Bangalore is a team that has some amount of work to do in the upcoming Indian T20 League mega auction. They need to look for a captain, to begin with, and then move on to build the rest of their squad. They have had some brilliant players in the past, but they have not been able to get their hands on the tournament trophy. Bangalore will look forward to changing that in the upcoming season. With Virat Kohli stepping down as the team’s captain, Bangalore needs a good captain as a priority. They will have to look for someone that matches their ideologies and can fill in the shoes of Virat Kohli. From the retained players to the remaining budget in the purse, here is everything you need to know about Bangalore ahead of the mega auction.

Retained Players

Virat Kohli for 15 crores, Glenn Maxwell for 11 crores, and Mohammed Siraj for 7 crores.

Remaining Purse

Bangalore has spent 33 crores to retain three players. They now have 57 crores left in their purse from 90 crores going into the mega auction.

Who Chennai should target in the auction?

David Warner: Bangalore can have just what they are looking for in David Warner. He is a good captaincy option, and he was the winning captain for Hyderabad against Bangalore in 2016. Warner is an aggressive player, just like Virat Kohli, and the team can trust him to carry the same playing style that Virat created.

Jason Holder: Holder is another captaincy prospect, but they should target him for his all-rounder skills. Many might not consider him the best all-rounder, but he is a very underrated player. He can bat well and is flexible with his position. He can always give the team four overs in every match.

Who Bangalore can buy back in the auction?

Players like AB de Villiers are no longer an option to buy back for Bangalore, but they did have some other players who did well for them in 2021. They can look to buy back Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar in the auction. Chahal has been with them for many years and Sundar has proved to be a good all-rounder for them.

Bangalore’s auction strategy

Bangalore first and foremost needs a team captain, and then they need to build a strong team. They will look to buy some good names in the bowling unit to pair with Mohammed Siraj. Bowling has been a hurdle for the team in the past.
