Virat Kohli’s RCB would aim to create an impact in IPL 2021 as they are eagerly waiting to clinch a title since the inaugural season. With top-class players on their side for the upcoming season, they have a good chance of lifting their maiden title. Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson are the two players to watch out for in the fourteenth edition of the tournament. It would be interesting to see how Kohli forms the XI.
