RCB All-Time XI — Consistently Inconsistent

RCB All-Time XI - Consistently Inconsistent

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?

- Chris Gayle (2011–2017)

Does it look like my bowling is not that strong? You are probably right and have just answered why RCB have yet to win an IPL.

- Pick 11 players from the list — with 4 foreign players maximum.

- You need to have a wicketkeeper and at least 5 bowling options.
