Batting: they have most devastating batting order with Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. New Players Dinesh Karthik, Subramaniam Badrinath and Daren Sammy will strengthen their middle overs. Traded player Manvinder Bisla may open batting with Chris Gayle.

Bowling: Missing Starc for first few matches is big blow for RCB. With the absence of Starc and Adam Milne Sean Abbott of Australia may find place in final eleven Varun Aaron and Ashok Dinda will bear the fast bowling attack.
