Royal Challengers Banglore have had one of the best batting line-ups in the IPL. The team has made three final appearances in the IPL but have not yet been able to win an IPL title. Kohli has been leading the Indian cricket team in all the three formats and he is doing the job pretty well. While the last season was not something RCB would like to remember, a new season always comes with new hopes and excitement.
RCB retained their three very crucial players including AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Sarfaraz Khan. They came into the 2018 IPL auction with a purse of Rs 49 crores and they spent 48.85 crores. The English all-rounder Chris Woakes became their most expensive purchase of the two-day auction which cost them Rs 7.4 crore.
Here's their complete squad
Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Chris Woakes, Yuzvendra Singh Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Brendon McCullum, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Quinton De Kock, Mohammed Siraj, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Colin De Grandhomme, M. Ashwin, Parthiv Patel, Moeen Ali, Mandeep Singh, Manan Vohra, Pawan Negi, Tim Southee, Kulwant Khejroliya, Aniket Choudhary, Pavan Deshpande, Anirudha Ashok Joshi.
