IPL 2021: Royal Challengers Bangalore – Royal Challengers Bangalore are among the three teams that are yet to win the IPL title since the inception of the tournament in 2008. A star-studded outfit, Bangalore have struggled over the years despite having the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers leading their side over the years. RCB’s IPL journey can be summed in a bizarre stat, with the franchise having posted the highest and the lowest total in the history of the tournament.
After a disastrous first season, RCB made it to the playoffs for three consecutive seasons, losing two finals to Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings. They returned to the playoffs after a gap of two years, and finished 3rd, before making yet another final in 2016, where they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Since then RCB failed to make the playoffs for three straight years, before returning to the top four last year and were knocked out in the eliminator.
This season, Virat Kohli’s side are third in the standings, having won five of their seven games so far. The Bangalore based franchise have done the hard bit and will hope for a smooth passage into the playoffs and potentially end their title drought when the IPL resumes in UAE.
