IPL 2024: 3 reasons why RCB will not win the tournament

RCB has won only one match out of five. With each match, the probability of RCB winning the IPL trophy is diminishing.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) have been waiting for their first Indian Premier League (IPL) title since the inaugural season in 2008. Many legendary players have come and gone from this team, without fulfilling the dream of lifting the IPL trophy for RCB even once. The drought for Bengaluru did end, but not by the men’s team; instead, it was the women’s team who achieved the feat. This time, fans were hoping that the men’s team would take inspiration from the women’s team, and this time, it would be “Ee sala Cup Namde” (This time the cup is ours). However, looking at RCB’s performance, it seems difficult for them to win this time as well.

Star players disappointing performance

RCB has always prided itself on its batting prowess. Season after season, Bengaluru has boasted the best batting line-up, with star batters gracing their ranks. In IPL 2024, they possess a formidable lineup featuring the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Dinesh Karthik. However, apart from Kohli, none have managed to find their form, resulting in a struggling batting performance for the team.

Bowling unit failure

RCB has never prioritized strengthening their bowling department, which could be a significant factor contributing to their lack of trophies. It’s a well-established fact that a team with a strong bowling lineup stands a better chance of clinching the title, as relying solely on batters is often insufficient to secure victory in a tournament. In IPL 2024, their key pacer, Mohammed Siraj, has failed to hit form, and they also lack quality spinners.

Virat Kohli’s average

Virat Kohli has maintained an average of 105.33 this season. However, despite his consistency, his slow-paced innings are not aiding his team. He needs to accelerate his strike rate to contribute significant runs to the team’s total. The anchor innings he is playing may not be very effective for the team, as evidenced by the match where he scored a hundred but his team ended up on the losing side.
