LIVE | Royal Challengers Bangalore Full Squad, IPL 2023 Auction
After finishing in the playoffs last IPL season, Royal Challengers Bangalore released just five players ahead of the IPL 2023 auction, the least among all teams. The Faf du Plessis-led side have already traded Jason Behendorff to Mumbai Indians. The star-studded side could have seven more players out of which two could be foreign. RCB would look for a back-up to Indian pacer and top order batsman Josh Hazlewood to open with Du Plessis as it would give him the freedom to join Virat Kohli at No.3, his usual slot for India in T20Is.
