IPL 2022 Auction: RCB has reserved high bids for Jason Holder, Ambati Rayudu and Riyan Parag

IPL 2022 Auction: Three Players RCB is More Likely to Bid For, in the Mega-Auction
IPL 2022 Auction: Three Players RCB is More Likely to Bid For, in the Mega-Auction

As per what the PTI reports suggest, RCB is more likely to bid for three players in the auction. Their list includes two senior-capped players and a young Indian uncapped player. As per the PTI reports, those three players are Jason Holder, Indian middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu, and Riyan Parag. Former West Indian skipper Jason Holder is in prime form with both bat and ball and will be hot property in the auction. He can also lead the team and is a power-hitter in the lower middle order who can finish off games. 

AB de Villiers has already retired from all forms of cricket, so he will not be available. That’s the main reason RCB will have a big gap to fill. On the other hand, former CSK member Ambati Rayudu is the second player on target for RCB. The right-handed batsman was once a regular member of the team and has good experience in the IPL. Rayudu has entered the auction as a wicket-keeper. 

As per the latest reports from news agency PTI, the RCB has reserved an amount of INR 12 crore for the West India all-rounder, Jason Holder. His all-rounder skills will definitely boost the RCB’s strength. They bid up to INR 8 crore for Rayudu and a maximum of INR 7 crore for Riyan Pragas. The sources stated, 

“For Holder, they have reserved INR 12 crores, and another INR 8 crores for Rayudu and Rs 7 crore for Parag. If they spend INR 27 crores approximately on these players. Then they would have another INR 28 crores left. The core with Kohli, Maxwell, Siraj, Holder, Rayudu, and Parag will be set. Let’s hope they can get two out of the preferred three.”

RCB has retained three players ahead of the auction: Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Mohammed Siraj. And they currently have a remaining purse value of INR 57 crore. Here are top online ipl betting sites and learn more about the latest update about cricket.

RCB’s Requirement for a star all-rounder

IPL Auction 2022: A quality all-rounder can be a game-changer in the shortest format of the game. And with Ben Stokes not available and Hardik and Stoinis already taken, Jason Holder could be the one in the auction. The source further added, 

“Ben Stokes isn’t available, Hardik Pandya and Marcus Stoinis are taken. Mitchell Marsh, you never know whether he can survive a full IPL with his injury-prone career, Holder has been phenomenal if one looks at his record. RCB will like to go the distance as some others will also pitch in.”
