Why Did RCB Play Only 3 Overseas Players?

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils faced off in the last match of the group stage in the IPL 2017. Both, Challengers ad Daredevils, are already out of the tournament, and it was a matter of pride for both the teams.

“We haven’t played well this season. But this is our last game, and we want to go out with a win. This might be our last game as a group”, said Virat Kohli at the toss.

Although RCB have one of the strongest overseas roster in the tournament, Virat could only play 3 of his foriegn players against the Delhi Daredevils. “We are only playing three overseas players today. Most of them are injured or have gone home.”, he added.


While AB deVilliers, Tabraiz Shamsi and Tymal Mills have already flown back to play for their national teams, Adam Milne and Samuel Badree added to a long list of injured RCB players this season. But that didn’t hinder RCB’s performance as they won by 10 runs getting Delhi all-out for 151.
