RCB IPL Team 2020 Players List, Squad: The new watchword in the Royal Challengers Bangalore side ahead of IPL 2020 is squad balance. Virat Kohli and Yuzvendra Chahal both said in recent interviews that the RCB unit looks more balanced than previous years. Among new acquisitions this year, Australian T20I captain Aaron Finch and South African all-rounder Chris Morris can be expected to play major roles as the side look to end their trophy-less run this year.

The team would start their campaign on a positive note when they lock horns with David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Stadium. Following a nightmarish 2019 season when they finished last, RCB seem to have much better balance but there ability to hit late in the innings is yet to be tested.
