Ab de Villiers, a former player for the RCB declared that he would donate his No. Rajat Patidar was given the No. 17 jersey by the team because the franchise believes the Indian batter will be a pillar for the team in the future. The injury forced Patidar to withdraw from the 2023 IPL season.

One of RCB’s top players from last year was Patidar. De Villiers predicted Patidar would stick with the RCB in the future. According to De Villiers, Du Plessis would help the RCB win the championship.

De Villiers said he would give it to Patidar because the Indian batsman appeared to be a reliable player and would eventually become a pillar for RCB.

“That’s a challenging question. Rajat Patidar perhaps, “The Pata Man. That’s the moniker I gave him. He has good looks. He will continue to support RCB. I want to give it to a kid, possibly Rajat.”
