Royal Challengers Bangalore, one of the most popular teams of the Indian Premier League, has had a very exciting 2024. After the first half, RCB’s chances of qualification for IPL-2024 were reduced to less than 1%, but despite this, the team qualifies for the playoffs due to its good performance.

The opening match of IPL 2024 was played between defending champion Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, who were waiting for their first trophy for the last 17 years, in which CSK won the match by six wickets. RCB franchise changed its name from Royal Challengers Bangalore to Royal Challengers Bangaluru this season but apart from the name, there was no change in the performance of the team.

Faf du Plessis lead RCB, winning only one game in the first eight games and facing defeat in seven games. But the men in red made a comeback by winning the next six consecutive matches and qualified for the IPL-2024 playoffs with 14 points in the points table.

In Eliminator-1, Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals were in front of Bengaluru, who won the match by four wickets and showed RCB out of the race for the finals. Batting first, Faf Duplessis and company could score only 172 runs in 20 overs, which Rajasthan chased in 19 overs.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise has a good opportunity to strengthen the squad. There is a mega auction before IPL-2025 in which all the players will be put in the auction. The management needs good batsmen, all-rounders in the middle order and good bowlers in the bowling department.
