IPL is the biggest cricket league in the world. Top players from around the world play in the IPL. However, there are some players who have struggled to secure permanent positions within the IPL. They shift from one team to another after a season or two due to various factors such as lack of form, injuries, or becoming surplus to a team’s needs. RCB and LSG are two of the IPL’s best teams, with numerous top-tier players having played for them.
Few players have represented both RCB and LSG. Here are 4 of them –
1. Manan Vohra
Manan Vohra’s exceptional performances during the 2012-13 domestic season led to him securing an IPL contract with the Kings XI Punjab, his hometown franchise. During the first two seasons, Vohra made a strong impression with his remarkable shot-making skills. However, his growth was hindered by not being a regular starter for a considerable period of time. In 2018, he had a brief stint with RCB before joining LSG in the previous season.
2. Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock is a highly dynamic opening batsman in international cricket, known for his ability to score rapid runs at the beginning of an innings. He possesses a strong technique and can accumulate runs quickly, making him an excellent fit for limited-overs cricket. In past seasons of the IPL, de Kock has been a dependable performer, and he will once again play a pivotal role for the Lucknow Super Giants in 2023. Additionally, he played for RCB in 2018.
3. KL Rahul
For the past four seasons, KL Rahul has consistently scored nearly 600 runs each year, earning him the reputation as the most dependable batsman. In 2020, he secured the Orange Cap, and in 2021, he was the second-highest run-scorer. Currently, Rahul serves as the captain of LSG and has previously played for RCB.
