IPL 2015: Royal Challengers Bangalore team preview

IPL 2015: Royal Challengers Bangalore team preview
IPL 2015, Royal Challenger Bangalore is the strong team in every tournament but still hunting for their maiden title. Owned by Vijay Malya, RCB want to lift the title this time. Daniel Vettori is the coach and Virat Kohli is captain.

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. Lack of quality spinner is a minus point for them after Muralitharan retirement. They want to make it big with the bowling in IPL 2015. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore Retained squad - Virat Kohli, AB de Villers(SA), Chris Gayle(WI), Mitchell Starc(AUS), Varun Aaron, Nic Maddinson(AUS), Yuzvendra Singh Chahal, Rilee Rossouw(SA), Vijay Zol, Yogesh Takawale, Ashoke Dinda, Abu Nechim Ahmed, Harshal Patel, Sandeep Warrier, Manvinder Bisla, Iqbal Abdullah
