Royal Challengers Bangalore will Retain Virat Kohli in IPL 2021: – 

Virat Kohli has been the face of RCB since season 1 and he is bound to get retained!

You say Royal Challengers Bangalore and the fans hear Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli is the heart of this franchise and his retention at the first-mentioned retention price is fixed. Royal Challengers Bangalore heavily depend on Virat Kohli’s batting and having him at number 3 or as an opener gives the side an advantage. Well, having the best batsman of the world in your team itself increases your morale four-folds, isn’t it? Although he will not continue as captain his contribution to Bangalore is unmatched. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore will Retain AB De Villiers in IPL 2021: – 

Royal Challengers Bangalore will retain AB De Villiers in IPL 2022. AB De Villiers currently doesn’t have age playing in his favor. But his fitness is above all the others and with the mega auction lasting for a period of 3 years, Bangalore will retain AB De Villiers. No introduction is required for “Mr. 360 Degree”. On his day he wins matches single-handedly. One can never witness a Bangalore team without the VK-ABD duo! If one is the heart the other is the beat!  

Only a few cricket fans do not know that ABD and RCB have a special relation!

Royal Challengers Bangalore will Retain Yuzvendra Chahal in IPL 2021: – 

Royal Challengers Bangalore are bound to retain this spin wizard! Yuzvendra Chahal has to be on the retention list of Royal Challengers Bangalore. The reason for this is that Yuzvendra Chahal has been an honest servant of the franchise since 2015 and with the kind of abilities he has he will perform for at least 4 more years. He is difficult to pick and also has learned to bowl quickly in the air! Yuzi has been giving 2 overs in the powerplay as well. He has an economy of 7.5 while playing at the bowlers’ graveyard, Chinnaswamy Stadium! 

Yuzi has been the backbone of RCB’s bowling since 2015!

Royal Challengers Bangalore will Retain Glenn Maxwell/ Devdutt Padikkal in IPL 2021: – 

With the kind of performance that Glenn Maxwell and Devdutt Padikkal have done for the boys from Bangalore in IPL 2021, they become an automatic choice ahead of Siraj. Devdutt too has an equal chance alongside Maxwell because the opening problems are all resolved with Devdutt in the mix. Apart from that Maxwell is the more explosive batsman. Both the players have equal value in the market and it’s now up to the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s management about whom to go with. 

Selecting between Padikkal and Maxwell is going to be an up hill task for the RCB management!
