Predicted Royal Challengers Bangalore Playing 11 for their first IPL 2022 Match


RCB Playing 11: The 15th season of IPL is around the corner and all the ten franchises have already begun training hard with their respective squads and so has Royal Challengers Bangalore with only one moto – ‘Ee sala cup Namde’. With Virat Kohli relinquishing the leadership role, the Royal Challengers will be led by Faf du Plessis and it will be interesting to watch if the change in leadership role brings some change in fortune or not.

Predicted RCB Playing 11 for their first IPL 2022 Match

RCB Playing 11 (likely)

  1. Faf du Plessis (C)
  2. Virat Kohli
  3. Anuj Rawat
  4. Glenn Maxwell
  5. Mahipal Lomror
  6. Dinesh Karthik (WK)
  7. Wanindu Hasaranga
  8. Shahbaz Ahmad
  9. Harshal Patel
  10. Josh Hazlewood
  11. Mohammed Siraj

Royal Challengers Bangalore retained 3 players in Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Mohammed Siraj, and signing in a veteran in Faf du Plessis is one of the smartest moves by the team management in the mega auction. In Du Plessis and Kohli, Bangalore have a solid opening pair.

In the middle order, RCB will once again rely upon Glenn Maxwell who had one of the best IPL seasons in the last edition. The management has also picked up Dinesh Karthik for the role of a keeper as well as a finisher and if former KKR skipper manages to prove his worth, this might be the year for RCBians to taste the glory.

In the bowling department, Bangalore managed to sign back Harshal Patel – who was one of the main reasons for RCB’s third-place finish in the last edition and also won the Purple Cap. He will once again lead the pace attack along with Mohd Siraj and Josh Hazlewood.
