chennai in the IPL. The stone performance is very good. Rayudu can play in the middle order as well as in the opening.
The 2021 season was not as impressive for Ryan Parag after a stellar performance in IPL 2020. Ryan is a huge hitter and can also bowl off spin. It is hoped that this will help him get a hefty price at auction. He was a member of the Indian team that won the Under-19 World Cup in 2018. Parag is known for his quick runs in the lower order. However, he had to suffer from a lack of consistency.
