Before starting the Tata IPL 2022 auction, RCB, or Royal Challengers Bangalore, () had 57 crores in their purse. They retained their best players like Virat Kohli (15 Crore), Glenn Maxwell (11 Cr.), and Mohammed Siraj (7 Cr.). They also had a wish to retain Ab De Villers, but he announced retirement from all cricket leagues. Before the auction, they were looking for a player who had the captaincy spark in them.

When you see the past history, you will find that they had purchased top T20 players like Christopher Henry Gayle, Ab De Villers, and more. When ABD retired, they were looking for a suitable leader. The owner of IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore is United spirits limited, which is a big bull in an Indian alcoholic beverage company. It is the subsidiary of Diageo firm, based in London. Previously, Vijay Mallya was the chairman and non-executive director of RCB, and now Mahendra Kumar Sharma.  

As you all know, Virat Kohli has stepped down as captain of the franchise after IPL 2021 and expressed his wish to play like a cricketer. RCB has options like Dhawan and Finch as a captain at the auction table, but they chose Faf Du Plessis as their new captain, and he comes with a similar kind of cricket from the same team.

They have many new players, and it looks like they have a good combination of experienced and young talents. Still, they are struggling because of uneven gameplay. Let’s have a look at the RCB camp players and hope for the Ee sala cup namde.
