Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently the biggest T20 league cricket in the world and financially as good as some other big boy tournament. A total of 10 teams are now participating in the competition for the coveted Trophy.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one of the most popular team in the history of the competition. Even though the franchise have not won any Trophy in its existence, but they have one of the most biggest fan base among the franchises.
The team boasts of some of top talents from India and overseas players. Players like Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis are current stars of the team while AB de Villiers has been a huge part of the team in past.
RCB had so much talent over the years that some hugely talented players haven’t had a chance to establish themselves in the team. There have been some players who have done their wonders in one season and the other season they just disappeared.
