Virat Kohli has been running the Royal Challengers Bangalore Club (RCB) since 2013 and still has not won his first Premier League title in India (IPL). This year could be the one where he will lead his team to a title victory as his team seems much more balanced from the team's point of view.
The 2018 edition of the IPL was a forgotten edition for the Bangalore team that found itself in 6th place. Virat Kohli's team seemed upset, his team lacking balance and winning combination. A big failure on the part of the management was to choose the right player XI. This led to the fall of head coach Daniel Vettori, field coach Trent Woodhill and bowling coach Andrew McDonald.
Gary Kirsten will be the head coach of the RCB team and Ashish Nehra will coach the bowling alley. The RCB team dropped 9 players from its team, including stars like Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson and Chris Woakes. Quinton De Kock was bought by the Mumbai Indians.
Their staff has always been the strongest on paper with Kohli and AB de Villiers, two of the best limited edition drummers, wearing the same colors. To add depth in the middle order, they added the young West Indies sensation Shimron Hetmeyer, South African goaltender Heinrich Klaasen and Shivam Dube, who recently emulated Yuvraj Singh's feat of hitting six six.
RCB has a number of versatile players in the team, which will not only ensure balance between teams, but will also allow Captain Kohli to choose from a number of options. Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Pawan Negi are just some of the names of the team that are able to hit the ball out of the park when they hit and send the drummers to the clubhouse with the ball.
As for the bowling department, the RCB team is filled with fast bowlers. They have 6 fast bowlers with a healthy mix of Indian talent and foreign stars. Kohli has only one spinner specialist in his team – Yuzvendra Chahal.
