Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are a side who have always had some of the best players in the world in their squad. With two of the greatest all-format players in the history of the sport being their mainstays over the course of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the side has produced plenty of memorable performances. However, getting their hands on the IPL trophy has proved to be difficult.

In the 2020 edition of the tournament, RCB finished 4th and were eliminated by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Eliminator. This time around, they decided to release a huge chunk of their players and went for some smart albeit costly buys at the auction like Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell and Dan Christian. The team would now fancy their chances of winning their much-awaited maiden title.
