IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Players Delhi Capitals (DC) Can Target.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) always had superstars in their lineups, from the now-Indian coach Rahul Dravid in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League, to the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Chris Gayle. Yet, they never have really gelled as a unit, and the title has remained elusive.
Royal Challengers Bangalore had a good outing in IPL 2022. In fact, they have been doing well in the last few seasons. That said, the expectation will be that the franchise must go all the way. They do have a few gaps in the squad. The Faf du Plessis-led squad can target a few good IPL 2023 auction signings but can also a few talented cricketers in the IPL 2023 trade window.
Glenn Maxwell is expected to be retained, but he has broken his ankle and will be out for nearly six months. As a result, he may miss the IPL 2023 entirely. RCB will make a last-minute decision.
Australia’s left-arm fast bowler Jason Behrendorff returned to Mumbai Indians after Royal Challengers Bangalore traded him ahead of IPL 2023. He was acquired by Royal Challengers at the IPL 2022 auction for his base price of INR 75 lakh but didn’t get any game-time.
Delhi Capitals who still wait to enlist their name in the IPL winners list ended up in 5th position in the last IPL season. Delhi Capitals have won 7 games in the 14 games they played and pushed to 5th position in the IPL 2022 Points Table with a total point of 14. GMR Sports Pvt. Ltd & JSW Sports Pvt Ltd owned team have been inconsistent throughout the IPL 2022 season.

Ahead of the 2022 season

Ahead of the 2022 season, RCB had retained Virat Kohli (Rs. 16 crore), Maxwell (Rs. 12 crore), and Mohammed Siraj (Rs. 7 crore) while buying Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel (Rs. 10.75 crore). They purchased Faf Du Plessis for Rs.7 crore and named him captain. All of them are expected to stay with the franchise.
Anuj Rawat was a young player the Bengaluru-based franchise invested in but his time at the franchise might be coming to an end. Among overseas players, the likes of Sherfane Rutherford and David Willey might have to come back in the auction pool.

English all-rounder, David Willey was picked by the RCB at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction for his base price of INR 2 crore. David Willey made his debut for England in 2015 in limited-overs cricket. He has been around the England setup for a few years now with 43 T20I matches besides 60 ODI matches to his name.
The left-arm fast bowler can also add in some handy runs lower down the order. David Willey made his IPL debut for Chennai Super Kings in the 2018 edition of the league. He has played two IPL seasons in 2018 and 2022, picking up only 3 scalps in 7 games and scoring 18 runs. RCB is set to release him and Delhi Capitals can target him in the IPL 2023 mini-auctions.
