Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the most loved and most followed franchises. In the IPL, the RCB team, management, and fans have always been in the chatter. Virat Kohli has been the face of the Royal Challengers Bangalore since the inception of this franchise. The franchise now needs to build a team around Virat Kohli and the other players. Here is a look at the top 5 players that the Royal Challengers Bangalore can target in IPL 2022 Mega Auction:

Royal Challengers Bangalore was the first team that showed faith in Shivam Dube and picked him in the 2019 IPL Auction. The pace-bowling all-rounder is one of the rarest commodities in India. The Challengers made a huge mistake by releasing him in the 2020 IPL draft but now have a chance to negate that. Dube is an explosive finisher and if required can be used as a floater. His performance against the Chennai Super Kings in the second leg of IPL 2021 just defines his class.  

Royal Challengers Bangalore Will Target Jofra Archer/ Nathan Coulter-Nile/ Adam Milne: 

The boys from Bangalore have always found it difficult to get a good overseas pace bowler. Every successful team has this ingredient. Mumbai from 2020 had Trent Boult, Chennai from 2011/2012 had Hilfenhaus, Kolkata from 2014 had Morne Morkel. Similarly, if Bangalore needs to write a fairytale script, an overseas fast bowler is a must! Jofra Archer, Nathan Coulter-Nile, or Adam Milne can fit the bill.  

Royal Challengers Bangalore Will Target Devdutt Padikkal/ KS Bharat: 

The Royal Challengers will target DDP or Kona Bharat. The success of the past two years can be given to a strong opening combination and to keep that going, Devdutt Padikkal or Kona Bharat is a good pick. Kona Bharat also provides the wicket-keeping option. Both these players have previously been an integral part of this franchise.  

Rahul Chahar/ Kuldeep Yadav: 

Both are like-to-like changes! IMG SRC: CricTracker

The Royal Challengers Bangalore will go all-guns-blazing for a top-flight leg spinner. The Chinnaswami Stadium is small in size and to pick wickets, you need a leg spinner. Yuzvendra Chahal had been doing very well for the franchise and his departure has left a big void. This can be filled with Rahul Chahar or Kuldeep Yadav. Both the players are great with the white ball in hand and can beat the batsman in the air. They are a like-to-like change for Yuzi! 

Royal Challengers Bangalore Will Target Devon Conway/ Rassie Van Der Dussen:

To fill the big shoes of AB De Villers you need a tried and tested product. The Royal Challengers will look for the same and Rassie Van Der Dussen and Devon Conway are two players who fit the bill. Dussen and his innings against England in the 2021 T20 World Cup show his ability. Not to forget Devon Conway and his contributions or New Zealand. All in all, the RCB Management can select between the two.
