IPL 2024 RCB Released Players

RCB Target Players in IPL 2024 Auction

Travis Head, Mitchell Starc, Daryl Mitchell, Rachin Ravindra, Ben Stokes, Gerald Coetzee, Pat Cummins.

RCB is determined to break their 16-year curse and secure the IPL 2024 trophy. To increase their chances, RCB aims to build a strong squad by recruiting influential players who can turn the game in their favor. Addressing a long-standing concern, RCB acknowledges the need to improve their bowling line-up, especially in the crucial death bowling aspect.

Australia’s Travis Head is a key player in focus for the upcoming IPL 2024 auction. He previously played for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals in 2016 and 2017, bringing IPL experience with him. With 205 runs and two wickets in 10 matches, Head has proven his abilities. Daryl Mitchell, who scored a century against India in Dharamsala, is also gaining attention in the auction.

Since his time with Rajasthan Royals, Mitchell has matured and developed all-round skills that make him a sought-after candidate. CSK is eyeing him as a potential replacement for Ben Stokes.

Meanwhile, Rachin Ravindra was New Zealand’s standout performer in the ODI World Cup 2023. His impressive spin-bowling all-rounder skills have attracted interest from RCB, making him set for a lucrative IPL contract.

Gerald Coetzee, the leading wicket-taker in the World Cup from South Africa, is expected to be a significant player in the IPL auction due to his wicket-taking ability and energetic approach.

All of these players bring diverse skills and experiences that make them key prospects for the upcoming IPL season. Additionally, RCB recognizes the need to strengthen their middle-order batting. In IPL 2023, the team heavily relied on Kohli, Du Plessis, and Maxwell in their batting lineup. As the runners-up of 2009, 2011, and 2016, RCB has identified areas for improvement as they approach the auction.
