The Bangalore franchise is owned by Vijay Mallya s UB Group and coached by Ray Jennings.Led by Daniel Vettori, they are heavily dependent on Chris Gayle, who almost single-handedly took them to the final of the previous season.

RCB were runners-up in IPL 2009 and 2011 seasons which have been best performances in the tournament so far.

Their star Indian batsman Virat Kohli, with stupendous performances Down Under and in the recently-concluded Asia Cup, will no doubt be RCB s trump card in the fifth edition of the IPL, starting April 5.
