Royal Challengers Bangalore: VIVO Indian Premier League 2018

The biggest cricket league in the world is back! The best of T20 cricket - the IPL! Read on for what to expect in 2018 from Royal Challengers Bangalore

It is pretty bizarre that RCB have a grand total of 0 IPL titles to their name. They have always had a fantastic squad, and have reached as many as three finals but never quite crossed the final hurdle. IPL 11 will have them chomping at the bit to correct this anomaly. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were understandably retained along with Sarfaraz Khan, while spin twins Pawan Negi and Bengaluru favourite Yuzvendra Chahal were bought using their RTM options. The squad is further strengthened with Umesh Yadav, Brendon McCulum, Quinton de Kock, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes. You would also be hard-pressed to find two better cricketing minds on head coach and batting coach duties than Daniel Vettori and Gary Kirsten. Is this finally the year they come good? Their loyal home crowd will certainly hope so.
