This was the culmination of two years of hard work. And sweat for RCB that resulted in them burying the ghosts of a wooden spoon in 2019 to advance to the playoffs. In consecutive 2020 and 2021 seasons.
With the end of their 2021 IPL campaign. All eyes will be on December when next season’s IPL mega auction takes place.
Most of the big players will be available. And franchises will only be able to keep three players for the 2022 IPL. This means all eight teams will undergo a major overhaul.
“I think they have got to make some tough decisions. Of course, Maxwell has come in and listened to what their coaches have to say about him. He has pretty much delivered what was expected of him,” Lara said on Cricket.com
“Virat Kohli is a franchise winner anywhere he goes so he is going to be retained in that position. You want to go for people, who you feel. If you put them in the market, you can get them back. I would go with Maxwell as a second choice. And also, maybe a player like Padikkal.”
When asked why AB de Villiers was not on Lara’s roster. The legendary hitter was quite clear in his mind saying. That while ABD is a superstar as he does not play any other form of cricket other than IPL.
“Why would you want to retain AB de Villiers when he is not scoring runs and not getting any younger. You’re playing six weeks of cricket for the entire year. And if you think he is going to be ready every time the IPL comes around. Then do it but we have seen the situation with Chris Gayle at 42. And he plays leagues after leagues all the year and still he struggles,” Lara said.
