Many cricket enthusiasts are anticipating the IPL 2022 mega auction. A period in which each squad tries to select the best qualified captain. The most pressing issue for RCB in the upcoming Indian Premier League season would be who will succeed Virat Kohli as captain.
According to rumours, Kannadiga Manish Pandey would captain the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2022.
The franchise is seeking for someone who can successfully carry on the legacy and efforts of Virat Kohli. It will be interesting to see who replaces Virat Kohli in the upcoming IPL season. Manish Pandey, Team India’s middle-order batsman and the first Indian to get a century in an IPL match, will captain RCB in IPL 2022.
Virat Kohli has resigned as RCB captain ahead of the IPL 2022 season.
According to sources, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are thinking about signing Manish Pandey in the IPL 2022 super auction. Sunrisers Hyderabad paid an astonishing 11 crores for Pandey in the year 2018.
Since then, he has been the linchpin of the Sunrisers Hyderabad batting order. Tragically, he struggled through a poor IPL 2021 season and was eventually dropped from the tournament’s starting XI.
He is unlikely to be captured by Hyderabad officials during the IPL 2022 season and will have returned to the bargaining tables before the conclusion of the calendar year. Manish Pandey has extensive experience as a domestic cricket team captain. He recently took over as captain of Karnataka’s native squad, and he has shown to be fairly successful.
Despite the absence of key members such as Mayank Agarwal and Devdutt Padikkal, the state of Karnataka advanced to the finals of the SMAT 2021 tournament. Manish Pandey is undeniably one of the best players in the Indian Premier League.
Pandey was off-color in the previous season.
Manish, on the other hand, lost his touch last season, and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have only utilised him in eight of their matches this season. Pandey, on the other hand, has 292 runs scored.
Manish Pandey’s name will almost probably be called at the IPL 2022 super auction as a result. The Karnataka team is led by captain Manish Pandey. He has been in command of the Karnataka squad for several years as captain.
The Karnataka squad, captained by Manish Pandey, has gone to the Syed Mushtaq Tournament finals, and Manish Pandey has scored the most runs for the state of Karnataka.
