Every season a lot of people put their money on the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Boasting of the trusted international specialists, the team walks out as the best team on paper every season. However, the scenario completely changes on-field as the team fails to deliver. This story has witnessed no change in the past 12 years.

Ahead of the season, the franchise owners changed their team logo, in a bid to change the fortunes as well. However, there need to be some tough calls from the team management as well, if the team has any chance of ending its title drought this year. There are many underrated players raring to go, who can help the team become a destructible force.

Such players need to be given more chances in the playing XI. Let us take a look at 5 such underrated players, who can turn out to be the match-winner for the team in this season.

Here’s the list:

1. Pawan Negi

Pawan Negi has been a part of various IPL franchises since his debut in 2012. However, the left-arm spin all-rounder is highly underrated. He played seven games last season but got to bowl only in four games. Except for one game, Negi was economical throughout, and also provided crucial breakthroughs.

Negi can form a match-winning pair with Yuzvendra Chahal. He can choke the runs from one end, which will help Chahal to scalp more wickets. The 27-year-old is the most experienced Indian spinner in the squad, which will also help the team while bowling on flat tracks of Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Negi deserves to get more frequent and consistent chances this season. He was recently injured in the DY Patil tournament when the ball hit his face, but the franchise would hope that he is fit soon.
