“Ee Sala Cup Namade!” (This time the cup is ours)
Yes, its almost that time of the year, when this slogan buzzes among the supporters of
Royal Challengers Bangalore. Since the induction of the Indian Premier League (IPL), RCB has come close three times to win the trophy but faltered in the finals. After a devastating start last season, RCB players came together and were just one point away from playoffs. The team will be looking to get one better this time around.
Before the IPL Auctions 2020, the franchise released 12 players including 6 foreigners. RCB’s strength has always been their batting. However, the likes of Virat Kohli, ABD and Devdutt Padikkal will need some support. RCB will look to purchase a decent batsman, allrounders and an opening/death bowler.
