New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli is keen to get veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh in his squad, in the upcoming IPL auctions, according to reports.
According to a report published in a leading English daily, Kohli has already spoken to the left-hander and is keen to get him in the squad. Meanwhile, a few other franchises are also keen to buy Yuvraj in the IPL auctions to be held on February 12, 13.
RCB were the first team to announce the list of their retained players. The team management retained their three key players – Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. While RCB have always managed to score big runs, their bowling attack hasn`t been up to the mark, and the team management would also want to purchase some good bowlers for the seventh edition of the tournament.
Despite his poor form of late, Yuvraj Singh is still a world class T20 player. For the last three years, he was associated with the Kings XI Punjab, and surprisingly, he could not prove himself on a consistent basis.
