Having enjoyed eleven successful editions, the Indian Premier League is all set to go in its twelfth season. In all these seasons, The Indian T20 league has been a center-stage for many cricketers to showcase their skills.

Royal Challengers Bangalore has probably been one of the most unfortunate teams of the IPL. Despite having reached the final thrice, they have never been able to taste the celebration of lifting the IPL trophy.

Though RCB has had star-studded line-ups filled with exceptional cricketers like Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, Dale Steyn, Jacques Kallis, Zaheer Khan, Virat Kohli, and AB de Villiers play for them.

In the 2018 IPL, Bangalore had a bad season where they finished up with the sixth position in the points table.

Here, we take a look at the three players from their squad who can help Royal Challengers Bangalore to clinch their maiden title.

#3 Yuzvendra Chahal

The Haryana born leg break spinner came into limelight in the Cooch Behar Trophy in 2009, where he took 34 wickets and finishing the tournament as its leading wicket-taker. His googlies can rarely be decoded by the batsman these days.

Yuzvendra Chahal represented the Mumbai Indians in three editions from 2011 to 2013. However, he had to wait a couple of years to make his IPL debut.

In the 2014 IPL Auction, Chahal was bought by the Royal Challengers for ₹10 lakhs. He then went on to pick up 23 and 21 wickets in the 2015 and 2016 IPL respectively.


Chahal has played 70 matches and took 82 wickets with an economy of 7.90. In the 2018 IPL Auction, he was brought back by the RCB using the Right to Match card.

If Chahal can perform at the level he has been performing in the Indian team, Royal Challengers Bangalore will definitely make it to the playoffs and will probably win their first title.
