It was almost three weeks ago that squads of each franchise were finalised after the IPL auctions. A total of 62 players were sold on an action-packed day in Kolkata. There were teams who went in with settled squads and just plugged in some holes while there were a few teams that went through a revamp.

In the end, all teams now have at least 21 players in their squad and they will be busy jotting down various combinations. Each team has its own strengths and weakness but there are particular players who contribute to those strengths and weaknesses as well.

Thus, here we look at the strongest and the weakest capped player of each IPL team for the upcoming 2020 season of the IPL.

RCB: Strongest – AB de Villiers, Weakest – Mohammed Siraj

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have often been a team of big superstars but they’ve failed to deliver as a unit. They’ve flattered to deceive over the last few seasons and they will continue to search for the elusive IPL title in 2020. They have a few excellent T20 players but none better than AB de Villiers. There is skipper Virat Kohli but few can match the madness de Villiers brings to the table.

He can change games in no time and has been a big part of RCB since 2011. He’s been excellent for them in the last few years and had a wonderful 2019 as well. The South African star scored 1580 runs last year which is the second-most by any batsman in T20 cricket. He averaged 52.66 and also had a strike-rate of 156.90. De Villiers had a significant impact almost every time he walked out to bat.

Meanwhile, the weakest capped link in RCB seems to be Mohammed Siraj. There’s no doubt about the promise but he hasn’t had the best of times in the IPL. The Hyderabad-born pacer has played three IPL seasons so far, including two for RCB and he’s been very expensive. He has an economy of 9.20. For RCB, Siraj has taken 18 wickets from 20 games.
