Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the most celebrated teams in franchise cricket. The reason behind this has been the kind of players that have played for the team. It’s fair to say that if this team would’ve been asked to play Test cricket they would’ve excelled. But we took it a step forward and tried to introduce something new as we will be looking at the all-time Royal Challengers Bangalore XI if they play Test cricket. 

KL Rahul, who is India’s most seasoned opener in Tests, will be opening the innings for the all-time Royal Challengers Bangalore XI. It’s fair to say that every team is incomplete without Chris Gayle and therefore he will open the innings alongside Rahul. The West Indies batter set the stage on fire in Tests with his aggressive approach.

Cheteshwar Pujara, who was part of RCB initially, will be an ideal candidate to bat at No.3 as there are hardly any batters in Test cricket who are better than in the longest format of the game. There’s no brainer who will be batting at No.4 as Virat Kohli will be there in the team and also will captain the side. 

Former South African batter AB de Villiers along with Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel will be holding the responsibility to bat at No.5 and 6. While there’s no doubt about the ability of former Proteas skipper, Patel has been among the vital keepers to have played for the team. 

Indian all-rounder Stuart Binny along with Moeen Ali will handle the all-rounder duties. England player will also serve as a spinner bowling. Binny has made quite a few contributions with the bat and his ability to swing the ball sharply gives him the edge in the all-time Royal Challengers Bangalore XI.
