Ajit Agarkar, Former Indian Pacer and arch cricket expert has said that if Virat Kohli Could take up the captaincy for the franchise Royal Challengers Bengaluru, it would be easiest solution for the team.

Kohli had stepped down as RCB skipper after IPL 2021 and was retained by the franchise ahead of the mega auction 2022.

“If Virat Kohli can take over the captaincy and if he is happy to do it and if he has the energy to do it, I think that will be the easiest solution for them. At the end of the day, we have seen RCB over the years; they haven’t invested enough money in making a proper team of 12, 13 or 14 players with enough depth,” said Agarkar on Star Sports show ‘Game Plan: IPL auction special’.

“It has always been dependent on the top three, not enough middle-order players; and if you don’t have the money, you can’t do that again.

“So if you break the bank for one player, doesn’t matter how good he is, (he) will win you games but will never win you competition”, Ajit Agarkar Added.

IPL 2022 Player Auction list was revealed last week with a total of 590 cricketers set to go under the hammer during the two-day mega auction which will take place in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13, 2022.

Ajit Agarkar said, “Yes, I think so. I think to a large extent you have got some of the big names, like Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, those sorts of names that you have been able to retain, which was not the case before when the two new teams had come earlier, which was a lot harder on those new teams.”

“So I am not sure if it’s even-stevens at the moment. It’s a good thing, but you still have to build now for the future for more teams. Older teams are able to only retain their four players, which is never easy, say for the likes of Mumbai Indians or some of the stronger teams because they have more than four players that they would have wanted to retain. “

“But yes, it is going to be about who gets the best Indians and who makes the use of that in the auction and eventually build your team around it,” he added.

The 10 IPL franchisees – Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Team Ahmedabad will be bidding for the players.
