AB De Villiers has remained the bedrock of their side's batting line-up for nine years; however, has not been able to guide them to the title. Now this time everyone hopes this team will name the title. The franchise has not finished above sixth on the last three occasions, ending their campaign on the 8th spot in 2019 and 2017. The side had managed to reach the finals of 2009, 2011, and 2016 edition, but ended up on the losing side in the summit clash against SunRisers Hyderabad. Death bowling has always been their Achilles heel; however, it seems they have all their bases covered for the upcoming season. In fact, they are one of the few teams to have consistently disappointed their fans.

"I still feel that RCB look a little batting-heavy".

"It's a tricky one because we say that every season "aah, this year is our team". (But) I promise you, "it's different", that's all I can tell you", said De Villiers. "I am feeling better than ever so I am looking to get out there with the boys", de Villiers said in a video posted on RCB's official Twitter handle. "But one thing that you will see a little different is that the bowlers will be happy because they will not have to play 7 matches at the Chinnaswamy Stadium", he explained.

Padikkal - the highest run-scorer in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy and Vijay Hazare 50-over tournament - is hopeful that he can carry his good form into the IPL. It's not just AB is going to play every game, Parthiv is going to play every game or Dale Steyn.

"Virat and coaches can find the best playing XI, there are options in every single department, be it batting, bowling, and fielding", he added. "So it's exciting", the Pretoria born said as quoted by India Today.

"We have worked so hard, we have a good work ethic, it really feels like everyone has bought into this hard-working environment".

On being asked about how hard it was to come back after the long hiatus, de Villiers said, "It is natural to get breaks here and there, sometimes the schedule allows a period of no cricket for two months or so".
