The runners-up of the ninth edition (2016), finished last in the league in 2017, but de Villiers believes that the eleventh season of Indian Premier League (IPL) will see a turnaround for the franchise that has never won the coveted professional domestic league title.

For RCB in 2018, the M Chinnaswamy stadium must become so much more than just our home stadium in Bengaluru – it must once again become our fortress. I have grown to love the place… the atmosphere, the history and, more than anything, the supporters who fill the grandstands every time RCB take the field,” de Villiers wrote in TOI.

Our home season starts with the visit of KXIP on Friday. We have done our homework and they are another powerful team; in fact, this already feels like the strongest IPL ever. So we will need to bat well, to bowl in the right places, to field like tigers and to get the crowd excited and energised. Then, for sure, the Chinnaswamy will roar again,” he added.

The South African also presented some statistics from previous seasons to assess how poorly his team has performed last year. He also added that losing six out of seven home games made all the difference.

Looking at RCB’s home games, AB de Villiers hoped the team’s batsmen could fire as one.

I have no idea how the Chinnaswamy pitch will play this year, although the outfield does look amazing, in better condition than ever; it would be great for us, and for the spectators, if the runs started to flow once again, but, whatever we find, whatever the conditions, we must adapt and find a way to win,” he concluded.
