All about IPL Franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore

Posted by Atin Jain on December 4th, 2018

The Bangalore based franchise cricket team in IPL is the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The team was founded in the year 2008 and it plays its home matches at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

The team is captained by the best batsman in the world Virat Kohli and coached by Gary Kirsten. Though captained by Virat Kohli, unluckily, the team did not win a single IPL title yet.

The team has made three final appearances in the IPL but lost all. The team lost to Deccan Chargers in the year 2009, in 2011 to the Chennai Super Kings and lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016. They also lost the final against the Mumbai Indians in the 2011 Champions League Twenty20.

The unique thing about the Royal Challengers Bangalore is that they hold the record for both the highest total i.e. 263/5 and the lowest total i.e. 49.

Ahead of the forthcoming IPL auction 2019 which is scheduled on December 18 in Jaipur, IPL stats show that the fourth most popular IPL team on social media is Royal Challengers Bangalore even they have not won a single IPL title. Before IPL 2019, stats show that RCB has 9.3M Facebook followers, 3.31M Twitter Followers, and 1.9M Instagram followers.

The 12th edition of Indian Premier League will start from 29th March 2019. It will be interesting to watch whether RCB manages to win its first IPL title or not. The presence of star players like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers attracts a lot of people to the team.

South African batsman AB de Villiers has announced his retirement from international cricket earlier this year but he will play for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the upcoming Indian Premier League. He is very excited to rejoin Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

ABD wants to erase all the disappointments of IPL 2018 and he knows RCB has the potential to win and is working hard to win the IPL title for the first time.
