  • This year, RCB vested their interest in the services of quality bowlers such as Kane Richardson, Chris Morris and Isuru Udana.

  • Aaron Finch’s presence will bolster the batting lineup furthermore.

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, Virat Kohli, is the all-time leading run-scorer in the Indian Premier League (IPL).


However, Kohli has been unfortunate not to be able to clinch the IPL title even once, despite taking part in all twelve seasons, donning the RCB jersey.

With the announcement of the 13th season of the IPL in the UAE, starting September 19, RCB will be looking forward to rectifying their record.


Unlike the previous seasons, this time around, Kohli will be able to field a balanced RCB attack.

Previously, the Bengaluru-based franchise backed a batting-heavy batting lineup, often overlooking their shortcomings in the bowling department.

Now, former Australian speedster, Brett Lee, has dispensed a piece of golden advice for Kohli, to help RCB win their maiden IPL title.


“I just want Kohli to go out there and enjoy his cricket, take all the pressure off himself as a captain and player,” Lee said in the latest episode of Star Sports’ Cricket Connected chat show.

Their star-studded lineup will be bolstered by the presence of Aaron Finch and Chris Morris this season.

“Because he is so good at that level, I think sometimes with all the pressure going around in the team, people are failing, he tries to get all the players on his back and tries to carry them. All the RCB squad should help out in taking all the pressure off Kohli,” Lee added.


Cricketer-turned-commentator, Sanjay Manjrekar, reckoned that the presence of Finch in the RCB camp would assist Kohli while leading the RCB side.

“Aaron Finch is the guy whom I hope can give them a little bit of steadiness. They have a lot of class, flash and brilliance and then Aaron Finch can become the guy who can hold it all together,” Manjrekar opined.

The other stars in the RCB line-up include Moeen Ali, Isuru Udana, Kane Richardson and Dale Steyn.
