Royal Challengers Bangalore Team 2020 for IPL UAE
The last team on the list of our review series is the team which creates a lot of buzz both on and off the field. We are reviewing the Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB is A team which has the most loyal fans. RCB has the two biggest superstars of this generation AB DeVilliers and Virat Kohli in the team.
In the IPL history, RCB has played three finals and two times they have qualified for the play-offs but could never manage to lift the trophy.
RCB historically has been a batting dominant side as they are this time.
Will they be able to break the jinx this time ?
Batsman : Virat Kohli (C), Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Gurkeerat Singh Maan
All Rounder : Moeen Ali, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Ishuru Udana, Shivam Dubey, Pavan Deshpande, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pawan Negi
Wicket-Keeper : AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Josh Phillippe
Bowlers : Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal, Adam Zampa, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj
RCB has the most dangerous batting line-up with Aaron Finch and Parthiv Patel/Devdutt Padikkal at the top of the order.
Virat and AB de Villiers at number three and four.
At five and six either Gurkeerat or Shivam Dubey can play and at seven Moeen Ali or Chris Morris can be included.
At eight they have useful Washington Sundar.
In bowling department Yuzi Chahal, Dale Steyn along with Umesh Yadav will take the responsibility of the bowling unit.
The recurring problem that RCB always had and perhaps always is their bowling specially at the death.
However, time they have plenty of spinners and spinning all rounder which may work in their advantage in UAE conditions.
But they lack in pace bowling options and fitness of Steyn is also an issue for them.
One more issue with RCB is lack of experienced finishers in lower order.
If bowlers of RCB manages to do well in this season, you never know we might see a new champion this time.
