The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had a disastrous IPL 2017, where they ended up at the bottom of the points table.
For the IPL 2018, RCB retained Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and in a shocking decision, Sarfaraz Khan, who had missed the 2017 season due to a knee injury. RCB surprisingly let go of their impactful opener Chris Gayle.
In the IPL 2018 auctions, RCB went all out in acquiring some very good talents and focused on buying all-rounders. They bought batsmen like Brendon McCullum, Manan Vohra, Mandeep Singh, and keepers like Quinton de Kock and Parthiv Patel.
Surprisingly, they bought a plethora of all-rounders like Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Colin de Grandhomme, Corey Anderson, Washington Sundar, and Pawan Negi. Their bowling side is filled with talents like Chahal, who was brought back using the RTM card, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Mohd Siraj, and Navdeep Saini amongst others.
With this, RCB has formed a brilliant squad, something they can depend on to win that elusive IPL title.
