Ever since the backyard matches with my older brothers, I have played the game with pure enjoyment and unbridled enthusiasm. 

Now, at the age of 37, that flame no longer burns so brightly.

Last, I am aware that nothing would have been possible without the sacrifices made by my family - my parents, my brothers, my wife Danielle and my children. I look forward to the next chapter of our lives when I can truly put them first.

The former South Africa captain and batting mainstay had retired from international cricket in 2018.

I would like to thank every teammate, every opponent, every coach, every physio and every staff member who has travelled the same path, and I am humbled by the support I have received in South Africa, in India, wherever I have played.

"Cricket has been exceptionally kind to me. Whether playing for the Titans, or the Proteas, or RCB, or around the world, the game has given me unimagined experiences and opportunities, and I will always be grateful.

"That's the reality I must accept - and, even if it may seem sudden, that is why I am making this announcement today. I've had my time," de Villiers added.

Since starting his association with RCB in 2011, he has enjoyed 11 fruitful seasons with the franchise and was its batting mainstay alongside Virat Kohli.
De Villiers has played 156 matches for RCB and scored 4,491 runs. 

He is the second all-time leading run scorer behind Kohli and holds the second and third-highest individual run total in RCB history with 133 not out against Mumbai Indians (in 2015) and 129 not out against Gujarat Lions (in 2016).

Speaking about his association with the Indian club, de Villiers said, "I have had a long and fruitful time playing for RCB. Eleven years have just whizzed by and leaving the boys is extremely bittersweet.

"Of course, arriving at this decision took a lot of time, but after a lot of contemplation, I've decided to hang up my boots and spend quality time with my family. I would like to thank the RCB management, my friend Virat Kohli, teammates, coaches, support staff, fans, and the entire RCB family for showing faith and supporting me all through these years.

"It has been a memorable journey with RCB. Have so many memories on the personal front to cherish for the lifetime. RCB will always be very close to me and my family and will continue to support this amazing team. I am a RCBian forever."

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Virat Kohli 

As I said, I don’t see myself playing anywhere else. To me loyalty matters more than other things which, from the worldly point of view, seem more important. This franchise has believed in me and my commitment is to this franchise till the last day I play the IPL - ''Not the result we wanted but I am so proud of the character shown by the boys throughout the tournament. A disappointing end but we can hold our heads high. Thank you to all the fans, management & the support staff for your constant support''

According to the new rules, a group will be allowed to keep solely three gamers and they can be two Indian gamers and one distant places or one Indian participant and two remote places players. Apart from these three retained players, all the final ones will be offered from the Auction table. Although we can't verify the above standards until any reliable announcement via BCCI. If the above speculations are authentic and the groups are allowed to keep solely three players, then it would be a very hard name for administration to pick out the quality three gamers to retain.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 

Has had notable ultimate two seasons of IPL. The group made it to the playoffs of back-to-back seasons of 2020 and 2021. They have usually struggled in keeping a strong eleven gamers in the squad however these previous years a few key gamers have given steadiness to the team. Therefore this IPL 2022 mega public sale is extraordinarily essential for the team. It will be interesting to see which all huge names will be left out. The group administration will strive to construct a new and aggressive squad below a new captain. In this article, we have referred to these three gamers that would possibly be retained through Royal Challengers Bangalore at some point of IPL 2022 mega auction. It will be thrilling to see the IPL 2022 RCB retained players. 

AB De Villiers

AB de Villiers has been a valuable asset for the time. He has single-handedly won matches for the team numerous times. During his IPL career, he has scored in total 5162 runs with 3 centuries on his name with a strike rate of 151.68. AB and Virat have had five 100+ partnerships for RCB and two 200+ partnerships.

ipl 2022 rcb retained players – AB De Villiers

Yuzvendra Chahal ,Mohammad Siraj, Devdutt Padikkal, and Glenn Maxwell have all contributed efficiently to the team as a pacer, opener, and finisher for the team respectively, which leaves the team in quite a dilemma on who to retain. But Yuzi Chahal has been the go-to bowler for the captain, a trump card in breaking partnerships in middle overs. In 2020 Chahal played a crucial role in helping the franchise make the playoffs. He picked 21 wickets in 15 matches. In 114 matches he has taken 139 wickets with an economy of 7.59. In leagues like IPL, leg spinners can play a crucial role in turning the result of the match. Although his form was a little up and down but he has always bounced back and showed his capability in the limited-overs. Just like Kohli and De Villiers, Chahal is also a loyal and long servant of the RCB.

IPL 2022 Mega Auction: What is the retention card in Indian Premier League

No comments


A mega auction is set to happen before IPL 2022 (Image Courtesy:

Indian Premier League 2022 is one of the most anticipated tournaments in cricket history. The 2021 edition of the IPL culminated recently with the Chennai Super Kings winning their fourth trophy.

