There is no doubt that the Indian Premier League(IPL) is one of the most popular franchise League tournaments right now. We all know that the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings are the most iconic teams that have won the title most of the time. However, there is one team that has still not got their hands on the prize but remains iconic to this day. It is The Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) who have had one of the strongest players in the squad but have still not got the big prize. The men in red have made it to 3 IPL finals and have only faced heartbreak in all of them.

Pakistan Super League(PSL)  has also had a big success for the neighbouring nation. There have been some iconic players who played in this league as well. Players like Rashid Khan and Kieron Pollard, also one of the iconic players in the IPL have featured in this league. There have also been some players from the RCB team, who have played in the PSL as well.

Here are the 5 RCB players who have featured in the PSL:

5. Reece Topley


Reece Topley has been a great find for England in white-ball cricket right now. His ability to bowl with the new ball is something that has become a great asset for any team. Reece Topley played one game for the Bangalore franchise and has been retained for the upcoming season. The English pacer is also a part of the Multan Sultans in the PSL as well. He is completely fit right now and RCB will be hoping that he will solve their fast-bowling issue which they had last season.

4. Tom Curran



Tom Curran is right now one of the most expensive buys for RCB this season. The all-rounder has had a decent season with the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash as well. He also featured in PSL for Islamabad United last season for whom he played 5 matches. Tom Curran can take wickets with the ball and his explosive batting down the order. The RCB team have shown a lot of trust in him buying him for 1.5 cr for the upcoming season.

3. Faf Du Plessis

Another player who makes this iconic list is RCB’s current skipper Faf Du Plessis. Du Plessis has been playing a lot of franchise cricket recently and has also played in the PSL in 2020 and 2021 for Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators. The 39-year-old former skipper has been one of the popular players in the RCB squad and he will be looking to turn the fortunes of the team around in the upcoming season as well.

2. AB De Villiers


AB De Villiers is perhaps one of the longest-serving players for RCB in the IPL and has given great performances for the franchise. De Villiers is known to be one of the most dangerous players in the T20 format with his incredible range of shots he possesses. De Villiers also played for the Lahore Qalandars in the 2019 season of the PSL. He also had a decent season in that tournament where he scored 218 runs in his 7 matches.

1. Chris Gayle


RCB might be unfortunate not to win an IPL title, but they were lucky to have Universe boss Chris Gayle in their team. Gayle has played some of his best innings in the red jersey from 2011 to 2017. Chris Gayle has also played for three teams in the PSL and has scored 370 runs in his 16 matches where he featured in the Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators. Gayle might not have as much success in this league, but he will still be remembered as the greatest T20 player of all time.
