Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) released the fewest number of players (five) among the 10 franchises.



Despite Virat Kohli having the toughest IPL campaign with the bat, Royal Challengers Bangalore made it to the playoffs last time. However, unlike their same-old ‘ring out the old, ring in the new’ approach, they have kept their faith in their base this time, and have released only five players.

In the build-up to IPL 2023 auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) released the fewest number of players (five) among the 10 franchises, which, of course, was quite surprising. In the past, they tended to let go of numerous stars from their roster to find themselves among the ones who have had the highest purse in the mini-auction. This time, Faf du Plessis and Co. only had INR 8.75 Crore, the second-lowest money after Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

Although the Royal Challengers head coach Mike Hesson is confident about the availability of Glenn Maxwell for IPL 2023, the franchise is expected to get someone from the mini-auction who can deliver a similar role. Maxwell broke his leg while celebrating the birthday of one of his friends in November, and has already been ruled out of the ongoing BBL. Besides, they need someone like Mayank Agarwal who can bat aggressively at the top, which will allow Virat Kohli to bat at his familiar No. 3 role.

RCB have opted for Reece Topley - tall left arm quick from England and he might get a IPL debut for the franchise. They got him for ₹1.90 Crores beating CSK and MI in a bidding war, after a while, roped in rookie Himangshu Sharma for ₹20 Lakhs. Then they brought in another Englishman by spending ₹3.2 Crores on Will Jacks. To conclude their 25-member squad, they acquired upcapped Avinash Singh and Sonu Yadav.
