The Bangalore-based franchise, which boasts one of the most loyal fan bases in cricket, headed into the auction with a purse value of 8.75 crores. While the other big names like Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians made the headlines after spending big bucks on Ben Stokes and Cameron Green respectively, RCB remained relatively quiet during the earlier rounds of the auction.

However, the Men in Red made their first signing of the auction after capturing the signature of the tall English pacer Reece Topley for a paltry 1.90 Crore. The left-arm pacer made a brilliant return to the limited overs format for England in 2022 and promises to be a brilliant addition to the star-studded bowling squad which features the likes of Mohammed Siraj and Josh Hazlewood.

England’s 24-year-old all-rounder Will Jacks was another notable signing by the Bangalore-based franchise in the IPL 2023 auction. The Englishman is a skilled batter who can also provide the goods with the ball.

Glenn Maxwell is Australia’s all-rounder. Maxwell is famous for right-handed off-break bowling and explosive batting. Maxwell holds the record for winning the match lost to Australia several times. However, Maxwell is in and out of the team. Maxwell will be part of Kings XI Punjab in the IPL-20. The Kings XI Punjab team will have a lot of expectations with Maxwell’s batting.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) entered the recent IPL 2022 Auction with a couple of objectives in mind. After Virat Kohli’s exit from the leadership bunch, the franchise faced added pressure to snap up a new skipper at the two-day event. The RCB think-tank shelled out ₹7 crore for South Africa’s Faf du Plessis, who seems to be an ideal candidate for the captaincy role.
