Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) did make the top four for the first time since 2016; however, the dream came crashing down once again this year. They suffered a six-wicket defeat to SunRisers Hyderabad in the eliminator in Abu Dhabi, bringing their campaign to an end. RCB also ended IPL 2020 with five losses on the bounce, which began with a come-from-behind victory against SRH.
The trend of over-reliance for runs on Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers continued even this year despite the presence of Moeen Ali and Aaron Finch. While Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers did have satisfactory outings this year, their form was inconsistent in the latter half of the edition. However, there were positives in the form of Devdutt Padikkal, Chris Morris, and Yuzvendra Chahal, who all performed in a league of their own.
We take a look at Royal Challengers Bangalore’s players’ performance ratings:
Virat Kohli – 7/10:
With the bat, Virat Kohli mustered 466 runs in 15 games with three half-centuries with an average of 42.36 and strike rate of 121.35. However, the over-dependency on him and AB De Villiers apart from his captaincy at various stages cost the Royal Challengers several games at the back end. The 32-year old opened in the last game; however, he failed, managing only six runs as the franchise’s campaign came to a close.
