Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Fans of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have witnessed multiple changes in the team’s captaincy for almost after 9 years. Former South African captain FAF Du Plessis has been selected as the new captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). It is anticipated that he would lead the RCB to new heights under his leadership; nevertheless, RCB supporters will be missing Australian players Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood.

Both Maxwell and Hazlewood are performing at a high level, with Hazlewood regaining his form after returning from international commitments. As a result of his participation in a test match for RCB against Pakistan, Jason Behrendorff will not be available for the team’s first three matches.

But we should give thanks to because at the major auction for the Indian Premier League 2022, RCB’s primary focus was on recruiting suitable successors such as Sherfane Rutherford, Finn Allen, and others.

Punjab Kings

Mayank Agarwal was selected as the new captain of the Punjab Kings before the IPL 2022 mega auction. Prior to this decision, the Punjab Kings did not re-sign KL Rahul as their captain and instead went with Mayank Agarwal. Mayank Agarwal has previously captained the Punjab Kings in KL Rahul’s absence.

Jonny Bairstow, who is currently playing for England in the West Indies as part of their tour, will not be available for the franchise to use in the first match of the Indian Premier League 2022. The fans will also miss the presence of standout bowler Kagiso Rabada, who was unavailable since he was busy playing for South Africa on their tour of Bangladesh.

Their bowling lineup appears to be lacking in strength because of the absence of Kagiso Rabada, and a significant amount of effort is needed from Nathan Ellis and Arshdeep Singh.
