It has been a roller coaster ride for RCB in the first ten years of IPL.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have tried and tested every bit of their squad in past ten years. Still, they have been few inches away from IPL Title. So this time around, in order to win IPL 2018 title, the team will have to build a team which can complete their dream. Chinnaswamy Stadium is a small ground comparatively. Though RCB had a firey batting line-up, their bowling attack failed to defend the score many times and vice a versa. So RCB needs to balance their team in order to stand a chance to win IPL 2018. Royal Challengers Bangalore have spent a record-breaking fee for Virat Kohli (17 crores). While retention of Sarfaraz Khan has come by surprise. How many surprises are there in the bag?
