The RCB management always believes in involving the fans in every critical decision they make. It was no different when it came to retaining players for this season, as the management went straight back to the fans for their opinion.

RCBians, we asked you to analyze our team's past performances with RCB Game Plan and we were thrilled with your response! You told us where our strengths lie and what are our areas of improvement. We also analysed your mentions on various social media platforms and found that Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers topped the list of players you wished to be retained.

And guess what? We heard you! Our Chairman, Dr. Vijay Mallya was delighted to retain the “Terrific Trio”. Commenting on the decision, Dr. Mallya said, “This formidable trio of players have contributed significantly to RCB's past performance and are match-winners in their own right. Their retention means that we have a strong platform to build an exceptional team.”

Here’s what our beloved Gayle had to say:
