The Royal Challengers Bangalore had a good mega auction as they got an opportunity to steal some good players at a cheap rate. Though they released their key players like Devdutt Padikkal and Yuzvendra Chahal, they have added Josh Hazlewood, Faf du Plessis to their squad.
The management has decided to retain Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and their key pacer Mohammed Siraj. As the franchise would look to clinch their first IPL title, we will take a look at their strongest XI.
4Openers – Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli
Faf du Plessis, who is a new recruiter, will be having an important role for RCB this year. His biggest strength is to score runs under pressure and the knockout games. So, the franchise will be having a lot of expectations from du Plessis.
Virat Kohli is arguably the best batter in the history of the cash-rich T20 league. He will be a first-choice partner for Faf as he likes to maximize the powerplay overs. We can expect him to score more as he has no more captaincy pressure.
