Royal Challengers Bangalore is a powerful team in the Indian Premier League that has made it to the finals on three occasions- IPL 2009, IPL 2011, and IPL 2016. But unfortunately, the Virat Kohli-led side ended up as runners-up in all these seasons.

Out of 13 seasons, the team reached the playoffs 6 times, which is quite a good record to look upon. In IPL 2021’s first half, RCB bagged the 3rd spot in the points table with 5 victories in 7 matches.

Royal Challengers Bangalore consists of few powerful domestic players in the current squad like Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Washington Sundar, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Navdeep Saini. Among the overseas players, AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, and Kyle Jamieson are among few popular members of the team.

RCB has singed many outstanding players in the previous auctions but there are also some deals that did not work for the team. Here we take a look at the 5 worst signings by Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL history.

During IPL 2020 auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore bought Aaron Finch for a massive amount of Rs. 4.40 crore. Finch is a hard-hitting batsman in international cricket but he could not show up for a spectacular show in IPL 2020.

The Australian batsman scored 268 runs in 12 innings at an average of 22.33. He managed to hit a fifty in one match but did not smash more good knocks in the season. He batted at a strike rate of just 111+. Finch was also released by the franchise after IPL 2020.
