In the 2023 season, despite boasting a star-studded squad featuring renowned names like Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine, Heather Knight, and Smriti Mandhana, RCB struggled to find their rhythm in WPL 2023, managing just two victories in eight matches. The team faced early elimination from the tournament, finishing fourth in the points table.

However, the 2024 season saw a resurgence for RCB as they significantly bettered their performance. Finishing the group stage in the third position, they secured qualification for the knockout stages for the first time in the tournament’s brief history. Winning four out of their eight group stage matches, RCB displayed a more consistent and determined approach on the field.

Key factors contributing to RCB’s improved performance in 2024 include the emergence of talents like Asha Shobhna as a wicket-taker, the impressive fielding and bowling prowess of Shreyanka Patil, and the all-round contributions of players like Georgia Wareham and Sophie Molineux. These positive developments have strengthened RCB’s squad and provided optimism for future success in the WPL.

In a tense, low-scoring, and closely contested eliminator, RCB came alive from the ashes, turning the tide and overpowering the defending champions Mumbai Indians, courtesy of yet another Ellyse Perry special and excellent death bowling. The dream is alive, well, and truly pulsating as Royal Challengers Bangalore are set to take on Delhi Capitals in the Final on the 17th of March, 2024.
