Indian T20 League: Bangalore Team

There is definitely an end-of-an-era feel to this Indian T20 League season as far as Bangalore are concerned. Having been captain for nearly two-third of the games Bangalore have played since the competition began in 2008, Virat Kohli stepped down as captain after the last season. There is no obvious successor either. AB de Villiers, whose spectacular batting has lit up the league for over a decade, retired from all forms of cricket last year.

Facing an uncertain future, Bangalore’s attention will be on the current season, and how they can make it to the play-offs for the third year in a row and win it all.

Other teams like Mumbai and Chennai may take that for granted, but Bangalore have been very inconsistent over the last 13 years. After losing a close final to Hyderabad in 2016, they finished last, 6th and last in the next three seasons respectively. It was only in 2020 and 2021 that they just sneaked back into the play-offs.

The batting, once the envy of the league when Chris Gayle was also in tandem with Kohli and de Villiers, is still strong, but Bangalore have never quite cracked the bowling code. Harshal Patel, who leads the bowling charts with 17 wickets so far this year, is only the third Bangalore bowler to take more than 50 wickets in the history of the competition.

Sanjay Bangar heads the coaching group and is assisted by former Indian international player Sridharan Sriram and Australian Adam Griffith in the batting and bowling departments.

Team Bangalore Origin

One of the founder-members of the Indian T20 League in 2008, Bangalore have the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in the heart of the city as their home ground. However, they have a mediocre record there, with just 42 wins in 86 games.

Team Bangalore Owners: Indian T20 League

Owned by United Spirits Limited, Bangalore are the fourth-most valuable franchise in the league, according to the latest figures published in 2021.

Faf du Plessis: Bangalore Team Captain

Even at the age of 37, Faf was one of the most dependable batters for the Chennai team until last year. He scored 633 runs at an average of 45.21, finishing second in the list of leading run scorers. The South African batter is a technically strong player and can be adept at scoring runs in every position he bats in and can be a nightmare for bowlers once he gets into his groove. Though he did not get selected for South Africa’s squad for the T20 World Cup 2021, Faf conveyed his message to South African team selectors by giving a Player of the Match-winning performance in the final of the Indian T20 League 2021.
