Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 12: RCB Team Squad, Players List, Strengths & Match Schedule 2019

Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 12: RCB Team Squad, Players List, Strengths & Match Schedule 2019: Virat Kohli-led IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is still on the way to win the title championship but finally end up with nothing even with their great efforts. It’s not that the team is weak as they have a great batting driving force and with the help of that they managed to reach to reach to the finale for about three times. IPL 12 Live Streaming

RCB Strenght & Weakness

The team has made three final appearances overall in the IPL edition such as in the year 2009 where they face-off against the Deccan Chargers, whereas in the year 2011 they challenged Chennai Super Kings and last in the year 2016 which was against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, but unluckily the team loses all of them and didn’t get a chance to win a single one. Hotstar Live Cricket Streaming

Strengths

Destructive batting trio- One of the most apparent strengths RCB has in their squad is the batting trio of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and the newly acquired Shimron Hetmyer. ABD and Virat Kohli are IPL household names while Hetmyer is the new kid on the block with some excellent hitting ability. If Hetmyer can click and Kohli and ABD can be their consistent selves, the RCB fans and the IPL is in for some explosive batting.  IPL 12 Points Table

Weaknesses

Too many options- It’s good to have options on the bench but in the past, we have seen with this Virat Kohli-led side that they take a minimum of five to six games in order to figure out their best XI and almost every game their have been at least a couple of changes. Getting the four foreign players right will be essential as in RCB’s case with AB de Villiers locking up a permanent spot they will have to pick 3 players their remaining 7 foreigners

The team have some of the most dynamic batsmen in cricket world which also include Captain Virat Kohli, but still somehow the team still doesn’t get the title. For the three times the team end up as the runner-ups. The only reason we find here for their failure is their bowling department as the batting department of the team mostly managed to give the lead to the team but the lack of bowling attack always end up in a big failure.

If RCB wants to win the tournament then they really have to work hard to strengthen their bowling department as it is their major drawback.

Today we are going to talk about Royal Challengers Bangalore from their this year’s edition schedule to their full squad and much more.
