Chuck, Marry and Frill | Who RCB should let go and retain ahead of IPL 2021

Royal Challengers Bangalore might have finished fourth, but ask that lion on the top of their logo, it would paint a rather different picture of their season. Yet again for RCB, this time in 2020, it was a party of AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli - only joined by Devdutt Padikkal and Chris Morris.
