“E Sala Cup Namde” – we hear this slogan from the RCB fans every year. But have they been able to put out those results? It doesn’t seem like so as they have qualified for the playoffs only twice in last seven years, that also includes them finishing as runners up in 2016 season. Their best seasons were in 2009 and 2016 where they were avenged by the opposition in the finals.
When we look at the RCB side, it’s a side which has always looked good on paper. But when we talk about the performances, they haven’t really been able to showcase it out in the middle. The RCB side is led by the Indian captain Virat Kohli, who took over from Daniel Vettori in 2012 but hasn’t been able to bring that success to the franchise.
Just like every year, even this year RCB have acquired some new players in the squad. These players just like many others have proven their true potential in the T20 arena in leagues across the world.
This year RCB have made some interesting picks in the form of Aaron Finch, Josh Phillipe, Isuru Udana, Kane Richardson etc. There are various combinations that can be formed with the RCB squad this year. So let’s take a look at their probable playing XI.
Let’s have a look at the predicted playing XI of Royal Challengers Bangalore for IPL 2020:
1. Aaron Finch
The Australia limited-overs captain is one of the new picks in the RCB camp this year. He was acquired for a hefty 4.40 crores INR in the IPL 2020. He is one of the best openers in World cricket at the moment and has built the fierce reputation of taking teams to explosive starts.
It is expected that Finch will be a first-choice pick in the playing XI and will have the responsibility of giving RCB an explosive start with Parthiv Patel.
