IPL 2018 Royal Challengers Bangalore team squad & Matches Details

In the 10-year long history of the Indian Premier League, there has been nothing more frustrating than being an RCB fan. Almost every year, the franchise puts together the best possible squad on paper, yet the trophy has eluded them for a decade now. Once again, RCB is a strong contender in IPL 2018, with a new look and without-Chris Gayle squad. One thing that team management has probably done differently this year is that it has gone for utility and in-form players instead of the big names.

RCB Strong Batting Order:

On top, they have four good opening options in – Brendon McCullum, Quinton de Kock, Parthiv Patel and Manan Vohra which will force Virat Kohli to bat at 3 despite his impeccable success as an opener in the IPL. In an ideal world, one would want to open with McCullum and de Kock but with teams allowed to play only four overseas payers, one of them may have to sit out. At number 4, will be AB de Villiers followed by a young Sarfraz Khan or Mandeep Singh at 5.

RCB Lack of quality Indian fast-bowlers:

This has been a big problem with RCB that they have tried to solve for a few years but have failed with great consistency. In Chahal and Sundar, RCB has two quality Indian spinners but when you look at the fast-bowling unit, Umesh Yadav is the best they have who hasn’t played white ball cricket for India since November last year and also lost his place in the Test side.The next option is of Mohammed Siraj who was brilliant for SRH last year but has failed to replicate the success since then. Then, there are a couple of other domestic performers like Kulwant Khejroliya and Aniket Choudhary who do not have a record to back their abilities at this level.
