Royal Challengers Bangalore, who will be searching for a top Indian player to head the side after Virat Kohli said that he will not be leading the club in IPL 2022, is one probable destination for KL Rahul.

KL Rahul, the captain of the Punjab Kings and the current leader in the Orange Cap race, is expected to leave his current IPL team next season, according to media reports. Despite the fact that PBKS’ season in the T20 league has already concluded, Rahul is the leading run-scorer in IPL 2021 with 626 runs in 13 games.

According to a source on the Cricbuzz website, he has been approached by a few franchises that are interested in acquiring him. There is still a lack of clarity on the amount of retentions and Right To Match (RTM) cards available for a franchise because the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has yet to declare the retention policy for the following season, when there will be a mega-auction.

“A franchise has the right to utilise the RTM cards for its existing players when they become up for auction, and it is thought that talks are underway behind the scenes to ensure Rahul’s departure from the Kings is amicable. “A Punjab Kings official flatly denied holding talks on the issue,” Cricbuzz said. Rahul, who is presently in the Indian T20 World Cup bubble, could not be approached for comment.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, who will be searching for a top Indian player to head the side after Virat Kohli said that he will not be leading the club in IPL 2022, is one probable destination for Rahul.

Aside from RCB, a handful of additional clubs are likely to join the T20 competition in the near future, with the BCCI having already floated a tender for two more teams in the IPL 2022. MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, has previously stated that he is unsure if he would be part of the ‘Yellow Army’ next season.
