IPL Auction: 5 players capable of causing a KKR-RCB bidding war
The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) share a rivalry which dates back to the opening day of the first edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). New Zealand opener Brendon McCullum smashed an unbeaten 158 with the latter bowled out for just 82, setting the stage for an intense relationship. One is certainly guaranteed a nail-biting finish when these two franchises face off, as evident from the clash at the Chinnaswamy stadium last season where one could hardly predict a winner till the last ball.
Both teams have indicated a desire to invest in attacking players capable of changing the game single-handedly over the years, which could very well result in a bidding war between them at the upcoming auction. Will we witness another nail-biting intense clash off the field at the auction table? One can only wait and watch.
