Why Bengaluru Can't Win Title Despite Kohli, De Villiers, Gayle

Legends like Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Kevin Pietersen, Brendon McCullum have played for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Virat Kohli has been playing since his inception. There are stars like Glenn Maxwell. The team is currently led by Faf du Plessis, who has previously won four titles in all competitions for Chennai Super Kings. But Bengaluru's longing for a trophy is not over yet.
In the previous 16 editions of the IPL, Bengaluru won the runner-up trophy each time after playing the final three times, and losing once in the final in the defunct Champions League T20. In this year's IPL, Bangalore is in a worse condition. They are at the bottom of the points table with only one win in 6 matches. If you can't write an invincible story of turning around, there is no possibility of getting to the playoffs.
The question is, why did Bengaluru never win a trophy despite having such a large number of players? Michael Vaughan has found an answer. Vaughn, the former captain of England, thinks that if the team culture is not fixed, it is not possible to win the championship by a single star. On 'The Ranveer Show', Indian YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia's YouTube channel, Vaughn said, 'I think Bengaluru's failure is due to the emphasis on the individual over the team. They should understand that cricket is a team game. You can buy big name players for big money in the auction and make the team heavy. But that doesn't mean you will win (the title).'
Another factor Vaughan sees as the reason for Bengaluru's failure season after season, is that 'they have signed some incredible players—AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Faf (du Plessis). But if you can't control the team, make each player understand his role, reorganize the team, play each individual separately and give him complete freedom, then success will not come. I have not seen RCB do anything like that.'
Vaughan also felt that Bengaluru management is making a mistake by sending Kohli to open, 'You will see, when Kohli opens, almost all opponents bowl the first over with a left-arm spinner. If Kohli is batting, he bowls with two fielders on the leg side boundary. Kohli can take two big singles. The bowler also knows that he will give 3 or 4 runs in that over. It is a perfect start for the fielding team. I wonder if the matter of RCB is noticed at all. Had they opened with a left-handed batsman (instead of Kohli), he would have hit two sixes in the first over. RCB would have got 13 to 15 runs in the first over.
