The Royal Challengers Bangalore retained 3 players ahead of the IPL 2022 auction: Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Mohammed Siraj. Roping in a veteran in Faf du Plessis was one of the smartest moves by the team management, for the Protea cricketer brings in the vast experience of winning titles in the cash-rich tournament.
Faf du Plessis opening alongside a young Anuj Rawat, who’s done considerably well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali 2021-22, followed by Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, who was a gem of a player with over 500 runs to his name in the last edition, forms their core of batters. Add to that, there’s Dinesh Karthik and Mahipal Lomror in the middle-order, both terrific sets of hard-hitters, who would be given the license to go bonkers from the word go.
Bowling-wise, they have one of the best pace trios in the tournament, namely Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj, which pretty much solves their issue of bowling in powerplay and death overs. Among the spinners, RCB has the fortune of having Wanindu Hasaranga – No.1 T20I bowler at present – and a two-season old Shahbaz Ahmed, who left the cricketing fraternity spellbound with his economical exhibitions in the last edition.
In 2021, the Men in Red improved on their cricketing front and sealed the 3rd spot ahead of the playoffs. Though their journey came to end in the Eliminator on both occasions, yet, the brand of cricket which they essayed throughout kept the fans cheering for the Bangalore-based franchise in each and every feud.
