Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has been the most unsuccessful side in the IPL thus far. Despite having experimented with plenty of talents, the side has not been able to yield benefits from it. However, the IPL 2020 in UAE, will be another chance for RCB to eye the prize they play for.
Ahead of the season, commentator Aakash Chopra analysed and name the must-have players for RCB in their playing XI. While AB de Villiers was an obvious choice, he picked up Aaron Finch as an opener and all-rounders Moeen Ali and Chris Morris to add depth to the side.
“I feel you can play all three. You can play Finch as opener, AB de Villiers as a batsman, Moeen Ali and Chris Morris. These will be my four overseas players in the RCB team I would like to make,” Aakash Chopra said in a video shared on his Facebook page.
“You have enough Indian spin and Moeen Ali will also give some overs of spin. You have a lot of Indian pacers, you have Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj – you have enough,” he added.
RCB has been bolstered with plenty of talents in their ranks. However, they have not been able to make the most of it. RCB have played with the likes of Chris Gayle, captain Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers in their side. But their bowling at the same time has been questionable. Mitchell Starc has missed out on playing for the franchise owing to injuries.
Meanwhile, after VIVO pulled out as the sponsors for IPL, Dream 11 bagged the deal for Rs.220 crore for four months. IPL will get underway from September 19 with the final being played on November 10. However, the final fixture for the lucrative tournament is still to be announced, with Mumbai Indians set to put their title on defense.
