4 overseas players from RCB that will be first-choice in the playing XI
Royal Challengers Bangalore has always been full of batting powerhouses & achieved the tag of 'entertainers' from the cricketing fraternity. The bowling has let them down on batting-friendly conditions in Chinnaswamy stadium to keep them away from the title, having reached the finals thrice. But this time around, they will be looking to turn the tables in their favor.
The names like AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum, Quinton de Kock, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Tim Southee, Nathan Coulter-Nile can provide the well-needed balance to the side with the mix consisting of batsmen, bowler, and all-rounders to accompany the chokers to their first IPL title.
#1 Brendon McCullum
First ever batsman to score an IPL century, that too in the inaugural game of the tournament, Brendon McCullum was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore in the player auction this year.
RCB is always known for their squash-buckling batting line-up that often give nightmares to the opposition bowlers. Seeing the 'Universe Boss' entering the dusk of his IPL career, RCB stumbled upon 'The Bazz', who can bruise bowling attacks in no time. Furthermore, he is a capable glove-man and an electric fielder to provide flexibility to the captain.
