Royal Challengers Bangalore is the team that has ever won an IPL, but has played three IPL finals. In 2009,2011 and 2016 RCB were runner-ups.
Lot of Big players has played for RCB till IPL 2019.Big names like Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, Yuvraj Singh, KL Rahul, AB de Villiers has played with Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Every season, Royal Challengers Bangalore cannot perform according to expectations. This time, RCB will be without their best overseas player AB de Villiers. Royal Challengers Bangalore have bought Faf du Plessis in auction, who will be their skipper this season.
So, here is what is the Best Playing XI of Royal Challengers Bangalore:-
Faf du Plessis(c) and Anuj Rawat
Very smart move by RCB in IPL Auction, all-rounder batsman and captain, who could be a replacement for AB de Villiers. One of the consistent batsman in IPL History. Du Plessis has played 7 seasons for CSK and have scored 2,935 runs at an average of 35.
Last season , he was 2nd highest run-scorer in season after opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad.
Virat Kohli is another opening choice for Royal Challengers Bangalore, but Anuj Rawat will be fine with Faf. RCB management will except good start from Anuj Rawat in the powerplay overs.
Virat Kohli is highest run-scorer in IPL History. He is only player to play all seasons for a single team. This year Virat will not be leading side after 8-9 years. So, he could play more freely.
Virat is only cricketer to score 6,000+ runs in IPL.
Glenn Maxwell was retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore after his impressive show last year. This year there will be more responsibility on Maxwell, as RCB is without AB de Villiers. Maxwell scored 513 runs last year at an average of 42.75 and his strike rate was 144.10.
