3 teams that can target Rachin Ravindra in IPL 2024 Player auction

Rachin Ravindra emerged as the brightest prospect in the recently concluded ODI World Cup. His batting exploits were able to attract bids from multiple IPL franchises in the upcoming IPL mini-auction. In this article, we will take a look at 3 teams that can target the young Kiwi all-rounder Rachin Ravindra in the player auction. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore

In the past few seasons, Royal Challengers Bangalore has been over-reliant on Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell in the batting order. This overreliance has not worked in its favor and the franchise would like to include an in-form young batter like Rachin Ravindra who can reduce the burden of run-scoring from the trio of Kohli, Du Plessis, and Maxwell. Rachin Ravindra’s spin bowling ability is also an added positive for any franchise that aims to include him in its squad. 

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals is another franchise that can go for Rachin Ravindra in the auction. Rajasthan can use Ravindra as a floater in the batting order. Sanju Samson and Rachin Ravindra can switch their positions to keep that left-right combination going in the middle. Rachin Ravindra has a great temperament for a youngster and he can make his mark in the batting order with Sanju Samson. In circumstances where an opener is unfit to play then Rachin Ravindra can also play as an opener and this flexibility is a big asset to have. 

Lucknow Super Giants

On a pitch like Lucknow, a spin bowling top-order batter would be nothing less than a treasure. In a batting order consisting of KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock, Rachin Ravindra would be a fantastic addition. Ravindra is a perfect option to play at the No.3 position because of the sense of responsibility with which he places his innings. In times of crisis, he can anchor the innings and if a foundation has already been laid then Ravindra can exploit that to post a humongous total on the board or chase down the same.
