IPL 2021: Royal Challengers Bangalore Full Squad Analysis including their strength, weakness, opportunities and Threats

IPL 2021: Royal Challengers Bangalore Full Squad Analysis including their strength, weakness, opportunities and Threats

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are one of the most successful teams in the Indian Premier League. The Bangalore-based franchise has a dedicated fan base that supports them regardless of their success. Surprisingly, the Royal Challengers Bangalore released the majority of their players before the IPL 2021 season. In comparison to 2020, they have a very different team this year. At the IPL Auction 2021, the team management made a variety of dubious decisions. 

Full Squad of Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Retained Players: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Yuzvendra Chahal, Devdutt Padikkal, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pavan Deshpande

New Players: Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell, Dan Christian, Sachin Baby, Rajat Patidar, Mohammed Azharuddin, Suyash Prabhudesai, KS Bharat.

Last Season Performance of Royal Challengers Bangalore:

The Royal Challengers Bangalore finished fourth in the IPL 2020 season. Many expected the Royal Challengers Bangalore would end their title drought based on their results in the first half of IPL 2020. However, the same did not happen. Bangalore slowed down in the competition’s final stages. The Sunrisers Hyderabad’s season came to a close in the playoffs.

SWOT Analysis of RCB:

Strengths — Batting unit

For the 2021 season, the Royal Challengers Bangalore have assembled one of the most dangerous batting lineups in IPL history. Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Joshua Philippe were already in the Bangalore-based franchise’s squad. They’ve now signed several big-name players to their roster.

Glenn Maxwell has signed with the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the IPL 2021 season, while Mohammed Azharuddeen, an uncapped player, has also signed with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Sachin Baby, a former Royal Challengers Bangalore player, has rejoined the franchise. Daniel Christian, a Big Bash League member, has also rejoined the Royal Challengers.

Weakness — The Pace Attack

The speed department of the RCB does not inspire trust. Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj haven’t bowled with the white ball before and have a history of leaking runs. Jamieson has struggled in T20Is and has no prior international experience. Harshal Patel, a medium pacer, and the Australian trio of Christian, Daniel Sams, and Kane Richardson are also choices.

Opportunities — Harshal Patel and KS Bharat have a great chance 

The challenge of getting new pace bowlers, such as Mark Wood of England and Lungi Ngidi of South Africa, alongside Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur, could rejuvenate the Chennai Super Kings and their captain, who otherwise has a seasoned squad of over 30-year-olds in terms of forming a young, stealth weapon or two against an unsuspecting opposition.

Threats — Maxwell’s form

Glenn Maxwell is a player who can still win matches alone. But seven years have passed since the IPL fans saw the rival bowling units demolished by Glenn Maxwell. A few good results have taken place here and there from him. Yet Maxwell couldn’t duplicate the brilliance of its 2014 IPL.

In the UAE last year, the Australian Allrounder had a catastrophic IPL season. Even once in IPL 2020, he struggled to clear the border and stressed his lousy form.

Top Performers of IPL 2020:

In the absence of an official opening partner, Padikkal was somewhat weighed down; he was reduced to an army of one man at the top of the line. He may play shots around the wicket and play them with the game, which to the left seems normal.

Chahal was unquestionably the hero of the RCB ball. The fearless flight he takes is a lesson for everyone in the game, and he came to the rescue of RCB during the season. The other bowlers in the crew had a lead on his 21 wickets – with a superb economy rate of 7.08.

Player’s To Look Out For This Season:

RCB hopes that New Zealand Fast Bowler Kyle Jamieson will get decent at the Indian pitches, but the pace bowling unit has taken a dent.

Mohammed Siraj has been revealed in the most extended format in the recent past, yet his white-ball statistics tell another story.

All-rounder of Australia Daniel Christian, who will be looking at his T20 trophy title in his cabinet, will put less pressure on Kohli and De Villiers.

Predictions for IPL 2021:

No team has released more players than RCB, but the charismatic duo Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are leading them once again. Eight miserable overtaking should be provided by the spinning team Adam Zampa and Yuzvendra Chahal. Still, the challengers hope that Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj will succeed more in the overflow of death because seam bowling has been their heels for a long time. If Kohli and de Villiers can go back to previous levels, this will undoubtedly be a good RCB season. New to this trial success, Washington Sundar wants to demonstrate that it can be the all-rounding company that RCB must eventually assert its initial IPL tag.

Probable Playing XIs of Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Virat Kohli (Captain), Devdutt Padikkal, AB de Villiers (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Dan Christian, Pavan Deshpande, Washington Sundar, Harshal Patel, Kylie Jamieson, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.
