IPL 2020: Players RCB may buy from auction

Bengaluru, November 19: Royal Challengers Bengaluru have released 12 players ahead of next month's IPL 2020 auction. It may be indicative of the RCB mindset that under new coach Mike Hesson they might be looking for at least a minor overhaul while on the lookout for their maiden IPL title.

Virat Kohli should be in charge with the likes of AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali rallying around him. MyKhel looks at the possible strategies and buys of RCB from the auction.
