RCB take on SRH in their first game of IPL 2020 on 21st September and have been training hard ahead of their opening encounter in Dubai. There is a lot of talk revolving around the RCB camp that their star batsman AB de Villiers will assume wicket-keeping duties for them in IPL 2020.
This could also mean their young star Devdutt Padikkal could break into the starting XI to add some firepower at the top of the order. RCB fans will be optimistic about their chances in IPL 2020 and will be hoping that their side can clinch their maiden IPL title in the UAE.
RCB fans turn up in huge numbers every year at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium and the franchise will be missing their '12th Man Army' this edition as IPL 2020 has moved to the UAE and will be played behind closed doors.
RCB will play 3 matches in Sharjah, 4 in Abu Dhabi and 7 games in Dubai in IPL 2020.
