Royal Challengers Bangalore is an official team of Indian Premier League. The team has been the part of IPL since 2008. RCB is famous for big names in cricket. The squad has Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Aron Finch who has good reputation in T20 cricket. Chris Gayle also had been the part of the team.
The home city f the team is Bangalore, Karnataka originally named as Mysore. RCB played his all home ground matches in M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. It is strange the team holds both records, highest score 263/5 and lowest score 49.
RCB was the second most expensive team in first edition with $111.6 Million after Mumbai Indians $111.9 Million. Team faced a lot failures although it had best players of T20 cricket.
Despite having good names, RCB is unlucky to win any title. The team played the final for 3 times from 2009 to 2016 but remained runner-up all the time. In the second season, the team made it way to final and got the target of 144. But they remained unlucky and lost the title by 6 runs.

Batting Line: In 2019, the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad could not impress the fans too much. They were at No. 8 in points table. There was no player from RCB in first 5 top scorers. The same thing is for most fours list where there is no player form RCB in first 5 layers.
AB de Villiers was the only player from RCB to stand at No. 5 in most sixes list with 26 sixes. The same guy made 5 fifties and got 4th position in the table. The only century from RCB was made by Captain Virat Kohli.
Bowling Line: In bowlers, no one could impress the fans as there is no bowler from RCB in top 5 for taking most wickets. A good team is not the team with big names but with the in-form players. If we see 2019 records, we shall see lack of interaction between bowlers and batsmen.
In IPL 2020 auction, RCB picked the third most expensive player Christopher Morris for ₹10 crre.
