Most Runs Against RCB: Top 5 Highest Run Getter against RCB

Most Runs Against RCB

Ever since the first edition of the IPL was played all the way back in 2008, one criticism that has always traveled with the Royal Challengers Bangalore is that their bowling attack never seems to contain the same firepower that their batting lineup seems to contain. Sure, it might be a little unfair to expect bowlers to match up to what the likes of Kohli, Gayle, and de Villiers can do with bat in hand, but RCB’s bowlers over the years HAVE left something to be desired with their performances. So, which batsmen have really taken a shine to the Bangalore bowling attack and made merry most times they’ve played against them? Here’s a look at the top 5 players with most runs against RCB in IPL history.

#5. Gautam Gambhir (647 Runs)

Although he did have a couple of spells with his home side of Delhi, it’s mainly for his exploits with Kolkata Knight Riders that Gautam Gambhir finds himself on this list of the top 5 players with most runs against RCB in IPL matches. Gambhir proved himself to be an extremely reliable opener during the course of his IPL career, scoring a stack of runs against pretty much everyone he ever came up against. However, he seems to have a special fondness for RCB, carting them for 647 runs in 20 innings at an average of 32.35 and a strike rate of 134.51.

Sitting at a very close second behind Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli in the all-time IPL run-scoring charts, you’d expect Suresh Raina to be in the mix whenever you think of players scoring big against a particular team. Rains has played 27 innings against the men from Bangalore, scoring 661 runs at an average of a touch over 30, often seen turning on the style against Kohli’s men no matter which team he was playing for at the time.

David Warner seems to have an undying love affair with Indian grounds, and always seems to do well in Indian conditions, whether it be in the IPL or while touring with the Australian side. Given his love for Indian pitches, it’s no surprise to see Warner take third spot on our list of top 5 players with most runs against RCB in IPL matches. In fact, Warner seems to have a special affinity for the RCB bowlers, scoring 669 runs in just 15 innings at an average of 51.46.

Although MS Dhoni has played many a memorable inning for India as well as for the Chennai Super Kings AND Rising Pune Supergiant, we all consider him to be the man for the big occasion. Dhoni has been at the helm of World Cup wins and IPL wins, and prides himself on leading from the front in each tournament. In the IPL, however, Dhoni seems to save his very best for when his Southern rivals come calling, which is why he’s comfortably at the top of this list of 5 players with most runs against RCB in IPL matches. In 25 innings against RCB, Dhoni has plundered 794 runs (WAY ahead of second place) and he’ll be back this year to make sure that that remains the same!
