It is known for all that IPL 2022 will be witnessing mega auctions ahead of the event and in this manner, the current lot of all the franchises wouldn’t be the same together.

After the loss in the same, Virat Kohli said, “I have tried my best to create a culture here where youngsters could come in and play with freedom and belief. It is something I have done with India as well. I have given my best. I don’t know how the response has been, but I have given 120% to this franchise every time, which is something I will now do as a player. I don’t see myself playing anywhere else. Loyalty matters more to me than worldly pleasures. I would be in the RCB till the last day I play in the IPL.”
