Both the teams have built completely new squads, with new captains. Faf du Plessis will lead the Royal Challengers’ Bangalore side while Mayank Agarwal will lead the Punjab Kings side. Virat Kohli will continue to be a part of the RCB as a player. Bangalore’s bowling looks mightier with the trio of Siraj, Hazlewood, and Harshal Patel.
