Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) may decide not to hold AB de Villiers next season in the event that it implies keeping Glenn Maxwell. Former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir has said. Gambhir said that Maxwell, who was RCB’s top run scorer this season, addresses the future while the 37-year-old De Villiers doesn’t.
“Yes, because I think they will retain Glenn Maxwell since he is the future, and AB de Villiers is not,” said Gambhir when asked if he feels RCB may choose not to retain De Villiers this season.
De Villiers, the former South African captain, joined RCB in 2011 and has been a vital piece of the team from that point onward. He has scored 5162 runs in the IPL and kept a strike pace of 151.68 in 184 matches. While he scored 313 runs this season, the greater part of his runs came in the main leg and he has dealt with a most noteworthy score of 26 in the UAE. That likewise stamped one of two times where De Villiers figured out how to go beyond 20 in the UAE.
De Villiers resigned from international cricket in 2019 and has rarely played in T20 competitions apart from the IPL from that point onward.
Gambhir likewise said that RCB would need to hold Maxwell alongwith Virat Kohli and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Kohli ventured down as captain of the franchise this season, having assumed control over the reins in 2013 from Daniel Vettori.
