If we dig into the past, Royal Challengers Bangalore as a team has shown many great performances yet, they are waiting to lift the maiden IPL trophy. Will the wait come to an end this time? The RCB fans are curiously waiting for this special moment. Just two days remain to kick off the first match, and the battle is against Mumbai Indians. I hope they have a good start.
Even though they have skilled players in the squad, they haven’t lifted the trophy yet, and that’s quite shocking. Have you all remembered the explosion that came from the bat of "The Universe Boss," Chris Gayle? The encounter occurred back in 2013 with "Pune Warriors India," and the Jamaican left-hander just dominated the bowlers and remains unbeaten on 175. Similarly, many other batsmen show promise, which is carried in the hearts of RCB fans.
Best Opening Player to Look For?
Kiwi Player Finn Allen, who has had a strike rate of above 150, can do extremely well for RCB. His track records tell that he is an explosive batsman and made a fabulous innings back in November with Australian pacers. The Young blood scored 42 from just 16 balls and has created a benchmark for the side. Definitely, Allen with the veteran South African Batsmen FAF du Plessiscan smash the first ten overs and put a great contribution to the Scoreboard.
Star Players That Needs No Introduction
"The man who needs no introductions" King Kohli can be a game changer when the team is in trouble; he has done so on numerous occasions. As we all know, over the last few years, he had some dips in form, but he came back stronger, and this year, the viewers witnessed him dominating with the bat. Undoubtedly, he can maintain consistency for the team and may help the team lift the first trophy for RCB.
Additionally, there are other talented batsmen who can take the team forward. Faf du Plessis, as an opener, can accelerate in the beginning and create fear with the opposition. Even so, he is aggressive in the field and puts pressure on opponents. The next one is Australia’s hard-hitting Glenn Maxwell, who is capable of smashing the ball outside the fence and keeping the run rate higher. He is an integral part of the team, a right-arm off-spinner, and an excellent fielder.
Dinesh Karthik, a great finisher who has proven himself in taking the team to victory even during crucial times. What else does the team need? Also, the pace of the attack is relentless. The opposition may be worried about dealing with the variations of RCB pacers. Mohammed Siraj, a great swing bowler who may give an early strike and could bag crucial wickets, More importantly, Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who is extraordinary at turning the ball and trapping the batsmen, Besides, he is a hard hitter and may be an x-factor for the team. Also, the new faces are powerful additions to the team.
To sum up, it’s just hours remaining to start the IPL season of 2023; the entire cricket lovers are super excited and looking forward to watch the first match between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super king. RCH has their first game this Sunday against the Mumbai Indians. All the very best to all the teams taking part in the 2023 edition of the IPL. Will the cup be ours?
