RCB have made it to final of the tournament only 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 side from 2013 to 2021, relinquished captaincy ahead of the 15th edition to pass on the baton to Faf du Plessis. In IPL 2022, they finished in last 4 and played the playoffs but yet again failed to enter the final.

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 even once, it is also true that RCB remain one of the biggest franchises in not just this league but has massive fan following all over the world.

With the league returning to India and also in the Home and Away format, expect M Chinnaswamy stadium to erupt with RCB and Kohli chants. There is a RCB vs CSK game too happening on April 17 and expect the stadium to be jam packed with MS Dhoni and Kohli fans.
