RCB is the most balanced IPL team this year. They have good batsmen's and bowlers. AB Devilliers, Sarfaraz Khan, McCullum, Kohli will be a nightmare for any world class bowling line up. They also have some good experienced spinners. Washington Sundar who played for India in Nidahas trophy was impressive in the series. He was awarded with Man of the Series. He will be surely an advantage for the skipper to bowl in the power plays. If the batting order produced some good knocks, it will be easier for the bowlers to win the match.
