Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are assuredly the underachievers of IPL. Over the years they have had some of the biggest names of cricket but they still haven’t won the IPL trophy. The recently concluded IPL 2020 was a decent campaign for them as they finally qualified for the playoffs after 2016.
However, Virat Kohli’s RCB side still has some work to do and bring in some changes before the next season. In this feature, we try to predict who can be those 3 players in which RCB will be interested to obtain during the next auction. Mike Hesson and Simon Katich will be desiring to acquire these players to make RCB a more formidable unit that can help them finally win their maiden trophy.
3 players RCB should target ahead of IPL 2021:
3. Ben Cutting
Well no RCB fan has ever forgotten Ben Cutting after his heroics playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016 final. The seasoned T20 all-rounder is the kind of player RCB lacks in their lower middle order. Cutting is a power hitter that can be destructive during the death overs and can also be a 5th bowling option which is always crucial for any captain.
Surprisingly Cutting remained unsold in the last auction for his base price which was Rs. 75 lakhs. The Australian has the expertise of playing T20 cricket in leagues all around the world. That is why his experience can be vital for RCB in the next season of the IPL.
The 33-year-old is always amongst the runs and wickets whenever he represents any side in T20 cricket. In his IPL he has a strike rate of touch 170 which is why he will be a perfect inclusion in the current RCB side who are a bit top-heavy.
