 Team Profile IPL 2021; Royal Challengers Bangalore: Full Player List, Squad and Top Records

The Royal Challengers Bangalore has been busy finding the perfect squad to take home the IPL 2021 trophy. They have been signing, releasing, and retaining players trying to achieve the perfect squad. The captain Virat Kohli and de Villiers doesn’t have good players to take the match down. However, they have been trying to impress by playing the play-offs then leaving the rest to Virat Kohli to do his thing in the knock-outs. Here is the team’s profile, squad, player list, and any record they hold.

The RCB is driven by the fact that they have never won the IPL trophy in the last three seasons, 2009, 2011, and 2016. The team almost finished last in each season, except for 2020 IPL when they managed to get to the play-offs. However, they are confident of turning things around this season with their recruits and Virat still as captain.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore is led by the best batsman worldwide, Virat Kohli. Simon Katich is the RCB coach, and he is also the former Australian coach. United Spirits own the team, and they have never made it to the top in any IPL matches. The best they have done in the past three seasons of IPL is to be the runner-ups.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore Bowlers

The RCB bowlers as of 2021 include the following players;

  • Yuzvendra Chahal
