Top 5 Run Scorers For Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL History – 

In the history of Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore – RCB is the team that has the most fan following despite not winning the title even once. RCB makes great promises every year, but they fail to keep that.

The RCB team has a talented bunch of players. The side, which looks so good on paper, doesn’t perform well on the field. Every year, the fans of RCB wait to clinch the title. But their wait ends in disappointment.

This year, too, RCB has the team that can lift the IPL 2020 trophy in UAE. Just ahead of the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League, we have listed the top 5 highest run scorers for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the history of this cash-rich league tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Full IPL 2020 season schedule

  • Virat Kohli – The batting of Royal Challengers Bangalore has too relied on Skipper Virat Kohli. He has been the main stray of the batting line. The Indian team hasn’t been entirely reliant on King Kohli. India had MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, and Sachin Tendulkar earlier, and now the men in blue have the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul. So that’s why whenever Kohli plays for India, the pressure is not that much. But in the RCB camp, Kohli is the one who holds the batting together, which puts a lot of pressure on him. Kohli has scored the highest number of runs in the IPL history for RCB. He has been the permanent feature in the RCB camp since the first season of 2008. Virat has played 177 games, and he has scored 5412 runs for this franchise, and with that, he also has five centuries and 36 half-centuries to his name. Kohli has also made a record of scoring the most runs in a single IPL season. The King had scored 973 runs in the 2016 edition of this cash-rich league tournament. Due to which RCB reached their third final of this tournament.
  • AB de Villers – Another player who has supported Kohli well on and off the field for RCB is the former captain and player from South Africa, AB De Villers. He is the second batsmen in which the RCB camp is reliant. ABD is well known for incredible shots. He can play shots all around the ground, so ABD is known as a 360-degree player in International cricket. ABD joined the RCB camp in the 2011 season, and from then, he has been the go-to man for this franchise. Kohli and ABD have shared many memorable partnerships in this tournament. Many of those partnerships had come in the 2016 season when RCB reached the final of that edition. Till now, this South African legend has played 126 matches for RCB, and he has scored 3724 runs with the strike of 159.55. ABD has smashed two centuries and 30 half-centuries to his name so far.
  • Chris Gayle – In the T20 format, the Universal Boss is the most devastating batsman. There is no record which Gayle has made or broken in the shortest format. He is the first and the only play to smash 10,000 runs in T20. Gayle plays only the T20 form for West Indies right now after the retirement from the ODI and Test format. Thats how he has got the opportunity to play all the franchise league all over the world. In IPL, Gayle was the most valuable player for the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise from 2011 to 2017. He smashed unbeaten 175 runs, which is the highest score in the T20 format. In the 2013 season, Gayle achieved this fantastic feat against Pune Warriors India when he played for RCB. In that innings, Gayle smashed the fastest half-century and century as well. Gayle has played 85 matches for RCB, and in that, he has scored 3163 runs with a phenomenal average of 43.32. Gayle has scored six centuries, and he has also smashed 239 sixes for RCB with ease.
  • Jacques Kallis – A gem of a South Africa player, has been a great player for Royal Challengers Bangalore. As we all know, Jacques Kallis is the most fantastic all-rounder to play the game of cricket, and RCB were fortunate that this player represented their franchise. Talking about his IPL career, Kallis started his stint with the RCB franchise, and later in 2014, he ended his IPL career with Kolkata Knight Riders. But he was a crucial member of that franchise who worked in all the three aspects of the game. Kallis played just 42 games for this franchise. But he ended up gaining 1132 runs, and he also scored ten half-centuries to his name. He couldn’t score a century in IPL. His highest score was unbeaten 89 runs.
  • Rahul Dravid – India’s former captain and current head coach, Rahul Dravid, also features the list of top 5 run scorers for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Wall had led the RCB side in 2008. Dravid was the man who made all the things possible in cricket. He opened the batting in Test cricket. Despite being the number 3 batsman, Dravid opened the innings many times in Test cricket. When Ganguly asked Dravid to keep wickets behind the stumps, Dravid generously agreed to the captain’s call. In IPL, Dravid ended his career as the fifth-highest run-scorer for this franchise. Despite being a pure class Test and ODI player, The Wall played the T20 format with ease. He couldn’t strike the ball out of the park consistently, but he still managed to clear the ropes at least once when he played the matches for RCB. The former Indian skipper always fought a tough battle on the field, and he never says die attitude has helped him overcome many such encounters in IPL and International cricket. Dravid had played 83 IPL matches for TCB in his career. He scored those runs with a decent average of 26.41 and a magnificent strike rate of 122.84. Dravid also scored four half-centuries to his name.
