RCB decided to retain Virat Kohli (Rs 15 crore), Glenn Maxwell (Rs 11crore), Mohammed Siraj (Rs 7 crore). They did not use their fourth retention. It was quite surprising because the franchise left out the likes of Chahal. The mega auction will be even more important for RCB because their most favorite player, AB De Villiers has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. It will be tough task for the management to find a replacement of ABD.
Let’s take a look at five players whom RCB can target in IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
The omission of Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal from the retention list was very shocking. The reason is not clear as to why this happened. However, there is high probability that RCB will go for Chahal at the IPL Auction 2022. They will try to pick him at a lower price. He picked up 139 wickets for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 113 matches. However, the two new franchises may look to sign him and stop him from entering the mega auction.
