These foreign all-rounders will be retained!
Before the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, all the teams would have almost prepared the list of players they want to retain. Let’s have a look at those 2 foreign all-rounders whom their franchise would like to retain at any cost.
1. Kieron Pollard
Kieron Pollard has been an important part of Mumbai Indians. He was associated with this team only in the year 2010 and then he never looked back. Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah are believed to be retained in the 5-time champion team and in such a situation, if the franchise wants to retain any player in its camp, then it is West Indies’ strong all-rounder Pollard. He not only specializes in performing well, but can also take the responsibility of captaincy in Rohit’s absence.
2. Glenn Maxwell
The last season was very disappointing for Australia’s star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, due to which Punjab Kings released him. When he joined RCB in the year 2021, he made a ruckus in the field and rained fours and sixes everywhere. This year ‘Maxi’ scored 513 runs in 15 IPL matches at an average of 42.75 and strike rate of 144.10. Bangalore franchise would like to retain Virat Kohli and Yuzvendra Chahal in the team, so Maxwell will prove to be the third biggest contender to be retained here.
