Royal Challengers Bangalore may have these players to play in IPL 2023


IPL 2023: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) expected XI and full squad play. Royal Challengers Bangalore didn’t make much fuss at the IPL 2023 auction as they aimed to win their maiden IPL trophy. They went with the intention of preparing a backup and succeeded in doing so. Their biggest investment was Will Jacks which was bought for Rs 3.2 crore. Apart from that, the franchise has invested to purchase players like Reece Topley, Himanshu Singh, Manoj Bhandage, Rajan Kumar, Avinash Singh and Sonu Yadav.

Overall they put up a good auction and on paper the team appears to be settled now. They will have to turn the big names into achievements to get rid of the label of underachievers. Let’s take a look at the expected RCB play in IPL 2023.

Top 3 – VIRAT KOHLI, FAF DU PLESSIS, RAJAT PATIDAR

RCB Director Mike Hesson had already confirmed a few days ago that Virat Kohli and Faf Du Plessis would kick off the innings in the upcoming 16th edition of the IPL. Both performed exceptionally well in their previous two outings and are expected to get off to a shaky start. Kohli serves as the anchor hitter while captain Faf Du Plessis can get all his guns blazing for quick runs.

In third place we can expect to see Rajat Patidar, who set the stage ablaze with breathtaking innings towards the end of IPL 2022. He can play cricket without fear and will be the center of attraction.

Intermediate – GLENN MAXWELL, MAHIPAL LOMROR, DINESH KARTHIK, SHAHBAZ AHMED

Glenn Maxwell had a not-so-great IPL 2022, but we all know his abilities. He scored 301 runs in 13 innings last season. Management expects him to perform well this IPL season. He will be a key player in the team’s middle order.

Dinesh Karthik was one of the highlights of IPL 2022 for RCB. He played a few jewel innings and came in the bottom half of the inning to close out the game for the team. A strike rate of over 180 was a hallmark of his batting average last season. He will be looking forward to another good IPL performance.

They also have Mahipal Lomror and Shahbaz Nadim in good form and ready to fire. Indeed, Nadim could use his long handle to give Dinesh Karthik a good friend towards the end of the inning.

Bowling Attack – WANINDU HASARANGA, HARSHAL PATEL, MOHAMMED SIRAJ, JOSH HAZLEWOOD

RCB’s highest wicket taker at IPL 2022 Wanindu Hasarnga will be key as far as the RCB spin department is concerned. He will be assisted by the face trio of Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj and Josh Hazlewood.

Harshal Patel is having a rough time, but he is too good a bowler to be taken lightly. Australian speedster Josh Hazlewood has always been difficult for hitters to handle.
