Royal Challengers Bangalore’s big 3 in the Indian Premier League 2021. Bangalore has never won the IPL and has finished second on three events between 2009 and 2016. RCB has always had superstar players. But for the lack of depth in their bowling department. Also, with a few tactical blunders, RCB has never gone all the way to clinch the title. Since 2011 the RCB has made it to the playoffs in just 12 matches. Their team looks far better balanced. Also, the Indian contingent has been performing. The star players have stepped up on different events to be counted.
Bangalore has had stutters on the way. But this has been one of their best seasons. They have made it to the playoffs as the third-ranked team after the league stage.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s big 3
- Glenn Maxwell #1
Glenn Maxwell has been in roaring form for RCB this season. They have hit amazing levels of consistency in the UAE leg. In 14 matches this season, he has scored 498 runs. At an average of 45.27 with a strike rate of 147.33. Maxwell has been superb on slow and quiet pitches. Also, this has come as a huge boost for RCB. If Virat Kohli’s side has to go all the way, they have to win either of two matches in Dubai. Or two in Sharjah and then the final.
- The performance of Indian players #2
Royal Challengers Bangalore has generally relied heavily on foreign players. The Indian contingent has slipped off the radar. However, they have rectified this trend this season. In KS Bharat and Harshal Patel, RCB has two uncapped Indian players. They are having a set the stage on fire.
- Consistency in selection #3
Consistency in selection has not always been associated with RCB. They have chopped and changed their personnel after every match. However, they have stuck to the players. They believe in and have given them a long run in their respective roles. Also, this has yielded great results for the side.
