|Royal Challengers Bangalore|
IPL 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore
have reached the finals thrice but are yet to win the title. Virat Kohli would hope his team improves in comparison to the last two campaigns.
The Bangalore Royal Challengers under the leadership of Virat Kohli have always been considered one of the most glamorous teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL), but they have also labeled laggards due to the fact that they have never won the title despite reaching the final three times. One of five teams to play all 10 seasons – the Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Daredevils, and Kings XI Punjab – have yet to win the title. They came close three times, finishing second in 2009, 2011, and 2016, and also finishing third in two issues (2010 and 2015).
Virat Koli, A.B. de Villiers, Gurkirat Mann, Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kane Richardson, Dale Stein, Isuru Udana, Moin Ali, Pavan Degi, Shivam Morhris, Pawan Deshpande, Jahpande Shahbaz Ahamad
THREE INDIAN PLAYERS TO WATCH FOR
Virat Kohli –
The skipper of the Indian cricket team is undoubtedly one of the best batsmen in the world right now, no matter the format, and with a strong team this time around, he will surely aim to add the elusive Indian Premier League (IPL) title to his already composed list of achievements.
Yuzvendra Chahal –
Spinner has impressed experts and fans alike on the international stage, and when it comes to the IPL, he was RCB’s deadliest bowling option.
Shivam Dube –
A young wagon from Mumbai has been a stable player on the domestic track for the past two seasons, and with RCB paying an impressive Rs 5 crore for him last year, he will now look like a mainstay in the team.
THREE FOREIGN PLAYERS TO WATCH FOR
A.B. De Villiers –
De Villiers is one of the most aggressive batsmen in the world and can rip off any attack with his 360-degree kicks. He has been part of the franchise since 2010 and will once again bear the burden of leading his team to success.
Moin Ali –
Moin Ali has grown into a lucrative versatile player in his franchise, and with just four overseas slots, he makes a good addition to the squad given the conditions of the match.
Aaron Finch, the Australian captain with limited overs, is a great addition to the RCB team, and his presence should keep the average order. He will be a key figure, as he can leave after A.B. de Villiers and Virata Kohli
