New Delhi: Now only 2 matches are left for IPL 2021 to end. On October 15, it will be decided that this year’s big trophy is going in the hands of which team. Let us tell you that RCB, captained by Virat Kohli, has failed to win the IPL title once again. At the end of the tournament, many RCB players failed to show a good game, so next year’s mega auction can see some big changes in this team.
Will break with Kohli-de Villiers
A bad news has come out for the fans of RCB in the IPL next year. Actually it is believed that RCB can drop AB de Villiers, famous all over the world by the name of Mr 360, next year. This claim has been made by former India opener and 2-time IPL champion captain Gautam Gambhir. Gambhir believes that RCB team will retain Glenn Maxwell in place of de Villiers.
Maxwell will be retained
Actually Glenn Maxwell has done amazing in IPL 2021. Maxwell has also become the highest run-scorer for RCB in this season. It seems almost certain that next year he will be retained in the team instead of de Villiers. Maxwell was included by RCB for Rs 14.25 crore this year and is set to be retained in view of de Villiers’ poor performance in the IPL.
These will be the other two players
The other two players who will be retained for RCB will be Virat Kohli himself and star leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Gambhir said that next year either Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel will be retained by the RCB team. Gambhir said about de Villiers, ‘I think RCB will retain Glenn Maxwell because he is the future, not de Villiers.’
Virat left the captaincy
With this, Virat Kohli has also left the captaincy of RCB in IPL. This was Virat’s last match while captaining RCB. Virat Kohli wanted him to leave the captaincy in the IPL with the IPL trophy, but it did not happen and he would have to wait again.
