Big names in RCB team but still could not win title even once
Virat Kohli’s captaincy team RCB has not been able to win a single title in the last 12 tries so far. Although RCB had reached the finals thrice in 2009, 2011 and 2016 and all three times, the title was seen as a strong contender. Talking about the last three seasons, the team had to struggle a lot in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and the team was ranked low. There are many big names in the team and this time the fans hope that the 13th season of IPL will prove to be lucky for Virat Kohli. The team will land the title with the intention of ending the drought.
Expectations from Abby and Virat
The RCB team has two explosive batsmen in the world in the form of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. Kohli is the highest run-scorer in this league, while de Villiers who turn the match in the moment, has the ability to score runs anywhere, anytime and anytime.
A bowler like Dale Steyn is strong
Royal Challengers Bangalore team has paceman like Dale Steyn and spinner like Yuzvendra Chahal who can decide the direction of the match in their four overs. Where Steyn leads the team’s fast bowling attack, Chahal will be on the spin department.
There is a great all-rounder in the team
Great all-rounders like Chris Morris, Moin Ali and Shivam Dubey. Moin, apart from scoring fast runs in the top order, also knows how to trap the batsmen in his spin, while Shivam’s arms have plenty of power to make big shots. Morris is bought by the franchise for Rs 10 crore this time. Their value can be understood by their price.
These are the 3 weaknesses of the team
The biggest weakness of RCB is not being able to pick the team combined and deciding the right batting order. The team is yet to get a permanent opening pair.
The team seems to be completely dependent on Virat and AB de Villiers. The future of the team rests on the performance of these two. Many other big hitters appear on paper but their hitting on the field is not seen.
The bowling department is never able to perform in unison. RCB’s bowlers are notorious for looting runs. Bollers need to learn bowling that stops the flow of runs.
This is the record of RCB in IPL
The Royal Challengers Bangalore team has played 181 matches so far, winning 83 and losing 92. At the same time, 5 matches have been tied so far and 1 could not yield any result. This team has a batting strike rate of 159.21 in the last four overs, which is the best strike rate of Death Overs in IPL history.
