Key players :
RCB - Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Shane Watson
KKR - Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Narine, Chris Woakes
Royal Challengers BangaloreVirat Kohli, Y Chahal, Harshal Patel, Mandeep Singh, KL Rahul, Sarfaraz Khan, Kedar Jadhav, Sreenath Aravind, Stuart Binny, Sachin Baby, Iqbal Abdullah, Avesh Khan. AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Adam Milne, Shane Watson, Travis Head, Samuel Badree, Tabraiz Shamsi, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Chaudhary, Praveen Dubey and B Stanlake.
RCB managed to filter their squad from 30 to 25 this year; 10 players were released from the squad with the likes of Chris Jordan and Varun Aaron being the major exits. 20(joint highest with Mumbai Indians) players were retained and an exciting list of 5 were added.
RCB have always had a star studded batting line up. The batting order is undeniably the best in the league but it’s the bowling line up that Kohli and co have phrased emphasis on. Yuzvendra Chahal and Shane Watson finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in last years list of top wicket takers. The inclusion of Tymal Mills, Aniket Choudhary, Pawan Negi and Billy Stanlake has given a fine balance to the team. Adam Milne also is an exciting prospect; Travis Head has taken the right strides and his hitting ability is known. RCB haven’t had the opportunity to lift the trophy aloft. After missing out narrowly in 2009, 2011 and 2016, Kohli will have his eye keenly fixed on the silverware. The Challengers can turn champions and Virat Kohli will surely look to add one more title to his illustrious collection.
