IPL 2020: RCB announces support staff for upcoming season
Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the very few teams to have not won a title since the inaugural edition of the lucrative Indian Premier League.
Players are giving their best, coaches are bringing the best out of players but the end result is something which hasn’t been coming for them.
They ended up as the runners of IPL 3 times. RCB led by Virat Kohli has qualified for the final a couple of times and last season, it was so disappointing as they finished at the bottom of the points tablem having won just 5 games.
RCB skipper has come under fire on numerous occasions for failing to lead the side properly and the results serve as the testament to the fact. A few seasons ago, he had replaced Daniel Vettori as the captain, but he hasn’t been able to turn the pages of the franchise.
Whatever has happened has happened for RCB. In order to start the upcoming season on a high, RCB have announced the support staff to change the ambience of the team.
Former Team India trainer Shanker Basu has made a sensational return to the club as he has been appointed as the strength and conditioning coach of the franchise for the IPL in 2020.
Evan Speechly, Malolan Rangarajan, Major Soumyadeep Pyne are listed as Team Physio, Head of Scouting and Team Manager respectively.
