ipl prediction : Kohli and Maxwell are certain to stay at RCB, but the captaincy is still up in the air.

Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell are anticipated to stay with Royal Challengers Bangalore for the next three Indian Premier League seasons. Each squad is permitted to keep a maximum of four players under BCCI regulations. RCB is yet to name its captain, according to reports. Kohli said during the previous IPL season that he would not be captaining the team but would continue to play for the Bangalore franchise. “I’ve told the management that I can’t see playing for any other team than RCB,” he had stated. Following Kohli’s announcement that he will stand aside as India’s T20I captain, this happened. Maxwell led the RCB in runs scored with 498 in 14 games.

Meanwhile, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings’ long-serving captain, is expected to be retained. Apart from Dhoni, the team is expected to keep all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, both of whom were instrumental in CSK’s victory in the 2021 IPL. Moeen Ali, the England all-rounder, is also in negotiations to join CSK. CSK believe Ali might be a useful performer on the slow, turning Chennai track, especially now that BCCI secretary Jay Shah has declared that the next IPL season will be held in India.

CSK will have left-arm medium-pacer Sam Curran as their fourth retained player if Ali does not agree to stay. The franchises must submit their retained player lists by November 30, and the IPL’s blockbuster auction will take place next month. It’s hardly surprising that CSK will keep Dhoni, given the brand value he gives to the franchise. Dhoni announced at a recent CSK function that his final T20 game will be in Chennai, putting IPL retirement rumours to rest. “My cricket has always been planned.” Ranchi hosted my last ODI in India. My final T20 will, hopefully, be in Chennai. “I don’t know if it’ll be next year or in five years,” Dhoni had stated. Suresh Raina is also unlikely to be retained by CSK for the first time. The former India batsman has been out of form and has missed out on vital IPL knockout games.
