Rating Royal Challengers Banglore's performance in each IPL from 2008-2018
Royal Challengers Bangalore have represented the Karnataka state in the Indian Premier League since the league's inception.
The franchise popularly known by its acronym RCB has developed a huge fan base over the years but the team has never been able to win an IPL trophy despite being home to the best players in the world.
Virat Kohli, the current Indian captain has been with the Royal Challengers Bangalore since 2008 but even his consistency has not helped his team to cross the finishing line. The team has reached the final in three seasons but has lost all of them.
Still, it is one of the most popular cricket teams worldwide. With the 12th season of IPL approaching soon, let us have a look at RCB's performance in the league's last 11 seasons -
2008 - Rahul Dravid's men finish 7th after winning only four out of the 14 matches
RCB were blown away by Brendon McCullum in their first ever IPL match as they succumbed to a heavy defeat against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Royal Challengers managed to win their first match versus Mumbai Indians however, they could not maintain the consistency as they could win only three more matches in the season.
The team finished seventh, just above the Deccan Chargers in the points table as the captain Rahul Dravid and team CEO Charu Sharma were slammed by team owner Vijay Mallya for the poor selection of players.
With just four victories in 14 matches and none of the players performing to their abilities and talent, the first season of the IPL was a season to forget for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
