Royal Challengers Bangalore, in an attempt to stem the underachievement, have released the most number of players this year (12). Of course, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers remain crucial to their chances, but they need to rely on them less.

Indeed, they have to build a balanced squad with plenty of good players. With a heavy purse available before going into the auction, let’s take a look who are the top five players they can go for:

5. Deepak Hooda

Yes, You saw that right, Deepak Hooda! Hooda can be a very good pick for RCB as he is known for batting aggressively down the order. Moreover, he can also chip in with few overs and wickets with his gentle off spinners.

Hooda, being an local player in the IPL, can give Virat Kohli freedom of playing any specialist overseas player while worrying less about the late hitting duties. In addition, Hooda is also a very good asset in the field.

Deepak Hooda could be given lots of freedom to fire at RCB

4. Pat Cummins

The recent form of Pat Cummins is absolutely amazing in all formats. He is taking wickets for fun and can be very good choice for RCB considering bowling is their weak suit. His performance against India in India earlier in 2019 was very good (he was the highest wicket taker from Australia).

The addition of Cummins can be a massive plus for RCB.

Pat Cummins has had a superb 2019.

3. Chris Morris

The South African all-rounder is a very good option for RCB as he can take wickets and has the ability to hit the ball long. He can be very valuable seeing the problems that RCB has had in past few seasons with finishing the innings on both the batting and bowling fronts.

Chris Morris is a wicket taker.

2. Chris Lynn

We all know how destructive Chris Lynn is. After released by KKR, along with 30-ball 91 very recently, he is a great choice for RCB at the top of the order. With Parthiv Patel capable of batting down the order, Lynn and Virat can go berserk in the powerplay.

Chris Lynn can be mighty dangerous at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

1. Chris Jordan

The biggest problem for RCB has been their bowling, especially at the death. They have tried many options, but have fallen short time and time again in the crunch overs.

With Mitchell Starc ruling himself out of the IPL Auction, Chris Jordan would be a great choice for RCB to pursue. His performance for the English team has been phenomenal and he can also hit the ball well, to go with his amazing fielding. He can be an ideal pick for RCB looking at their squad and previous year performances.
