It's time for AarrCcBBBeee!!! Royal Challengers Bangalore - Many call them the South African team of IPL. Come the crunch, they have found ways to lose. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have been the faces of RCB and IPL 2019 will be no different. RCB have retained Kohli, ABD, Parthiv, Chahal, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya.​

Ever since RCB had let go of Quinton de Kock, who was traded by Mumbai Indians, ahead of the IPL 2019 auction, the South African wicketkeeper-batsman has been in sensational form! ​

RCB have retained quite a few bowlers and all-rounders. They will be eyeing batsmen who could give them a fiery start at the top. In a poll conducted by Sportskeeda, numerous had expressed their wish to see veteran Yuvraj Singh and dashing West Indian batsman Shimron Hetmyer. ​

Will Kohli look himself as an opener alongside Parthiv or will RCB opt for a dasher at the top like Nicholas Pooran? Bowlers are aplenty up their ranks, but some of them have proven to be expensive at the death.​

How will they fare outside their den - M Chinnaswamy Stadium? Will we see Yuvraj Singh again in RCB? Who will be their surprise pick? ​hammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya​.

Released: Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Quinton de Kock, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Sarfraz Khan​
