Royal Challengers Bangalore missed out on a chance of winning the Indian Premier League twice. The Vijay Mallya owned team hasn't been able to clinch any major titles and will be hoping to change that by winning the Champions League Twenty20 this season.

RCB start their Champions League campaign against South African outfit Warriors at the M Chinnaswamy stadium today. "We don't have a trophy yet. But we have the guys in form and I hope we can go all the way this time," said wicketkeeper AB de Villiers.
The pressure will surely be on skipper Daniel Vettori and his team who are without Indian pacer Zaheer Khan. Zaheer is out with an hamstring injury. But nevertheless RCB have a match-winner like West Indian Chris Gayle in their ranks and they will depend on the explosive batsman to guide them to glory against Johan Botha-led Warriors.
