Article top

We have to admit that the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise owners had a great outing in the recent IPL Mega Auctions 2022. Unfortunately, we will not see Mr.360 in this edition, and still, the management has pulled in a few star players into their camp. RCB is one of the most popular teams in IPL and no doubt they will be having a good amount of support from them. Here in this article, we have mentioned Royal Challengers Bangalore Strengths and Weaknesses.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Full Squad

Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Mohammed Siraj, Faf du Plessis, Harshal Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dinesh Karthik, Josh Hazlewood, Shahbaz Ahmad, Anuj Rawat, Akash Deep, Mahipal Lomror, Finn Allen, Sherfane Rutherford, Jason Behrendorff, Suyash Prabhudessai, Chama Milind, Aneeshwar Gautam, Karn Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Luvnith Sisodia, David Willey

RCB was successful in grabbing Faf Du Plessis, Dinesh Karthik, and W Hasaranga into their squad – And all the 3 players will play a huge role for this side.

After a disappointing last season, Virat Kohli has officially announced about stepping as the RCB skipper – Now we have to see who will be the next RCB captain.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Predicted 11 :

Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Mahipal Lomror, Finn Allen, Dinesh Karthik, Wanindu Hasaranga, Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel, Shahbaz Ahmad, Mohammed Siraj.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Strengths and Weaknesses:


  • One of the main standing pillars for RCB for almost a decade is their former skipper Virat Kohli. His presence on the field gives them the entire side a big boost and even he is very personally attached to this franchise. During the last few seasons, Kohli’s batting was that great because of the captaincy duties – Now he is free from those responsibilities and he will look to fire up his game for this edition.
  • The addition of Faf du Plessis in the top-order will definitely make a huge difference for them. Having the experienced player at the top will be a boost for them and everyone knows how much an opening batsman is important in a T20 game. He has single-handedly won many games for CSK and he will look to continue the same form in this edition too.
  • Dinesh Karthik’s inclusion will make a huge impact on them as the tournament progresses. Everyone knows how RCB was struggling in the middle over the years and with his inclusion the franchise is looking to fill in the gap.


  • We have to admit that AB de Villiers was one of the important players of the RCB’s camp over the years and his absence in this edition might hurt them very badly.
  • No Doubt they have good batsmen in the camp – But there is no consistency in the batting unit. Looking at the entire RCB players on paper it looks like they are not a strong batting unit – But we have to see what they will bring in as the tournament progresses.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to start with a positive note with this new mix of players. Let’s wait and whether they can win their maiden IPL trophy or not.
