The Royal Challengers Bengaluru emerged as a Cinderella team in IPL 2024 as they seven out of their first eight games and then won six games on the bounce to complete a historic comeback to seal a spot in the playoffs. The Royal Challengers saw their best player, Virat Kohli, lead the side as he took home the Orange Cap by scoring 741 runs in 15 games as he revitalised his batting. 

Alongside Kohli, a few more stars shone bright and played instrumental parts in this historic turnaround. Looking ahead at the Mega Auction and the 2025 season, let us look at four players RCB could retain.

Mr RCB himself, Virat Kohli is expected to be retained as the top option by the Bengaluru-based franchise. Kohli has only played for RCB throughout his IPL career and is expected to continue over the next cycle as well. The 35-year-old is one of the fittest players in cricket and continues to dominate every format he plays, hence it is more than certain that Kohli continue playing for RCB.
