One of the most exciting aspect of the Indian premier league is the auction that happens prior to the tournament where the high octane bidding for the players takes place. The mega auction is the most anticipated event that all the franchise management and the cricket fans will be eagerly waiting for.
The mega auction is scheduled to take place next year where the teams have to release chunk of their squad as they cannot retain more than 4 players. Hence there will be some big names going under the hammer and the franchise would be hoping to build a strong core for their future.
Even though the chance of AB de Villiers being released by the RCB for the mega auction is very less, there is always some unpredictability about IPL and RCB franchise as they released the peak KL Rahul before the mega auction last time around.
A fan asked a question in a recent chat session to Mr.360 whether he would like to represent Chennai Super Kings and play under MS Dhoni for which AB de Villiers answered that he doesn’t get to choose anything and also said that he loves to play for RCB for his entire life.
Because of the system in the IPL, I’ve never had a choice. I have played with Delhi Daredevils, and then they released me after the first three seasons, after which Bangalore picked me up. The entire first part of my IPL career was out of my hands
The former South African captain also hinted that he won’t play for any other franchise other than RCB and also said that he loves the battle with CSK whenever played against them.
Unfortunately, I don’t think the CSK thing is going to happen. It’s good to play against them, though. It’s always a great battle
