The IPL 2021 went through a topsy turvy ride before being finally cancelled for an indefinite period on May 4. All was going smooth inside IPL’s strict bio-bubble until some positive COVID-19 cases emerged in Kolkata’s camp and then, there was no stopping. Almost every franchise started reporting a positive case and the entire league had to be called off. However, keeping in line with the future prospects, IPL 2022 is all set to hold a mega auction.

The mega auction 2022 will see a lot of players moving here and there and two new franchises are also expected to pitch in. Taking about Royal Challengers Bangalore, the franchise had a great start to their IPL 2021 campaign, having won most of their league stage matches in the beginning. It was for the first time that they remained in the top four from the very start. With the new auction coming in 2022, the team would like to maintain the same rhythm.

The franchise also has a record of releasing some big names from their squad in a short while. There also have been players who didn’t get good chances with RCB and got released. Therefore, Bangalore might target some of its old players in the next auction.

Avesh Khan turned out to be a surprise package for DC’s squad this season as he stunned all with his classy bowling show. He marked his IPL debut with RCB in 2017 but got only one match to display his skills where he failed to pick a wicket.

In the year 2018, he was roped in by Delhi and got just one match each in the 2019 and 2020 seasons. It was only in 2021 that he got all the matches with his team owing to his perfect show right from day one. Khan picked 14 wickets in 8 matches he played with DC in the season.

He maintained an economy of 7.70 and an average of 16.50 to keep his team moving. He was one of the top contenders for the Purple Cap. RCB would definitely like to have him back in the subsequent season.
