RCB All-Time XI….this is a tough one.
The Royal Challengers from Bangalore. They have so far remained just that- challengers, not champions. Can they win it this time in 2020?
Only time will tell, but let us reflect back and look at the All-Time XI of RCB.
- Gayle, Kohli, and ABD – the three stars RCB has revolved around, but then who else?
- Kohli has played 177 games for RCB, ABD-126, Gayle-85, Chahal-83, and Vinay Kumar-64. The next in line is Zaheer Khan with mere 44 games.
- Bangalore gave the Indian team Dravid & Kumble, but do they even find a place in the XI?
- 2009, 2011, 2016 – (Runners Up), 2010, 2015 – (3rd)
