Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the richest IPL team, by means of their brand value and fanbase. Although the team didn’t make any successful journeys, made some decent performances in the IPL. The team failed in 3 final hurdles. In the year 2009,2011 and 2016. Also, made 2 playoff entries, in the year 2010 and 2015.Also, they made 2 playoff entries, in the year 2010 and 2015. Out of 3 Champions League t20 seasons played, they were the runners-up of 2011 and semifinalists of 2010 and 1 being a group stage elimination. The team is owned by United Spirits and plays their home matches at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium,Bangalore. Former team captain, Daniel Vettori is the head coach of Royal Challengers. 263 is the highest score in the IPL history, the record is held by the Royal Challengers. The Bangalore picks their team squad based on the star value. This is also a factor behind the large followers of the team. In their auction for the 2018 IPL season, they made some good bids on the players.
Indian Skipper Virat Kohli's leadership makes one of the best and tournament favorites. Under Kohli's captaincy, they made one final appearance. The Indian run machine can perform well in any batting order. He holds the record of highest run scored in a single edition of IPL. Brendon McCullum will be a perfect partner for him in the top order. Both players have the ability to blast in the initial overs. Middle order once again will be safe with DeVilliers and Sarfaraz Khan. These two were the key batsmen's in their previous seasons. Kohli and DeVilliers made some match-winning knocks in their previous seasons. Bangalore has a large warehouse of all rounders. Chris Woakes, Collingde Grandhomme, Correy Anderson, Moeen Ali can thrash any teams with their all-round performances. These players can contribute to bat and ball simultaneously. Their bowling departments are strong with spinners. Washington Sundar, who performed well in the Nidahas Trophy will confuse the opponent with his magical spells. The off-spinner is capable of bowling in powerplays, which is rare in IPL. After the debut in the last IPL season, he once again proved his skills in the Nidahas tri-series. Chahal will be a good partner for Sundar. In the previous seasons, Chahal was the trump card for the team. Daniel Vettori can give some advice for the spinners. Although the team has good batters and spinners, they lack experienced pacers in the team. Only Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee have the experience of bowling in death overs. Kulwant Khejroliya and Navdeep Sain were brilliant in their domestic matches this season. Their performance will be a key factor for RCB. Altogether RCB's strength lies in batting and all-round department. If they performed well, Kohli and team can hope for their maiden tournament victory.
