The group stage of the India Premier League is over and the Royal Challengers Bangalore have not made it to the play-offs. They have failed to make the most of their squad and managed to win just 6 of their 14 matches.

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were put under a lot of pressure this season and they delivered more often than not. However, the others were not up to the mark and could not help the team make it into the Top 4.

There are a lot of things RCB could have done differently this season, starting with the auction. There were so many mistakes made by them and so, here’s a look at 3 unsold players who could have helped them qualify for the play-offs this season:

#3 Joe Root

Joe Root is one of the best batsmen in the world right now. He’s been England’s best player in all three formats and could have helped RCB in a lot of matches. 

He’s calm at the crease and scores all the crucial runs his team requires. The 27-year-old could have been the one to help them win the games they were chasing in this season.

Brendon McCullum hasn’t been at his best this season and getting Root instead of him would have been a smart choice.