Unfortunately, the Super Kings will not be able to retain their entire squad for IPL 2022 because of the mega auction rules. The BCCI will soon declare the retention policy for IPL 2022, but it is likely that teams will only be able to retain a maximum of four players.

During previous auctions, the Indian Premier League  Governing Council allowed franchises to buy their released players back at auction by matching the final bid. Known as the RTM card, the retention card is very useful for all IPL franchises.

For example, Delhi Capitals signed Kieron Pollard for ₹5.40 crore at IPL Auction 2018. However, before confirming the sale, the auctioneer asked Pollard's former team Mumbai Indians if they were interested in retaining him via RTM. The Mukesh Ambani-owned franchise used their RTM card and retained Pollard for ₹5.40 crore.

Players like Krunal Pandya (Mumbai Indians), Yuzvendra Chahal (Royal Challengers Bangalore), Dwayne Bravo (Chennai Super Kings) and Faf du Plessis (Chennai Super Kings) were also retained by the RTM card.

BCCI allow the teams to use retention card at IPL 2022 Auction?

As mentioned ahead, the BCCI has not declared the retention policy for the 2022 IPL Auction. Hence, it is not known if the retention card will be a part of the mega auction.

If the board gives the green signal for the RTM card, then teams will likely get an opportunity to pick one or two players from their previous squad by using that card.

Bcci web

The BCCI has stated that Virat Kohli's choice to step down as the T20I captain after the upcoming World Cup was once a collective choice and section of the "roadmap" it has charted for the management for the senior men's team. However, numerous questions stay unanswered. Evaglogs tries to reply some sizeable ones based totally on handy information.

Was it Kohli's own decision or did BCCI play a role?

The BCCI media launch suggests the board has been in dialog with Kohli involving this for a whilst now, and that it is the BCCI that "announced" Kohli's choice to step down as T20I captain. In proper fact, that launch got here extra than an hour after Kohli had tweeted out his statement, in which he advised it used to be a choice he made in session with teach Ravi Shastri and inheritor obvious Rohit Sharma.

That board secretary Jay Shah and treasurer Arun Dhumal denied reviews that Kohli used to be going to step down as white-ball captain after the T20 World Cup may advise that the timing of Kohli's announcement may have caught them unawares.

What is true, though, is it was once now not an in a single day decision.Evaglogs has learnt that Kohli has been having giant discussions with Shastri and Rohit, with talks intensifying after India's defeat in opposition to New Zealand in the World Test Championship last in June. 

Why has Kohli decided to give up captaincy of just T20Is?

Kohli referred to the "immense workload" taking part in the three codecs as the identifying factor. The instant query majority on the outdoor are asking is: do India play too an awful lot T20Is? Since the begin of 2017, when Kohli changed MS Dhoni as the T20I captain, India have performed sixty seven matches, the joint-most alongside with Pakistan in that format. Kohli has featured in forty five of those; in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, Kohli performed 10 fits each. So a ways this year, India have performed simply 5 T20Is. In the equal period, between 2017 and this IPL, Kohli has performed 60 out of sixty three fits for Royal Challengers Bangalore the place he is the captain as well. Also, the IPL conveyor belt is continuous for genuinely two months each and every yr the place the workload will become a better speaking point.

After the T20 World Cup, India are scheduled to play at least 21 T20Is as per the ICC's FTP. That does now not consist of the 2022 T20 World Cup, scheduled for October-November subsequent yr in Australia. It is completely viable Kohli does now not favor to be saddled with the quantity of decision-making worried in planning earlier than and at some stage in a T20I. While he stays a key batter in India's pinnacle order, Kohli possibly needs to launch himself from the pressures of every day planning. And he believes in Rohit, India have a geared up chief to exchange him in T20Is.

The strange-bedfellows nature of that association mirrors the settlement that added it about, an alliance amongst eight political events from a various array of ideologies, from the left to the a ways proper  amongst them the first unbiased Arab team to be part of a governing political alliance in Israeli history.

Nevertheless, after two years of a political deadlock that has left Israel barring a secure authorities or a nation budget, it was once movement. And it signaled a turning factor for Mr. Netanyahu, a chief who has described current Israel greater than any other, turning it tough to the right. He has been in workplace for 12 consecutive years and in all has held energy for 15.

Mr. Bennett, a former ally of Mr. Netanyahu’s, is broadly seen as even in addition to the right. But he stated he was once throwing in his lot with his ideological opposites as a final lodge to give up Israel’s political disaster and strive to stop it from “dismantling the partitions of the country, brick through brick, till our residence falls in on us.

The new government, if it is sworn in, will face different big challenges. As nicely as Iran and the moribund peace technique with the Palestinians, it additionally faces a battle crimes probe through the International Criminal Court and financial recuperation following the coronavirus pandemic.
