Starting XI for RCB in IPL 2023: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have enjoyed two fantastic IPL seasons under former South Africa captain Faf Du Plessis and Mike Hesson – Sanjay Bangar. In the last three seasons, they have made the playoffs but failed in the knockout stages. They hope to rectify that in the current Tata IPL season.

RCB didn’t need to make many adjustments because their last IPL roster seemed balanced. The Bengaluru franchise performed poorly in the December IPL mini-auctions. They signed England international Will Jacks for 3.2 crores at the auctions and fast bowler Reece Topley as a backup to David Willey and Josh Hazlewood. RCB should do well in the IPL. RCB will see this season as another chance to win the IPL trophy, which has eluded them since 2008. Is it? Royal Challengers will play Mumbai Indians in an evening game on April 2 at home. That stated, let’s examine the Challengers’ likely starting XI against Mumbai in IPL 2023. They may use the same players from the IPL 2022 Qualifier 2 loss to Rajasthan Royals.

IPL 2023 predicted starting lineup for RCB:

Openers: Faf Du Plessis, Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli’s IPL 2022 season wasn’t up to his high standards. He only averaged 22.73 in 16 games, which isn’t very good, but his T20I performances for India were outstanding. He scored the most runs for India in both the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup. More importantly, he has enjoyed playing in the white-ball format. After all, Virat is the IPL player with the most runs (6624), and he could get even more this season.

The captain of RCB, Faf Du Plessis, has been a reliable player in the IPL for almost a decade, and he is expected to be the team’s opener. With over 3400 IPL runs between them, Faf and Virat can be a scary pair for the other team if they work well together.

Middle-order: Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik

The Indian player Rajat Patidar, who has never played for his country, was a big surprise for RCB last season. Patidar joined RCB as a replacement player after not being chosen at the 2022 Auctions. The rest, as they say, is history. He scored 333 runs in 8 games at a strike rate of over 152, including a sensational 112* against Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator. He should be RCB’s third batsman this season, after the dangerous Glenn Maxwell, who has scored more than 800 runs since he joined the team in 2021.

Mahipal Lomror is a good player who bats lower in the order. He should play a bigger role this year than he did last year. Dinesh Karthik, a veteran, will be the wicketkeeper for RCB because of how well he did in the last season. When he scored an amazing 330 runs at a strike rate of nearly 180 and an average of 55.

All-rounders: Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga

Wanindu Hasaranga is one of the most sought-after spinners in T20, and if he is healthy, he will be put right into the RCB team. He has been a great bowler for Sri Lanka, and he got off to a great start with the Challengers in the IPL. Last season, the leg-spinner took 26 wickets in 16 games, including a 5-wicket haul. He is expected to play a big role for the team again this IPL.

Shahbaz Ahmed has shown that he can do a lot of different things for the RCB team over the last three years. In 29 games, he has gotten 13 wickets and 279 runs for the team.

Bowlers: Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj

Harshal Patel has become one of the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s biggest stars. The medium-pace bowler has taken 51 wickets in 30 games over the last two seasons. He should be a key part of RCB’s bowling attack. His changes in speed and style are a big plus, and they have fooled many batters over and over again. Mohammad Siraj is the best bowler in one-day internationals (ODIs), and he has gotten much better with white balls. He will lead this fast bowling attack.

Josh Hazlewood, an Australian pacer, is last but not least. The tall fast bowler was a big part of RCB’s good run with the ball last season. He took 20 wickets in 12 games, and Hazlewood will play even though he has been hurt recently.
