One of the most well-liked IPL teams, RCB has a sizable following. More than 6 million people follow the IPL franchise on Twitter. The franchise is almost to the 10-million-follower threshold on Instagram.
The last season saw the three-time finalists go to Qualifier 2, and they will want to advance further this time around after adding several players to their roster at the IPL 2023 auction. In contrast to their approach during the initial IPL seasons, RCB has tried to maintain a strong structure and develop around them in recent years. The franchise has been linked to players like Virat Kohli, Mohammed Siraj, and Harshal Patel for a while now.
Unfortunately, the Royal Challengers had to let go of a few players who went on to play an important role for other IPL teams. The following three ex-RCB players are essential to their existing squad in the IPL 2023. That team that combines international and Indian players and plays as a single unit, in my opinion, is powerful. Instead, RCB possessed highly skilled Indian players and professional international players, but they consistently failed to play as a team. Despite having one of the best and most famous lineups, they have a dismal IPL record. I can tell you right immediately that the lineup appears to be capable of dominating the cricket world. It’s true on occasion, but not always.
Why can’t RCB and the IPL championship get along?
They have frequently spent a significant amount of money on a single player. Cost-benefit analysis is not taken into account. Constant switching and rearranging of the team lineup: The player’s self-confidence is destroyed by this. over-reliance on two or three players They lack a potent bowling attack. There aren’t enough talented Indian athletes, particularly bowlers. Issues with the captaincy exist.
Virat Kohli hasn’t always made the best decisions for his team. They haven’t taken use of home-field advantage: Any good player can hit a few sixes and score runs thanks to the batsman-friendly pitch and the intimate setting. Good bowlers who can take wickets and save a few runs were needed by RCB to stop it. Instead, they consistently supported solid batters (probably not necessary) and subpar bowling.
But this year’s team appears to be strong.
They had a successful auction overall, and the team currently appears to be resolved on paper. To shed the label of underachievers, they will need to turn big names into performances.
