Strengths

The batting prowess of RCB has been a standout feature over the years, and IPL 2024 is no exception. With Kohli and du Plessis anchoring the innings, supported by Maxwell and Green’s explosive hitting, RCB possesses one of the most formidable batting line ups in the tournament.

Weaknesses

While their batting might shine, RCB’s Achilles’ heel lies in their bowling department. The departure of key bowlers like Josh Hazelwood and Wannindu Hasaranga has left a void, with the team banking on relatively unproven options like Lockie Ferguson and Tom Curran to fill the gaps.
