RCB were placed third in the points table, only behind table-toppers Delhi Capitals (DC) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) when the tournament was postponed.
They won five of the seven matches played under the leadership of Virat Kohli, with 10 points in their kitty.
The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) and the IPL Governing Council indefinitely postponed IPL 2021 on May 4 as several players tested positive for COVID-19 within the bio-bubble.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) players Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy, DC’s Amit Mishra and SunRisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) Wriddhiman Saha tested Covid positive.
Several ground staff members and team staff members including CSK’s bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji and Mike Hussey also tested positive for the virus.
Only 29 of the 60 IPL matches could be played this season, with Punjab Kings (PBKS) vs DC being the last fixture that was played.
