The players’ auction for the upcoming season for the Indian Premier League will be held in Kochi on December 23.

On the other hand, if we look at the team of Royal Challengers Bangalore, then it is included in the most balanced team. There are many international level bowlers in the team of RBI. Apart from that, there is a lot of smoky batsmen. But as a wicketkeeper, he has only experienced Dinesh Karthik. Aging is the problem for Karthik and the team. In such a situation, it is possible that he will also be given rest in some matches. In this situation who is his back-up in the team. Let’s talk about this.
Anuj Rawat is the back-up

In such a situation, the team can bet on some quality spinners at the time of auction. Apart from this, the franchisee may think of including a wicketkeeper. By the way, RCB is dependent on Dinesh Karthik for wicketkeeping. Last season, apart from wicketkeeping, Karthik also rocked in batting. If Karthik is rested in some matches due to his age, then Anuj Rawat is in the team as his back-up. In IPL 2023, he played some matches for RCB. Belonging to Uttarakhand, Anuj is a wicket-keeper batsman.
Dinesh Karthik proved to be a boon for RCB in the last season of IPL. Apart from excellent wicketkeeping, he also performed strongly with the bat. In IPL 2022, Karthik single-handedly won many matches to RCB. Playing the role of a finisher, he scored 330 runs in 16 matches. During this, his highest score was 66 not out.
