Dr. Vijay Mallya and UB group owned team RCB is coached by the former Indian Bowlers Venkatesh Prasad and the CEO is the cricket intellectual Charu Sharma. In the IPL tournament the team is going to represent the city of Bangalore. The team owner DR. Vijay Mallya has purchased the team for US$111.6 million. It is the second highest bid.
The batting line-up looks conventional with the likes of Wasim Jaffer, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Jacques Kallis who are seasoned athletes but may not be the most proficient in the Twenty20 format. However, their experience though could give them an edge in crunch situations in the tournament. In contrast, the bowling lineup is more suited to the Twenty20 format. The likes of Anil Kumble, Zaheer Khan, Nathan Bracken, Abdur Razzak and Dale Steyn make for a potent bowling attack. A lethal combination of bouncers, in-swingers, yorkers and leg breaks makes Bangalore Royal Challengers one of the best bowling sides in the league.
There are some icon players in the team. Rahul Dravid, Jacques Kallis, West Indian Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Nathan Bracken, Cameron White, Mark Boucher and Dale Steyn. I think this sequence is proving that how strong the RCB is in the opening IPL tournament!
Royal Challengers Bangalore will be taken part in the robin round league. The total tournament has divided in two parts one is robin round and other is knock-out.
