Will Royal Challengers Bangalore compete in 2018?
Virat Kohli will be keen to produce better results in the 11th edition of Indian Premier League.
The Indian Captain has been in sublime form and shattered all sorts of records across all three formats. Kohli has achieved a lot in his cricketing career, but he will be determined to make sure Royal Challengers Bangalore can break their trophy jinx this season.
During 2018 IPL auction, RCB took a different approach and released big players like Shane Watson, Mitchell Starc, KL Rahul and Chris Gayle for the coming season. The acquisition of players like Quinton de Kock, Chris Woakes, Tim Southee, and Moeen Ali will certainly increase side’s bench strength for the upcoming edition.
Head Coach Daniel Vettori and team management have gone for better options with the bat and ball rather going for one or two big players in the 2018 IPL auction. The key to winning the league will depend on how Indian players like Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar perform this season.
RCB will play all their home games at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. The surface is known to be a batting paradise but it turned out to be sluggish and show in nature in the previous edition of the league.

Tips for betting on Royal Challengers Bangalore
- Most wickets betting:
The inclusion of new players like Chris Woakes, Nathan-Coulter Nile and Washington Sundar have certainly added more strength to the bowling department. Moeen Ali and Yuzvendra Chahal are premier spinners for the franchise, while Mohammad Siraj, Tim Southee, and Umesh Yadav are other pace options for the side.
Based on recent form and performances, Chris Woakes should be the standout bowler for Royal Challengers Bangalore for the coming season. The English bowler did exceedingly well in his first stint in the Indian Premier League 2017 and finished with 17 wickets in 13 games for Kolkata Knight Riders. Woakes could easily be RCB’s best player in the competition as he has been doing exceedingly over the past couple of years.
- Most runs betting:
There is no doubt that Virat Kohli is the premier batsman in the squad after being by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a whopping price of Rs 17 crore for the coming season. AB De Villiers, Brendon McCullum, Sarfaraz Khan, Quinton de Kock are explosive players included in the setup for the 2018 IPL season. For us, Virat Kohli would be our pick among the batsman as he has been in a scintillating form with the bat in last six months.
