The next edition of the Indian T20 League is going to kick off in 2023. Before that, teams or franchises will attend an auction with the motive to strengthen their teams. Speaking about the Bangalore franchise, they ended in the fourth position in the table after the group stage. They gained 16 points from 14 matches.

However, they lost the second qualifier against Rajasthan and failed to qualify for the final. Several players performed well as they had a great run under their new captain, Faf du Plessis. But, there were several players who did not perform as per expectations. So, the team management will look to trade them with other franchises ahead of the next Indian T20 League season. 

Here are five players whom the Bangalore franchise can trade ahead of the next season of the Indian T20 League

This batter from West Indies has impressed global fans with his power-hitting abilities in different T20 competitions. In 2021, Sherfane Rutherford scored 262 runs at a strike rate of 127.18 in the Caribbean Premier League. Then, the Bangalore franchise bought him in the auction ahead of the last edition.

Glenn Maxwell missed a few games at the start of that season. Hence, the franchise gave Rutherford chances. But, he scored only 33 runs in three matches with a strike rate of 66. After Maxwell’s arrival, they did not consider Rutherford for a single game in the tournament. Therefore, they will look to trade him ahead of the next season of the Indian T20 League.
