WPL 2023: All you need to know about Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB Schedule, full Squad, Captain, Probable playing 11, Fixture, and all you need to know about Royal Challengers Bangalore: There are many cricket franchises and cricket fans in the world, but the magnitude of loyalty and devotion the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise has received from the supporters since the beginning is completely unquantifiable.

Days from now, the moment Smriti Mandhana’s name was put up for bid on the first season of the WPL would be remembered as a turning point for women’s cricket. As Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore squared up for the Indian opener, the events could not have gotten off to a better start.

Mandhana is now paid at elite levels in women’s sports after RCB reached her as the primary target with a whooping worth of Rs 3.40 crore. Must say, RCB is mad over jersey no 18 and so for a reason. Ellyse Perry, Richa Ghosh, and Renuka Singh Thakur were later added.

Here we are about to discuss the Schedule, squad, probable playing 11, and more information about WPL’s Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise.

For only four players, Royals spent Rs 8.50 crore. But the strategy was obvious to all gathered around the table. Make every effort early on for global stars, and then rely on their scouting network to identify domestic prospects. In order to assess the talent in the domestic competitions, Malolan Rangarajan and former India star Vanitha VR, who are both a part of the scouting setup, had been working diligently well before the WPL tenders.

It, therefore, came as no surprise when they added some of the pool’s top uncapped talent. They also acquired Heather Knight and Sophie Devine, two international captains, for the base price. The team of Bangalore, led by Mandhana, undoubtedly boasts the best combination of superstars from abroad and Indian talent.
