5 top performers from Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 whom RCB can target for IPL 2023
The Karnataka State Cricket Association replaced the Karnataka Premier League with the Maharaja T20 Trophy. The first edition of the competition was recently concluded. In this article, we take a look at five top performers from Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 whom RCB can target for IPL 2023.
There has always been a complaint about RCB not hiring local talents. However, with many talents coming through with the Maharaja Trophy, there would be a lot of options for the Bengaluru-based franchise to choose from. A few performers also suit the requirements of the franchise. Therefore, some of them will be targeted at the IPL 2023 Auctions. We take a look at some of the names below:
1) Rohan Patil - Gulbarga Mystics
Matches: 12 || Runs: 397 || Strike Rate: 167
Rohan Patil is one of the top performers from Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 whom RCB can target for IPL 2023. The youngster was in top form and shone in a batting line-up that included the likes of Manish Pandey and Devdutt Padikkal. A left-handed opener, Rohan Patil has a wide range of shots and also impressed all with his intent. He is still young and can be a suitable investment by RCB.
2) Vidyadhar Patil - Mysuru Warriors
Matches: 12 || Wickets: 17 || Economy: 9.7
V Patil might have a high economy but the former India U19 cricketer did leave an impression with his ability to pick wickets. He finished as the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. RCB can pick the player and groom him for the future.
3) Rohan Kadam - Shivamogga Strikers
Matches: 7 || Runs: 290 || Strike Rate: 137
Rohan Kadam has been in good form for the past few seasons now. He did well in the recent Maharaja Trophy, as well. The player is quite experienced in domestic cricket and deserves an IPL contract. Hence, the southpaw is also one of the top performers from Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 whom RCB can target for IPL 2023.
4) Shubang Hegde - Mysuru Warriors
Matches: 12 || Wickets: 14 || Strike Rate: 5.62 || Runs: 111
The young all-rounder has been one of the interns at RCB for the last few seasons. He was not part of IPL 2022, though. Though his profile is similar to that of Shahbaz Ahmed, RCB can look to hire the player as a backup and an investment for the future.
5) Manoj Bhandage - Gulbarga Mystics
Matches: 11 || Runs: 162 || Strike Rate: 167 || Wickets:10
Manoj Bhandage is also one of the top performers from Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 whom RCB can target for IPL 2023. The player did well in both the batting and the bowling departments. Especially his big hitting at the death was impressive. Players of his profile are rare in India and hence, RCB can target the cricketer.
