Sanjay Manjrekar and Brad Hogg on IPL 2024
Brad Hogg on RCB Team: Mumbai Indians probably made the most noise on the day of the announcement of the IPL 2023 retention list. After Gujarat Titans retained their captain Hardik Pandya, the news came that the star player has been bought from Mumbai Indians and it was really true news. Hardik Pandya made a great comeback in the franchise where he made his name but with the entry of Hardik Pandya in Mumbai Indians for IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians had to free up some funds for the IPL 2024 auction. They let go of star players like Cameron Green and Jofra Archer.
It will now be interesting to see which players are on the target of Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024 auction.
"With Australia's recent win in the ODI World Cup, you will see a lot of Australian players, especially players like Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc. In terms of fast bowling, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc can be the two bowlers that Mumbai Indians will be looking for. So they would want another overseas option," Sanjay Manjrekar was quoted as saying by Times Now on Star Sports.
"They have received around Rs 17.5 crore. So I expect them to work Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc. Also, I think somewhere at the top is because Cameron Green used to bat at the top of the order and was an exciting option at number. 3 or Open. They would want an opener as well as an alternative.
Brad Hogg tells RCB special strategy to win IPL

Is he worth it? RCB, I am watching their line-up. I think it's a poor choice. Nothing against Green's talent. He was good for Mumbai Indians last year but if you look at RCB's list, they spend big on their batting line-up.
They don't have enough cash to spend on adequate quality bowlers. If you want to win the IPL, you need quality bowlers to defend the total score and set the game. I think it's a poor choice Brad Hogg Suggestion for RCB IPL 2024 Win, said in a video on his Instagram handle, "RCB and Green could have been suitable in any other club.
