Janson Holder captain for RCB in IPL 2022


As Virat Kohli stepped down as captain after the conclusion of the last season, Royal Challengers Bangalore are yet to announce his successor. IPL mega auction will be held on 12 and 13 February. In recent development former Indian cricketer wants Jason holder captain for RCB in IPL 2022.

Akash Chopra has strongly asserted that Royal Challengers Bangalore would buy this player from the West Indies, despite the auction of players like Shreyas Iyer Shikhar Dhawan. Akash Chopra has said that it would be best if Royal Challengers Bangalore team bought West Indies-based Jason Holder for the position of captain.

Jason Holder, who has previously performed well for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team, said it was a good option to lead the Bangalore team as an all-rounder. RCB have retained only 3 players, including captain Virat Kohli (Rs 15 crore), Glenn Maxwell (Rs 11 crore) and Mohammed Siraj (Rs 7 crore).

While the Australian all-rounder can be considered for the captaincy role, considering his success as Melbourne Stars’ skipper in the Big Bash League, it remains to be seen whether RCB take that route. Jason Holder was released by the 2016 winners Sunrisers Hyderabad months before the IPL 2022 auctions. Apart from RCB, two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders and 2014 finalists Punjab Kings are yet to announce their captains as well.

Meanwhile, a total of 1214 players have registered for the mega Auction; the deadline for which was set at January 21. The list includes 270 capped players, 903 Uncapped, and 41 associate nation players. Apart from 896 Indian players, a total of 318 overseas players have registered in the Auction.

Australia, South Africa, and West indies have the greatest number of players in the auction list. There is a total of 59 players from Australia, 48 players from South Africa, and 41 players from West Indies. Apart from these three, there are 36, 30 and 29 players from Sri Lanka, England and New Zealand respectively. While we are excited to see a lot of overseas players, we also have a lot of absentees.
