Sachin joined the RCB camp during IPL 2021 only,as he was picked by the Bangalore outing at a base price of INR 20 lakh during the IPL 2021 auction hosted in Chennai on February 18. The left-hander warmed the bench for all the games RCB played before the league was suspended. However, it was an enriching experience for the 32-year-old as he shared the dressing room with some of the legends of the game including Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell.
As far as the performance of RCB is concerned, they were enjoying a decent ride in the league. RCB won as many as five matches from seven league games and were positioned at third place on the points table.
