Royal Challengers Bangalore have long been recognized as one of the top teams in the Indian Premier League. Despite being one of the top sides, they came under fire for their inability to win a title.
In fact, they made it to the finals on three occasions in their journey. Unfortunately, they failed to get over the line against Deccan Chargers Hyderabad (now-defunct franchise), Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Royal Challengers Bangalore qualified for the playoffs under the captaincy of Faf du Plessis in the fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. RCB finished fourth on the points table with eight wins and six defeats, collecting 16 points.
Royal Challengers Bangalore knocked out the third-placed Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator. However, they were outsmarted by Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier.
RCB did not invest in SA20 and ILT20 to focus on the WPL
Meanwhile, in the latest development, it has been learnt that Royal Challengers Bangalore has shown interest in developing their team in the Women’s Premier League.
According to ESPNcricinfo, the RCB franchise did not invest in SA20 and ILT20 to focus on the Women’s Premier League, which is indeed a good decision taken by the Royal Challengers Bangalore team management.
Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) disclosed that as many as five new teams will be participating in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) to kick-start a new era in women’s cricket.
The inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League will begin in the month of March. For the record, the tournament could last for more than two weeks.
The ultimate idea is to complete the WPL season before the start of the sixteenth edition of the IPL in order to make way for the venues for both competitions. Meanwhile, the tentative dates for the tournament last from March 4 to 24 and it is said that the competition will last as many as 21 days.
Hats off to the dedication of #RCB franchise to somehow get that trophy with the Bengaluru team.. https://t.co/7CYoeT6gl1Advertisement
