Star Indian pacer and one of the key members of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Umesh Yadav, has said that he desires to win the IPL 2020 trophy for the RCB fans this year. IPL 2020 is all set to take place from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after much deliberations over the tournament.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore will be chasing their maiden IPL title this year. In the last 12 seasons, RCB have failed to do so even after having a plethora of world-class superstars in the team including Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, and Virat Kohli. This has also raised questions on Virat Kohli’s leadership abilities with the team failing to capitalize more often than not.
RCB are the possible title contenders this year, especially with the tournament taking place this year in the UAE and now Umesh Yadav has said that he wants to win it for the fans this year.

Umesh Yadav opened up on the slogan that the loyal fans chant every year and said that they want to win the cup for the fans.
“It doesn’t add to the pressure but you sort of have a mindset that our supporters have been backing us for such a long time in every situation but we haven’t won the cup till now,” Umesh Yadav said.
“Even then fans keep coming and support us. Definitely we feel the need to win the cup for them,” Umesh added.
The Carnival Of Cricket All Set To Take Off From September 19
The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is all set to begin from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The final of the tournament will take place on November 10 and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will announce the complete schedule of the tournament on Friday.
RCB have had a title drought in the Indian Premier League ever since the inception of the tournament way back in 2008. They were on the brink of winning the title in 2016 but David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad crushed their hopes by beating RCB in the final of IPL 2016. RCB will be looking to win their maiden IPL title this year and give something to the fans to cherish.
