RCB reveal jersey for IPL 2020
RCB will look to finally win their first title when IPL 2020 commences on the 19th of September.
The team recently started training in the UAE, with Kohli and De Villiers hitting the nets. The Indian captain looked to be in good nick, and even nailed a pull to dispel fears that he might not be at his best post the long pandemic-enforced break.
De Villiers, on the other hand, was rather circumspect at the beginning, but showed signs of the form that he has displayed for RCB over the past few years. The former Proteas captain may also don the wicket-keeping gloves for RCB in IPL 2020, with head coach Simon Katich claiming that is option is certainly one that is being considered.
Alongside Kohli and De Villiers, Australian white-ball captain Aaron Finch and England all-rounder Moeen Ali are expected to be key players for RCB in IPL 2020, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar will also have big roles to play on the spin-friendly tracks in the UAE.
