The team has had its ups and downs throughout the IPL seasons and holds the record of both the highest and lowest runs ever made in the IPL history. The team consists of some of the biggest names of the cricket world like Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Anil Kumble and Kevin Peterson and these players have given their best to take the team to new highs. Although the team has not yet claimed the IPL title, it has sure put on some of the most entertaining matches in the IPL history and fans sure love this team due to its popular and heartthrob list of players. The team is currently being led by the Indian skipper and the run machine himself, Virat Kohli who has delivered some his best performances in the T20 format.

Astrological Perception of RCB for IPL 2019
Our prominent Astrologers at Astroyogi have done a thorough research on the astrological aspect of the team’s chances in the upcoming season. The predictions have been made emphasising on the facts and figures. Based on the predictions, here is an overview of what could be expected of the team in the IPL 2019.
Based on the first letter of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the ruling sign of the team is Libra. The 12th season of IPL will begin from 23rd March with Royal Challengers Bangalore being one of the teams participating in the opening match against Chennai Super Kings. The ruling planet of Libra is Venus and at the beginning of IPL the sign and the ascendant are the same. Sun will be in the 6th house while Mars sits in the 6th house which indicates favourable times but the only trouble for RCB is that Rahu is in the 9th house. Moon is also present in the astrological chart of RCB which indicates that the team will need to not turn to overconfidence when performing well.
On the basis of numerology, the letters in the name Royal Challengers Bangalore produce the number 7 to be their ruling number which is assigned to Ketu. Based on the short form RCB the number identified is also 7 which specifies mixed performance for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The team might have trouble making it to the top four but it is not impossible to achieve.
