Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is set to commence their IPL 2024 journey with the season opener against Chennai Super Kings on March 22. As anticipation builds, let's delve into a preview of the IPL 2024 RCB team players list with price, encompassing team strategies, and potential lineups for both home and away encounters, along with key impact players.

Regardless of their illustrious history, RCB is yet to clinch an IPL title. Despite reaching the finals three times, they've faltered at the final hurdle on each occasion. In the previous season, a Shubman Gill century dashed their playoff aspirations, narrowly missing out on a spot in the Eliminator.

RCB concluded IPL 2023 sitting in sixth place, securing victory in seven of their 14 league matches. Struggles in the middle order and a lack of bowling support for Mohammed Siraj plagued their campaign, resulting in their failure to advance to the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.

Notably, they found more success on the road than at home, with tight losses to CSK and LSG at the Chinnaswamy Stadium proving decisive. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis emerged as pivotal contributors, amassing 1369 runs. Their partnership, alongside Glenn Maxwell, accounted for a significant 70% of the team's runs in 2023.
