IPL 2018 RCB Players List
Royal Challengers Bangalore 2018 team
RCB team 2018 players list is placed here. Gary Kirsten and Ashish Nehra are appointed the new head coaches of RCB ahead of IPL 2019. The Royal Challengers Bangalore are one of the original IPL franchises but despite that they have never won the title. They have come close on numerous occasions, reaching three finals but losing in every one of those. With Indian superstar Virat Kohli captaining the side they have one of the best cricket players in the world, if not the best, and because of that you always have to respect their challenge. RCB will be looking to finish the unfinished business this year. RCB players 2018 list is placed below.
The first move made by the Challengers was to retain players, and they did that by keeping two star players plus an exciting youngster. Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Sarfaraz Khan were the first three players on the RCB team 2018 squad.
Kohli needs no introduction to fans, he has been a great servant to Indian cricket and during his time with the Challengers he has had a lot of success. He knows the game inside out, and is a huge player for the entire nation, everyone respects what Kohli can do with his bat and he is a player that we all get excited about.
AB de Villiers is another world class player, who fans will be very familiar with. Despite being 33 he still has plenty of offer and as well as being a top class batsman he can also be their wicketkeeper if they choose. He has also confirmed participation in PSL 2019. Alongside the two stars is 20 year old Sarfaraz Khan, a youngster who is improving with every season in the IPL. He has the ability to do things a little differently, and can play some thrilling shots to wow the fans in attendance.
During the players auction, the Challengers did exactly what they need to. They added even more depth to their batting, and brought in some very good bowlers to give them a huge chance of success in 2018.
Their top four is as good as any in the tournament and these four players are going to be fantastic to watch for the crowds in attendance. Joining Kohli and de Villiers will be Brendon McCullum and Quinten de Kock, two hugely experienced and exciting cricketers. The hopes of the Challengers will rest on these four players, this is their main strength and if they deliver, the Challengers will go close to winning the 2018 IPL.
The Challengers also have a good looking bowling line-up, with quick bowlers Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes, Tim Southee and Nathan Coulter-Nile in the team. They are going to challenge hard with the new ball, and all of them are good at the death, offering variations in pace and line to keep the batsmen thinking.
With Kohli in the roster, anything is possible from the Challengers, and he now has a great supporting cast to help him out. No matter where you look at their line-up, you will see quality. From the top order, into the big hitters in the middle order and finally the bowlers, the Challengers have it all and they should go very close in the 2018 IPL.
