One of the most popular teams in the Indian Premier League, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will hoping to end their trophy drought, finally in 2024. But the Faf du Plessis-led side hasn't made its job easy with an average auction which created more headaches than find solutions. In 2023, the Bengaluru-based franchise missed out on the playoffs and had to settle for a sixth place finish, after losing their final league game.

But in 2024, RCB would hope to maximise their new players while veterans like Du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Mohammed Siraj showcase their class to win the trophy home. So, ahead of IPL 2024, let's look at RCB best playing XI.
