Royal Challengers Bangalore underwent a major overhaul after the last season as they released as many as 10 players from their squad and as a result, had the second-largest purse for the Player Auction. The Virat Kohli-led team started with 35.7 crores in the bank and have used it wisely, including some brilliant players in their team.

IPL 2016 was the last time Royal Challengers Bangalore made it to the finals of the competition, which was the franchises’ first appearance in the summit clash under current captain Virat Kohli. The team have under-performed under the Indian skipper but will look to build on their playoff finish last season and mount a better challenge this time around.
