I got to know my positive side as well as my negatives: Anuj Rawat

The 22-year-old Delhi player was elated to share the dressing room with the likes of Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik in IPL 2022. Rawat also said he learned about the areas that he needs to work on improving.

“Before Royal Challengers Bangalore, I was a part of Rajasthan Royals but I did not get chances there. But while playing for RCB, I got to know my positive side as well as my negatives. I know my negatives now, where I need to work on,” Rawat told news agency ANI.

“These are the legends of the game. I am from the same academy as Virat Kohli. I know his journey. I have seen him when he was playing in Under-19 and where he is now. And talking about Faf du Plessis, Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) and Dinesh Karthik as well, I have learnt a lot of things from them,” he added.

Rawat was bought by Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020 for INR 80 lakh but got just two matches to play across two seasons. The Delhi player was sold to RCB for INR 3.4 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction.

RCB made through to IPL 2022 playoffs by dint of Mumbai Indians beating Delhi Capitals in their final group stage fixture. RCB’s title hopes were crushed by the Royals in the Qualifier 2 clash.

3 Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Players That Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Can Target In IPL 2023

Kolkata Knight Riders reached the final of IPL 2021 and had a very ordinary season in 2022. The side finished seventh on the points table under their new skipper Shreyas Iyer who was bagged by the franchise for 12.25 crores.

KKR never found a proper playing combination and made as many as 21 changes throughout the season, the most by any franchise. The number of changes highlighted the inability of the management to find a perper playing combination. Ideally, they would need a top-order wicketkeeper-batter, an Indian middle-order batter and an Indian or overseas spinner to cover up all the possible loopholes.

Heading into IPL 2023, they need to release a lot of their players to buy some new ones who would fit the combination and requirement. Several reputed international T20 cricketers were benched throughout the season by the Knight Riders which brought them a lot of criticism. In this article, we take a look at three RCB players KKR can target in IPL 2023.

Karthi played forKKR from 2018 to 202. However, he was not at his best for the franchise. Having moved to RCB and being entrusted the role of finisher, the veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman flourished for his new franchise. KKR should ideally target to get DK back in if there is even a slight opportunity of doing so. In Karthik, KKR can get a good keeper and also an experienced middle-order batter.

Chennai Super Kings ended IPL 2022 on the ninth position in the points table. The MS Dhoni-led side finished with four wins and as many as 10 losses and ended with Mumbai Indians in terms of points.

MSD confirmed his availability in IPL 2023 much to the happiness of the Indian and the IPL fans in general. The skipper has a crucial rebuilding phase to do with his side. He has to seek players who can be the pillar of the side in times to come in the future.

With the mega auction happening at the start of the IPL 2022 season, there will be smaller auctions and player transfers in IPL 2023. The franchises can release the players who they think can be released in order to strengthen their side even more by buying other players both Indian and overseas.

With potentially all franchises releasing a few players, CSK has the opportunity to add a few players from the other franchises now to their side. In this article, we take a look at three RCB players whom CSK can target in IPL 2023.

In an ideal scenario, RCB would not release Harshal Patel from their squad. He ended with 33 wickets in IPL 2021 and the franchise bought him back for 10.75 crores and ended with 19 wickets this season. Harshal will be an ideal bowler in the death with the side looking to move over Dwayne Bravo.
