Despite having some of the most explosive batsmen in world cricket, Bangalore are yet to win an IPL trophy.

Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers are nightmares for the best of bowlers and add to that list Shane Watson, and you might want to put all your money on this team.

Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh and Stuart Binny are three Indian cricketers, who will have to play a role for the team this season.

Bangalore dealt a major blow after their bowling spearhead Mitchell Starc was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury.

The onus is now on Kane Richardson, Adam Milne, Yuzvendra Chahal to restrict the oppositions from posting big totals on board.
