Under Faf du Plessis’ new direction, Royal Challengers Bangalore joined the 2022 Indian Premier League season. The RCB displayed outstanding cricket and appeared poised to win the competition. However, they were eliminated from the competition after failing to defeat Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier.
The Bangalore franchise’s prospective campaign featured a lot of appeal. In light of this, the think tank made the decision to keep the majority of its players after the IPL 2023 auction and release only five. The Royal Challengers Bangalore will prefer to fill the vacant places with top-tier players as they attempt to win their first IPL championship in the upcoming season.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have traditionally had a strong bowling lineup, followed by foreign hitters, but their strategy failed last year. Williamson served as the franchise’s captain for IPL 2022, however, they did not have the finest of seasons, coming in eighth place in the standings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad released Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, Jagadeesha Suchith, Priyam Garg, Ravikumar Samarth, Romario Shepherd, Saurabh Dubey, Sean Abbott, Shashank Singh, Shreyas Gopal, Sushant Mishra, Vishnu Vinod.
Let’s have a look at the 3 players released by Sunrisers Hyderabad that the Royal Challengers Bangalore can target.
IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Players Released By Sunrisers Hyderabad That Royal Challengers Bangalore Can Target
Pooran, who was purchased by SRH at the IPL 2022 mega-auction at a huge sum of 10.75 crores, was unable to live up to his high price and was fired. Pooran managed a total of 306 in the 14 games he played in the IPL this year, with just two half-centuries to his credit.
Pooran, one of cricket’s most proficient strikers, has the ability to win games in the shortest format. Additionally, in addition to being a top wicketkeeper, he is a multifaceted player who clubs long to have on their teams.
Royal Challengers Bangalore can bid for Pooran in case Glenn Maxwell, sustained an injury and there is no clarity on his IPL participation. It will be an issue for RCB if Maxwell fails to recover on time for the IPL 2023 and therefore the Bangalore-based franchise needs to be ready with the backup.
