The most fan-followed franchise which has many supporters all over the World, the one which has the attention of Indian Skipper Virat Kohli and South African Ab de Villiers who are the fame of the team and also the senior players of RCB.
Here is the RCB team prediction for IPL is as follow:-
Royal Challengers Bangalore have shown three IPL final appearances in 2009, 2011 and 2016 where they lost all the Finals and have never won the IPL trophy in last 11 seasons. Last year they came with the slogan of “e sala cup namde” which literally meaned “this year the Cup is ours”, but the slogan did not match with the team performance as RCB did not even qualified for the Playoffs as they were knocked out by Rajasthan Royals in their final league match which was a do or die match. This year’s match predictions can be favoured in RCB’s side.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are the team who always looks stronger on the paper but when it comes to on-field performance they lack in one or other department like in 2016 they had inexperienced bowlers and it was vice versa in 2017 where batting unit was unable to score many runs including the big names of Gayle, Kohli and De Villiers. The Ipl Match predictions for 2019 will vary on proper team selection.
In 2018 they were well balanced with both bat and ball but still could not execute things properly and all the big players bought were not effective in the game. RCB retained 14 of their 24 player’s Squad for last year’s IPL, they traded Quinton De Cock to Mumbai Indians and swapped Mandeep Singh in place of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis from Kings XI Punjab.
They also released eight of their players from last season also including Brendon McCullum and Chris Woakes, so eventually, they filled the places by picking best-predicted players in the IPL auction where two were from abroad Shimron Hetmyer and Henrich Klassen.
Every year the fans have new hope for the franchise predicting this is our year to lift the IPL Trophy. Again this year the batting line-up looks too strong with the addition of Hetmyer, Stoinis, Shivam Dubey, Henrich Klassen and many more.
The Bold Army has 24 players currently and here are the top 5 best predicted emerging Players to look out based on their form and performances in different leagues. Apart from Virat and de Villiers lets look at other players whose support will be required to take the team ahead.
1) Shivam Dubey
Shivam Dubey is a right-arm bowler and a left-handed batter. Dubey gave his reputation a massive uplift in the last year with some big hitting strokes in the Mumbai T20 league, followed by his consistent performances in the Ranji Trophy.
He has hit five sixes in an over twice in his career, first against Pravin Tambe in the Mumbai T20 league, and next against Swapnil Singh in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. His impressive figures of 3 for 29 helped Mumbai win the Vijay Hazare Trophy almost after 11 years. He is bought by RCB for five crores this year.
2) Shimron Hetmyer
The left-handed Carribean youngster was the third highest run scorer in his home’s CPL with 440 runs took his team Guyana Amazon Warriors to the finals. He is bought by RCB for 4.2 crores where five teams were chasing the West Indian player.
He can be a solid middle-order for RCB to smash biggies into the crowd, according to our IPL match predictions he will be one of the players to be in the top 10 run-scorer board.
3) Marcus Stoinis
The Australian all-rounder with his slower deliveries can trap the batsman to give away their wickets and bats mostly at No.6 also can play big shots and add runs to the team when required.
He has played three seasons for Kings XI Punjab and has made 262 runs with the bat and has taken 13 wickets with the ball and after 2018 season he was swapped by Punjab with Bangalore for Mandeep Singh. He can be an X-factor for RCB.
Stoinis can be an opening choice too as he just started opening for his Big Bash Franchise Melbourne Stars and has scored three times 50+ scores.
4) Himmat Singh
The right-arm off breaker who plays for Delhi at Domestic level, he has been playing List A cricket for a few years, but the young bloke scored his first List A century recently against Andhra.
The 22 year plays as a middle-order batsman and can be used by RCB as they have always seen troubles in the middle order and HImmat can resolve this problem for them.
5) Mooen Ali
The English player was bought by RCB last year and played only five matches for them and his most significant role seen was against Sunrisers Hyderabad his firing 65 off 34 balls where he supported AB de Villiers to put a 200+ score on the board. He is also useful with his off-breaks as International level and can be used in the middle overs to crack wickets for the opposition.
So these were our best-predicted players of IPl who can play the major role in getting RCB their 1st IPL title.
