After this decision by Dale Steyn, there was an attempt to bring him to the coaching staff of the team but he postponed it saying that I have not retired yet. However he has been included in the draft of foreign players in Pakistan Premier League.
After Dale Steyn leaves, Royal Challengers Bangalore will have to replace him with a new player. However, the list of Retain and Release players will also start coming. Dale Steyn was quite experienced and in the last IPL, he got a chance to play only 3 matches. He participated in a total of 97 matches in the IPL. On Twitter, he had announced not to play the IPL season. In this situation RCB will have to take a new player, three of them are mentioned here.
Mitchell Starc refused to play in the last IPL but this time he has a chance to return. He has also played for RCB before. Having IPL experience, he can be included in RCB’s team. So far in the IPL, he has taken 34 wickets, playing 27 matches. Virat Kohli and team management may consider joining them.
It is most likely to bring this player to RCB’s team. The Kiwi player took 11 wickets while bowling deadly in New Zealand’s second Test match against Pakistan. RCB will make every effort to bring this shining bowler to the team as soon as he comes into international cricket.
Kane Richardson, who did not play last year, has played a few matches in the IPL for RCB before. Being an old player, he can be given importance. Kane Richardson has 18 wickets in the IPL. This left-arm fast bowler has both speed and mix. In such a situation, RCB’s team would like Kane Richardson to be once again part of the team in the 14th season of IPL.
