Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
With a huge purse of Rs 27.90 Crore remaining, Royal Challengers Bangalore are bound to make some high bids for international cricketing stars in the upcoming player auction. Bangalore has released as many as eleven players from their last season’s squad. Right now, they have got 13 players on board.
As far as wicket-keeping is concerned, Bangalore has got only a single specialist player in the form of veteran Indian southpaw Parthiv Patel. But if any kind of injury happens to him in early or mid-season, then there is nobody in the squad to replace him as a specialist wicket-keeper. At this point, Mushfiqur comes into the picture.
Recently retired South African legend AB de Villiers has given up on gloving job long ago and now plays as a specialist top-order power-hitting batsman in RCB. If they get their hands on Rahim, he can add that stability to their middle-order which they are lacking from past few seasons. They have got a strong top order but it’s the middle order concern which they need to address if they want to stand a chance to win their first-ever IPL.
