While RCB faced criticism for their performance in the auction, one has to admit that they also made some good choices to put together a balanced unit. Royal Challengers are one of the few teams that have not won the IPL title yet. With this squad, they hope to turn things around.
First, he needs a captain, and he is very likely to be Faf du Plessis. South Africa can open at No. 3 along with Virat Kohli with Anuj Rawat. Kohli can also open on some occasions. Glenn Maxwell of Australia can come at number four.
He can go mid-stage or maintain a rhythm. They have an experienced batting-wicketkeeper in Dinesh Karthik. Karthik will come after Maxwell and his role will be to finish the game.
Along with Shahbaz Nadeem, Mahipal Lomror, Vanindu Hasaranga are set to work in the lower middle order – this is where RCB look a bit weak.
They have three fast bowlers in Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood and Mohammad Siraj.

The Bangalore-based Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), headed by Virat Kohli, competes in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and plays its home matches at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
In IPL 2021, however, all games will be held at neutral venues, with no team playing in their home stadium. All clubs will play at four of the six places during the league stage.
United Spirits owns RCB, one of the first eight teams to be founded in 2008. Despite being a great team on paper, Bangalore have never won a championship in the 13-year history of the Indian Premier League.
Despite having high popularity ratings, Royal Challengers Bangalore has been runner-up three times, but has no trophy to show for it. RCB finished ninth in the 2017 edition and sixth in the 2018 edition.
They were the second most expensive franchise in 2008, having been bought for Rs 464 crore (approximately US$111.6 million). In 2015, Vijay Mallya, chairman of United Breweries Limited, sold the team to Diageo India.
