IPL 2017 RCB Team Players List
Royal Challengers Bangalore team 2017
Bangalore IPL team 2017 players list is placed here. Even though the Royal Challengers Bangalore were the runners-up last season, they certainly won the hearts of all the spectators and fans across the globe. What began as a rocky journey for them soon led them to the second place in the table and eventually, the final of the 2016 Indian Premier League. Backed by a crew of hard-hitters and explosive players, RCB will be looking to finish the unfinished business this year. RCB players 2017 list is placed below.
It is fair to say that even though they played as a team, there are certain players who deserve a special attention. Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers together dominated the batting arena in the second half of the league, as they moved on to set some terrific batting records. More so than this, the team relied on each other and were capable of stepping up and play responsibly when situation demanded it. At one point in the league, they found themselves at a situation where they had to win every single match from that point on to reach the final. Owing to Kohli’s brilliant captaincy and a great effort by the rest, they managed to do the impossible.
Virat Kohli not only did his job as a captain beautifully, but also proved himself to be one of the most consistent batsmen in the T20 format. In the 16 innings he played in during the course of the tournament, he scored a humongous 973 runs! With a strike rate of 152.03 and a high score of 113 runs, his presence was made far more appealing by AB de Villiers. Virat Kohli could however miss the initial stages of IPL 10 due to injury. KL Rahul will also join the sidelines with Kohli as he misses IPL 10 due to a shoulder injury.
The Protean scored 687 runs during his campaign, while complimenting Kohli by making some of the most impressive partnerships with him. With 57 fours and 37 sixes, he was bested only his Indian adversary, who led the tally with 83 fours and 38 sixes. Apart from them, KL Rahul too deserves a mention, as he scored 397 runs in 12 innings.
Considering their bowling, they lacked the big names from the beginning of the season. But Yuzvendra Chahal and Shane Watson stepped up to the mark by taking 21 and 20 wickets respectively. Next in the line was Sreenath Arvind, who took 11 wickets. However, In the final match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Shane Watson and Chris Jordan proved to be highly expensive. In their defense however, having lost Australian paceman Mitchell Starc and Adamn Milne early to the injury, it was hard for the others to fill the void. Mitchell Starc won’t be playing for RCB anymore as he wants to focus on international commitments.
One surprise which many fans got was Chris Gayle, who didn’t shine that much with the bat when compared to previous years. But his absence wasn’t felt, owing to Kohli and de Villiers. This season, they missed the mark by just 8 runs in the final. Hopefully, next year, they will break the jinx and go the distance to win the trophy. In terms of acquisition, RCB have roped in Tymal Mills from England. He is a left-arm bowler who is usually seen hurling balls in excess of 145+ kph.
To sum it up then, a question for all of you. What do you get when you have a hurricane, a volcano and an earthquake all wrapped up in one package? Well, you get team RCB which is capable of ripping apart any bowling attack and torturing any batting unit. Fingers crossed to see this happening in this year’s IPL.
