Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has always been a strong side.
Posted October 10, 2020 in IPL.
While there are other options this season, veteran Parhiv Patel and young Karnataka Devdutt Padikkal might be the best combination to kick off the first half. Partiv got the team off to a good start and Padikkal got a red glow with limited shots into the cricket cage. The midfielders are expected to improve their game along with AB de Villiers, captain Virat Kohli and Englishman Moeen Ali. All three have kept their shape and performed well last season. The Captain is highly motivated for huge success this season, leading India to the T-20 World Championship in Australia later this year. At the auction, RCB's main goal is to solve the bowling problem and add an arsenal to the middle order.
Today, Dale Stein and Umesh Yadav have proven to be expensive. Moin Ali will be a welcome addition to the midfielder, but Josh Philip was able to replace Stein with a regular piggy bank.
Over the past few seasons, RCB has struggled to define its core. If we talk about the core, then first of all we are talking about two players: Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. An echo of this is that RCB lacks consistency in Game XI. With the new coaching staff, RCB fans are thrilled again and hope for a miracle at IPL 2020. Yes, it's a miracle. RCB didn't have a better team after the auction and had to ask a few questions before contacting Player XI. The left-hander, who is considered the next largest player in Indian cricket, finished fourth with 174 out of four, including 30. If Aaron Finch also leaves, it will be difficult for both countries to stop the openers in Bangalore.
Dale Stein has added the firepower needed to defeat RCB last year and will lead the pace of the attack. There is no doubt about that. Navdeep Saini and Umesh Yadav will compete for second place on slow terrain in the UAE's slow field. Shiney is a regular on the Indian White Ball Team and has an advantage over the Senior Steps. The leader of RCB's rotational attack, Chahal, is a confirmed pick in Game XI. At 32, he started playing strength games and provided an early breakout for his team. Maharashtra Fast Bowler should be used in the same manner in future releases and may be successful. The new beans are shaken slightly, especially at Chinnaswamy. So Umesh's playing is a good conversation starter. Rohit Sharma is a great IPL brand. He is the most successful captain in the history of a cash-rich league, winning four trophies in tournaments. He is also the third highest scoring scorer in the 4898 league after Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina.
Apart from Rohit, the other best opening batsman is David Warner who is known for his fierce batting skills at the highest level.
Washington Sundar might not be a wicket taker, but he can control the run flow. A handy batter and has international experience.
Moeen Ali, the batting all-rounder in the T20 cricket is third overseas player in the predicted starting XI of RCB. Whilst many might not want Ali in the XI (because of the team combination or whatsoever), he should be in the XI for the first few games at least.
So this should be the playing XI:
