Strength– Royal challengers look the most balanced team of the tournament. They have the best in the business in the likes of Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers, Shimron Hetymer and Heinrich Klassen. Virat Kohli has been the part of the RCB squad since inception and is the second leading IPL scorer of all time.
The team comprises of good all-rounders including Moeen Ali, Pawan Negi,Colin De Grandhomme and uncapped million dollar baby Shivam Dubey that gives edge to RCB over other franchises.
They have a quality world class bowling unit, which includes Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Yuzwendra Chahal and Mohammad Siraj.
Weakness– Royal Challengers Bangalore has invested 10 years to claim the title of IPL chokers. They choke under pressure and often suffer from inconsistency. Somehow they find unique reasons to lose the match, which is beyond logic. The only loop hole of the squad is lack of consistency and below par temperament.
Players to watch out for– IPL new discovery Shivam Dubey and master batsman Virat Kohli are the players to watch out for this IPL season. Shivam is yet to be tested, but everyone knows Virat is going through the purple patch, his phoenix force can demolish even the best in the business easily.
