Royal Challengers have already retained C.H.Gayle during the Pre auction period and hence cannot buy a foreign player .   The number of players has been increased from 30 to 33 per team in the squad . Also 2 new Indian players can be added to the roster .

RCB has already made a mark and the opponents are already making their                      pre- Rehabiliation Measures as Gayle Storm is said to hit all cities of the country. The only Suspense remaining is Which players can be brought by the RCB with the remaining money in the purse in the upcoming Auction on Feb 4th. Choose ur pick :)

As the tension is rising in the air ..... Game for more .... Cheer RCB a grand Success and this time it will be a " Team Effort " rather a one storm show ..... RCB fan club Guarentees that :) No more criticism about the One man army in the team . We will prove all the players are well equipped and talented guys to make way for another Dramatic DLF- IPL 5.

" Get Ready Folks "  Game 4 GREEN :)
