It won't be wrong to address Royal Challengers Bangalore to be the most unluckiest team in IPL History with the presence of some great national and international players on their side. Virat Kohli has been consistently performing well for his team and single handedly led his team to be the tough competitors in IPL. With support of ABde Villiers, the "Batting Monster" we expect him to hit the big sixes all over the park again, his role has been vital for the RCB.
RCB has bought the new emerging talent from West Indies Shimron Hetmyer who has scored four ODI centuries in just 24 matches, with his great batting ability the debutant will be another player to watchoutfor . RCB has hunt another new talent Shivam Dube who has been bought for a huge amount of 5 crores. Marcus Stoinis who was playing for Kings XI Punjab last year has now joined the RCB squad. The Aussie is the best all rounder for the team and with his great bowling and batting abilites he can escalate the team's performance.
Umesh Yadav, their bowling spearhead has performed very well last year by picking wickets in his first spell, we expect him to continue the same bowling attack. With the support of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee and others bowling side looks decent.
In this 12th edition of Indian Premier Leagur, Royal Challengers Bangalore are going to play their first match against Chennai Super Kings on 23rd March in M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. Even though reaching the finals three times, RCB always proved to be unfortunate to lift the trophy. Can they manage to win the title title this year?
