Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one of the most loved IPL teams, but it has not managed to win the IPL title even once. RCB goes after players that it feels will add great balance to the squad, even if it means paying huge amounts of money.

RCB really went after players like Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell, and Yuvraj Singh; the ones that the team thought could win games consistently.

RCB’s Most Expensive Players

The following is the list of the most expensive RCB players in IPL history:

Kyle Jamieson – 15 Crore – NZ

Kyle Jamieson, the talented all-rounder, is the most expensive buy for RCB, going for 15 crore in the 2021 IPL auction. He was an in-form player, and many IPL teams decided to go after him in the auctions.

Kyle Jamieson had a below-par IPL season, picking up only 9 wickets in the seven matches that he played. With respect to the amount that he was paid, Jamieson turned out to be an average player.

Glenn Maxwell – 14.25 Crore – Australia

Glenn Maxwell, one of the most destructive batters in T20 cricket, was bought by the RCB for 14.25 crore in the 2021 IPL auction. He had a successful IPL 2021, where he scored more than 500 runs. Plus, Glenn Maxwell is also handy with the ball and can pick up crucial wickets with his off-spins.

If RCB is to win its first IPL trophy, Glenn Maxwell’s form will be crucial. Cricket fans will hope that Glenn Maxwell and they have a winning IPL season in 2024.

Yuvraj Singh – 14 Crore – India

Yuvraj Singh, one of the most elegant and powerful southpaws in the world, is known for his never-give-up attitude. When this talented all-rounder went under the hammer in the 2014 IPL auction, he was picked up by RCB for a massive 14 crore price.

Yuvraj Singh had an IPL season to forget in  2014, where he managed to pick up only 5 wickets and score 376 runs. If RCB is to win the IPL for the first time, its talented players like Glenn Maxwell and Virat Kohli will need to take their game a notch higher.

AB de Villiers – 11 Crore – SA

AB de Villiers, easily one of the most feared batters in the world, made a move to RCB after he was bought for a whopping 11 crore. His ability to hit the ball wherever he wanted made him the most destructive batter. AB de Villiers was equally good in the field, saving many runs for his team and taking impossible catches.

AB de Villiers made his mark at the RCB, scoring 4491 runs at an average of over 40 and a strike rate of 150. Now that AB de Villiers is not in RCB, Virat Kohli will have a greater role to play if RCB is to win its first IPL title.

Chris Morris – 10 Crore – South Africa

Chris Morris, a star South African all-rounder, was in great form when RCB bought him for 10 crore in the 2020 IPL auction. He had an amazing season with RCB, picking up 11 wickets and helping the team finish fourth on the points table. Chris Morris also scored some handy runs and that too rapidly.

If RCB finds performing all-rounders like Chris Morris, the team could win its first IPL title.

RCB Players Who Could Have a Brilliant IPL 2024 Season

The following is the list of players who could have a great IPL 2024 season for RCB:

  • Virat Kohli
  • Mohammed Siraj
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Mahipal Lomror

Concluding Thoughts

RCB is one of the most followed IPL teams in the world, thanks to popular players like Virat Kohli. In the 2024 IPL auctions, RCB will need to set the right bidding strategy and form a team that will have a perfect mix of youth and experience.
