Rachin Ravindra has made a significant impact on the 2023 World Cup, not only emerging as the highest scorer among debutants but also leading the overall run-scoring charts in the tournament.

At the age of 23, Rachin is challenging seasoned players like Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli, David Warner, and Rohit Sharma.

As of now, Rachin is at the top of the run-scoring charts in the World Cup 2023 with 565 runs in 9 innings, maintaining an impressive average of 70. He has achieved 3 centuries and 2 fifties, along with contributing 5 wickets, playing a crucial role in New Zealand’s journey to the semi-finals.

Rachin’s outstanding performances in the World Cup have earned him a lucrative contract in the upcoming IPL 2024 auction.

The IPL 2024 auction is scheduled for December 19 in Dubai, marking the first time it will be held outside India. The franchise purse has been increased from INR 95 crore to INR 100 crore.

RCB is expected to release some players and is likely to place a competitive bid for Rachin Ravindra. Here are three reasons why RCB might aggressively pursue him:

  1. Growing Fanbase in Bangalore: Rachin has garnered substantial support from the Bangalore crowd during his debut World Cup, especially at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. With his father originally from Bangalore and a strong local connection, the fans have already embraced him. The chants of “Rachin Rachin” during his century against Pakistan and his subsequent performance against Sri Lanka have solidified his popularity. Rachin himself expressed his fondness for the Chinnaswamy Stadium and looks forward to playing more cricket there.
  2. Potential Future Superstar: With established players like Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Glenn Maxwell, and Faf du Plessis approaching the twilight of their careers, RCB is keen on investing in a potential future superstar. Rachin Ravindra, with his promising talent and growing reputation, fits the bill as a player who can carry the franchise forward.
  3. Replacement for Glenn Maxwell: As an all-rounder, Rachin has performed exceptionally well in the World Cup. Given that Glenn Maxwell, at 35, has limited time left in top-flight cricket, RCB is looking for a spin-bowling all-rounder as a replacement. Rachin Ravindra, with his skills, offers the perfect fit. His temperament, quality, and ability to provide balance to the XI make him a suitable candidate for this role.
  4. Excellent Batsman Against Spin: Rachin’s prowess in facing and dominating spinners is evident in his remarkable performance in the World Cup 2023. He boasts an impressive average of 141 against spinners and has been dismissed only twice in 9 innings. His ability to tackle spin effectively positions him as a valuable asset for any IPL franchise.
