Throughout their history in the IPL, RCB have had some outstanding performances from their star players, particularly Virat Kohli. He is the leading run scorer in IPL history and the only batter to surpass the 7000-run mark.
Nevertheless, RCB is the only team that has played all seasons with just one Indian player who scored over 1000 runs for the franchise. In contrast, legendary overseas players like AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle were prolific run-scorers for RCB.
However, despite Kohli’s incredible performances, no other Indian batter has been able to cross the 1000-run mark for the franchise. Rahul Dravid, former Indian skipper and batting icon, is RCB’s second leading Indian run-scorer, but with only 898 IPL runs.
