Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their game to Rajasthan Royals and could not make for playoffs. They were in better position than the other teams in the bottom of the points table earlier but could not keep up their momentum. Let us take a look at the players who might have helped Royal Challengers Bangalore to reach playoffs.
- Joe Root
He is one of the greatest cricketers of England in all the three formats. He is left unsold in the IPL 2018 auctions. This 27-year old player stays cool in the ground and turns crucial at the need of the hour. Brendon Mc Cullum did not do well for RCB in the current season. If RCB signed Joe Root instead of him, he might do well for RCB and make his mark for the team to reach playoffs.
- Lasith Malinga
Lasith Malinga is one of the greatest world class terrific bowlers. He is one of the terrific death bowlers. Surprisingly, he is left unsold in the auctions for IPL 2018. He might replace Nathan-Coulter-Niel instead of Colin-De Grandhomme who could not make his mark for RCB in this season. Malinga is known for the fiery attack in the last 5-6 overs of the game. If he played for RCB, he might help out the team to reach one of the top 4 positions in the points table.
- Moises Henriques
Moises Henriques is of the unsold players in IPL auctions 2018. RCB chose Corey Anderson and Chris Woakes as the all-rounders but both impacted less in this season. Henriques played 57 IPL games and scored 969 runs beside picking 38 wickets. He seemed an apt replacement for Colin De Grandhomme and Nathan- Coulter Niel. The RCB might have reached playoffs if they replaced the injured player Nathan-Coulter Niel with this all-rounder.
