RCB will have another chance to turn their fortunes and get their hands on the first IPL title. The Bangalore franchise in the recent past had plenty of fiery batsmen in their ranks but had failed to get their bowling combination right. However, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg feels, RCB will be one of the favourites to win the IPL 2020.
RCB have a brilliant tactician in form of Mike Hesson among their coaching staff and might bring about some needed change in the side. Brad Hogg was asked by a fan about his opinion on which team can with the IPL 2020. To which he replied to the tweet saying – “RCB, Mi, KKR. #ipl2020 #askhoggy“

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. RCB chairman Sanjeev Churiwala believes performance delivers the side but it has not been up to the mark.
RCB has the record of reaching three finals. RCB entered the final match last time in 2016 but since then they have been at the bottom of the table. Moreover, in 2019, the franchise finished last with just 5 wins from 14 matches. The team chairman has also said that though the team is learning, not winning titles adds pressure.
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.
