The 12th season of the Indian Premier League is set to begin from March 23. This year’s tournament once again promises to be an extravaganza and a treat for all the fans of the cricketing fraternity.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one of the few franchises in the IPL that has never won the beautiful trophy. Every time they come up with a strong squad, but fails to win the trophy every single time.
This time RCB would be desperate to win the title with the help of some quality T20 players. They have some great all-rounders in their squad in the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube and Pawan Negi.
These players would like to give their best shot under the captaincy of Indian skipper Virat Kohli and win their maiden IPL title this time.

Here are the most valuable players of RCB for IPL 2019:
3. Marcus Stoinis
Stoinis is one of the best all-rounders of Australia when it comes to limited overs format. RCB got the services of Stoinis from Kings XI Punjab through the IPL trading window. The addition of the 29-year-old player will strengthen RCB’s batting and bowling.
However Stoinis’ IPL numbers are not at all good. So far he has played 19 IPL matches and has scored 262 runs at an average of 23.81 and strike rate of 125.96. With the ball, Stoinis has picked up 13 wickets at an average of 32.61 and economy rate of 9.52.
But in the ongoing Big Bash League, Stoinis has been in red-hot form. He has scored 427 runs from 10 matches at an excellent average of 63.14 and strike rate of 135.17. With the ball he has so far picked 14 wickets at an average of 14.07. RCB will desperately hope that Stoinis continues this excellent form in the 2019 IPL as well.
