IPL 2020: Mike Hesson to unveil the final list of released and retained RCB players

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had a forgettable outing at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 despite having star-studded players in the line-up.

Virat Kohli-led RCB managed to win only five matches out of the 14 they played in the season. They lost their first six matches in a row. And the only highlights of the season for them was winning three consecutive games.

For the next season, RCB have revamped their coaching and support staff. They parted ways with Gary Kirsten and Ashish Nehra and brought in Simon Katich as head coach, Mithun Minhas as an assistant coach, and re-hired Basu Shanker as strength and conditioning coach apart from becoming the first IPL franchise to hire a woman in Navnita Gautam as the Sports massage therapist.

Mike Hesson confirms the date

RCB’s director of cricket operations Mike Hesson on Friday confirmed that the list of retained and released players would be finalized on November 15. The Bangalore team has been one of the most underperforming ones given that despite the considerable star power, they have not won the tournament even once.

The players’ auction for IPL 2020 will take place on December 19 in Kolkata.
