IPL 2022: 3 players RCB might release ahead of next season

RCB started their IPL 2022 campaign with a new captain Faf du Plessis as Virat Kohli decided to step down

from the role after IPL 2021. This season went really well for Bangalore-based team but their campaign ended in the second qualifier of the tournament after losing to Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets.

In this year’s mega auction, the RCB franchise bought some players who didn’t perform as expected and didn’t play in many matches as well.

Ahead of the next season, the team management might be thinking to release some of the players and plug the holes in the squad in the auction.

Here’s a look at the three probable releases from RCB before IPL 2023:

1. Siddarth Kaul

Siddarth Kaul was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the mega auction for IPL 2022 earlier this year as he could only scalp only seven wickets in eight matches last season.

In the mega auction, the 32-year-old pacer was bought by RCB for his base price of INR 75 lakh.  But he got to play only one match, a must-win encounter, against Gujarat Titans in their last league game. Kaul conceded 43 runs in his quota of four overs and went wicketless in that game. So, he might have to go to the auction again next year. 

2. David Willey

David Willey’s IPL career hasn’t been really promising so far. RCB added him to the squad for his base price of INR 2 crores.

He got a chance to play for RCB in initial matches as Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell was not available.  Willey also batted at number four in the line-up. Batting in two innings of the four matches he played, the southpaw managed to score only 18 runs. Moreover, Willey claimed only one wicket to his name in four apperances.

3. Karn Sharma

Karn Sharma was bought by RCB in the mega auction of IPL 2022 at his base price of INR 50 lakh.

However. the leg-spinner couldn’t get a chance in playing XI throughout the season.  RCB decided to go with young Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga during their whole campaign.  So it was quite hard to adjust Sharma into the bowling combination of the team. So, RCB may release him to free up their purse and get any other player.
