Despite not winning a single Indian Premier League (IPL) title in the previous editions, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have always been the perennial entertainer in the lucrative T20 competition. They once again enter as the favourites to win the tournament. This time, it will be under the watchful eyes of experienced Mike Hesson, who will coach the team.

Recently, RCB revealed their full fixtures for the 13th edition of the IPL on Saturday.

The Virat Kohli-led RCB will open their IPL 2020 campaign against two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on their home ground – the M Chinnaswamy Stadium – on March 31. They will play 7 matches at home on March 31st, April 7th, 18th, 22nd, May 3rd, 14th and 17th.

RCB, who have reached the final of IPL 3 times, are yet to win a trophy. In 2016, Kohli led them single-handedly to the final but the Bengaluru-based franchise has been struggling since.

RCB finished 8th in 2017, 6th in 2018 and finished with the wooden spoon again last season.
