RCB Team in IPL 2021: Complete Player list of Royal Challengers Bangalore after Auction

 

Royal Challengers Bangalore have been runners up thrice (2009, 2011, and 2016) but are yet to win an IPL title. That’s a pretty average performance for a star-studded team, featuring the likes of Kohli and De Villiers. We are sure they are looking to change the record and be the latest IPL season. Interestingly, a record for the lowest total (49) as well as the highest total (263) belongs to RCB.

Players to watch out for

Royal Challengers Bangalore team 2021 players list features some real match winners.  

● Virat Kohli

The most consistent batsman currently on the circuit, Kohli can take the game away with his aggression and delightful stroke play. He has to do the bulk of scoring for his team to win.  

● AB De Villiers

Mr. 360 degree, AB has been a pillar of strength for RCB for a while. Though retired from international cricket, he can still take bowlers to the cleaners and win games single-handedly. 

● Glen Maxwell

The new addition to the outfit, Maxwell would boost the middle order with his clean hitting abilities. His role would be to capitalize on the start-finish matches. 

Well, that is the line up for now! We all look forward to the team setting some other records tihs season.
