IPL 2022 Auction: 3 Teams Which Can Target Dwayne Bravo
#1 Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals is another team that can target Dwayne Bravo in IPL 2022 auction. Rajasthan Royals spent a hefty amount of Rs. 16.25 crore to buy all-rounder Chris Morris in IPL 2021 auction. However, after his continuous poor show with bat and ball in UAE leg, the team had to drop him in a few games.
Now, the franchise might also release him ahead of IPL 2022 auction. Rajasthan Royals will thus need an outstanding all-rounder to replace Chris Morris in the squad and Bravo will be a perfect option for the same.
#2 Sunrisers Hyderabad
Sunrisers Hyderabad came up with a poor show in IPL 2021, winning just 3 games out of 14. David Warner, who was the skipper of the team at the start, is all set to part ways from the franchise from the next season.
Now, to strengthen their overseas contingent in the squad, Sunrisers Hyderabad might target Dwayne Bravo in IPL 2022 auction. With his specialization in bowling death overs and hitting big shots down the order, Bravo is an efficient all-rounder for any team.
#3 Royal Challengers Bangalore
After the ouster of AB de Villiers, who announced retirement from all forms of cricket recently, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be short of an outstanding overseas player next season. Moreover, RCB comprises many strong batsmen and bowlers but do not have an exceptional all-rounder in the squad.
Dwayne Bravo is a successful player in the franchise T20 league winning many titles. RCB might go for Bravo in IPL 2022 auction to acquire a powerful overseas all-rounder in the squad.
