RCB have only reached the final of the tournament twice, once in 2009 and then again in 2016. In 2009, they lost to Adam Gilchrist-led Deccan Chargers, while in 2016, David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad beat them to win their maiden title. Over the years, RCB have struggled to make a winning combination. Virat Kohli, who led the team from 2013 to 2021, relinquished the captaincy ahead of the 15th edition to pass the baton to Faf du Plessis. In IPL 2022, they finished in the last 4 and played the playoffs, but once again failed to enter the finals.

All eyes will be on Virat, Faf, Dinesh Karthik and Rajat Patidar this year as RCB look to win their maiden title. Despite not winning the trophy once, it is also true that RCB remains one of the biggest franchises in not only this league but has massive fan base across the world.

With the league returning to India and that too in the home and away format, expect the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to erupt with RCB and Kohli chants. There is also an RCB vs CSK match happening on April 17 and expect the stadium to be packed with MS Dhoni and Kohli fans.
