IPL 2021 is in its last stage and the season has its fair share of ups and downs.
Facing the initial matches in the country, the tournament had to shift to UAE because of the situation with Covid-19 in the country during the respective time. The change in the situation did not seem to do very well for the batsman and a lot of teams and their batsman had to suffer on a huge account. It included teams such as Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
With two new teams joining the tournament with the mega auction coming in the coming month things might take different turns especially when the game returns to India in the next season.
Amidst all of this, there are reports that the captain of Punjab Kings, KL Rahul has secretively requested the franchise to release him ahead of the mega auction. KL Rahul is currently the orange cap holder with the leading run scorer in the present ongoing IPL season. He is also part of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021.
The reports state that KL Rahul is interested in joining Royal Challengers Bangalore as a team and the franchise is also interested in him as they are looking for a new captain and a fiery batsman and KL Rahul seems to fit the bill. Along with that, KL Rahul is a Bangalorean. His family shifted there many decades ago and this move would be beneficial for both him and the team making it a hot topic of discussion for all.
