Other than the fact that 21-year-old Shreyanka Patil made history by becoming the first Indian cricketer to be offered a contract in an overseas league before making her international debut and taking the most wickets in the 2023 edition of the WCPL, she also made history by etching her name in the history books by earning the Purple Cap in the 2024 edition of the WPL, by scalping 13 wickets in eight innings at an average of 12.07 while having an economy rate of 7.30, which led her franchise to win its debut trophy in the WPL. 

RCB's Unbox Event which took place at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on March 19, was an occasion which was filled with mirth and good vibes; with the men's team giving a guard of honour for winning the franchise's debut trophy, the women's team doing a lap around the ground with the trophy, RCB's new jersey for IPL 2024 getting unveiled to one and all, and R. Vinay Kumar being inducted to RCB's Hall of Fame.
