Royal Challengers Bangalore has somehow carried the burden of not winning an IPL title since the inaugural edition despite having picked up a lot of big names from the auction. They have come closest a lot of times by reaching the finals but haven’t been able to get over the line.
RCB has two of the biggest match-winners in the last decade with Virat Kohli and AB Devilliers, and they had the likes of Chris Gayle in the side until 2018 but still did not have the luck of getting their hands on the championship. They had a good season last year and reached the playoffs.
