In the 12 seasons of the Indian Premier League, The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team has never won the trophy, but will it change this year? Well, the Director of Cricket Operations of RCB, Mike Hesson, is positive about it.

As per Hesson, RCB has extremely experienced international stars including AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn which can still offer a lot to the team given the huge potential.

Hesson declared that the South African stalwarts AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn “still have plenty to offer at this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL)” despite their recent lack of involvement in the top-level cricket.

AB de Villiers, 36, retired from all formats of international cricket back on 23rd Mat 2018 but he still plays in Twenty20 league in South Africa and Australis.

de Villiers was on the winning team in an experimental three-team tournament in July.

Thorugh a virtual media conference which was held in Dubai on Wednesday, Hesson said, “Only a matter of weeks ago he took part in a match in South Africa and once again he was a standout player, having just come out of his living room. So that certainly showed the quality of player he is,”.

The 45 year old former New Zealand Head Coach, Hesson, said Dale Steyn is “developing his game,”.

He said, “We saw some different deliveries that he’s been able to develop over the last six months. So he’s certainly not ready to retire yet, certainly very keen to make a contribution this IPL.”
