It’s been just about 10 days since the IPL 2021 got underway but the manner in which perennial underachievers Royal Challengers Bangalore have started their campaign has been a delight. For the first time in their history, RCB have won their first three matches and already beaten the likes of defending champions Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. Fittingly, they are sitting at the top of the points tally, remaining the only unbeaten team so far.
The begs the question: What is it that RCB have done differently from the past season(s) that has resulted in such an impressive start? Well, the answer(s) lies in how they shored up their squad at the auction in February this year and the strides taken by bowlers.
