Coronavirus: ICC to hold board meeting via conference call13 March 2020 / SkyBook365 Cricket Editors Team
Full meetings rescheduled to early May due to coronavirus.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has been one team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) which shows a lot of promise and has an abundance of talent but flatters to deceive every year in the cash-rich league. Be it their skipper Virat Kohli, match-winner AB de Villiers or leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, RCB have a number of match winners.RCB had an underwhelming campaign in IPL 2019. With only 5 wins from 14 games, they finished the league stage as the bottom-placed team in the points table. England all-rounder Moeen Ali, who is one of the two foreign players retained for next season, believes RCB needs to have a good start in IPL 2020 in order to make it to the playoffs and win the title. He also believes that the team cannot expect Kohli and de Villiers to win games for them and so other players need to step up. The players, who have been retained, will not be a part of the auction, slated to be held in Kolkata on December 19.
Former India batsman Yuvraj Singh on Monday said that Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) decision to release Australian opening batsman Chris Lynn was a "bad call" and joked that he might drop the Indian Premier League (IPL) team's co-owner Shah Rukh Khan a message on that. Yuvraj said, "He is someone I have seen in the IPL. He has given some great starts to KKR. I really don't understand why they have not retained him. I think it is a bad call, must send SRK a message on that." The 37-year-old, who announced his retirement from international cricket before the 2019 World Cup, said that he trains hard to remain fit also he is happy playing leagues outside India and has not yet decided whether he wants to get into coaching IPL teams. He added, "There are a lot of leagues coming up in the next two to three years, so I am looking forward to playing a few of them. It's good for me that I play for about two or three months, instead of playing the whole year.”
