Despite a stellar line-up, RCB has not been able to win the IPL trophy even once. This year, many RCB fans are expecting the Kohli squad to break the IPL jinx. On Wednesday, another RCBU player tested positive for coronavirus. Daniel Sams has isolated himself after his test report.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is set to face defending champion Mumbai Indians at the IPL opener on April 9. A lot depends on how Kohli and AB go beyond the usual action and come up with a new playbook.
