Its captain Virat Kohli may be widely considered the best in business at present, but Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has never won the title in any of the 12 editions of Indian Premier League (IPL) played so far. In the 13th edition, the three-time finalist will kick start its IPL 2020 campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at home ground, Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy stadium, on March 31. RCB will play two afternoon matches (4 pm start) and 12 evening matches (8 pm start).
The team is entering IPL 2020 with a more rounded squad, having roped in Australian Aaron Finch and South African Chris Morris, among others. These new recruits are expected to give captain Kohli and AB de Villiers the much-needed support at the marquee event.
RCB’s performance in last two IPL seasons has been rather dismal — it finished eighth in IPL 2019 and sixth in IPL 2018.
