Team Preview and Player List of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2018

Royal Challengers Bangalore looking to wake up from their slumber When disappointment throws itself up in your face, you have no place to hide; the spotlight will be flush bright on you now. Because you are the one who is meant to succeed. And when you can’t live up to your levels, people will talk, they will point fingers. That’s what the present situation is, for the Royal Challengers Bangalore right now. After a fiery IPL season in 2016, which saw them earn their third runner-up trophy of IPL, RCB had the most dreadful season in 2017. Very often when we try to reach for the stars and are very close to doing so, we can’t get the satisfaction until we achieve our goals. It pretty much sums up the current predilection of the RCB. Before 2016, RCB had been runner-up in the IPL twice. With Gayle, De Villiers, and Kohli, they had always looked like a formidable side – a team the opponents would fear, especially their bowlers.

Defending Champs Mumbai Indians look to continue their dominance When Mumbai Indians will strut on the grounds in the IPL 2018 edition, everyone’s eyes will be on them. During the initial years of the franchise league, they were widely believed to be the perennial underachievers of IPL. Each time they came close to the title, some other team would put an abrupt pause in their momentum, leaving Mumbai Indians dejected. This was the story until 2012. When they played CSK in Eden Gardens final in IPL 2013, their moment finally arrived. Playing some scintillating Cricket they managed to break the deadlock and came home with the coveted trophy. The achievement seemed even bigger considering they beat Chennai Super Kings in the Final. When CSK won their last IPL title back in 2011 beating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Final, they had two titles in their bag, and two other finals as well. In the opening half-decade of IPL, CSK was the most consistent, most dominating team of IPL. While Chennai has failed to collect another title, MI has made the most of their opportunity, winning 3 IPL titles in the past 5 years. This transformation has made Mumbai Indians the most respected as well as the most feared side among all the IPL teams. When IPL 2018 comes around, they will all jump to stake their claim at the...
