2020 put their table around and they bagged a seat in playoffs, but can they repeat it again and win a debut trophy for RCB franchise? Virat Kohli’s leadership team will be facing 5 times trophy winner Mumbai Indians on the season’s opener on 9th April 2021.
With their opener Devdutt Padikkal already affected by COVID-19, the team might look for further alternatives for a while.
With a very sound auction at the office, the Virat and company bought players like Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson, Daniel Christian to name a few, RCB looked very much balanced this time.
Strength: Having a solid batting line-up is their biggest strength. Players like Virat, ABD, Padikkal, and Maxwell can deliver accordingly to the situations. Team also has the experience of the T-20 specialist Daniel Christian now.
Weakness: The team is too reliant on their top 3. Lack of individual step-ups can make the team less versatile. The bowling department is another issue. Would be interesting to see if the addition of Daniel Sams and Kyle Jamieson could resolve that problem.
What to expect: Team has a good bunch of domestic experienced players. The team needs a spark in their opening matches to get in the flow. With new exciting prospect indulging with them, the team looks pretty much balanced which gives them a fair chance to stand out and get into the Play-offs.
RCB Key players:- Virat, ABD, Padikkal, Maxwell, Yuzi, Siraj
