Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers said that the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) could win multiple Indian Premier League (IPL) titles once they start winning. The Faf du Plessis-led side is yet to win the title despite having made it to three finals since the beginning as well. However, RCB finished third in the 2022 season and they have retained most of their players before the mega-auction.
However, they have a strong core and Virat Kohli’s return to form is a positive for them. While talking about that he added that RCB have to win their first title to make a winning momentum as well.

De Villiers said in a video released by Star Sports: “It’s been how many seasons now? Quite a few, 14 or 15 or whatever. So, they would love to break the shackles. I think if RCB wins this one then, they’ll probably win two, three, four quickly but let’s wait and see what happens, T20 cricket is a bit of a gamble sometimes, anything can happen. Especially knockout games, but hopefully RCB’s turn is around the corner.”
However, he recently visited Bengaluru to discuss his new role with the side and he also confirmed that he will be there at the venue alongside Gayle for the first home game as well.

AB de Villiers said: “I absolutely love RCB, it’s meant the world for me, it’s changed my life. I have been there since 2011, I’ve made friends for life, it’s part of me and my family and that’s what we do, you know? We are all RCBians.”
