#5 Rahul Dravid
Before Virat Kohli, it was Rahul Dravid who was captain of RCB in earlier seasons of the IPL. Dravid was a famous player at that time and he has played very less matches for RCB compared to the other players on this list but still managed to score 1132 runs for RCB.

Jacques Kallis’s most successful run in IPL was with Kolkata Knight Riders but his time with the RCB team is underrated. Kallis was a major part of RCB’s team and he has also played very less matches in comparison to the other players on this list but scored 1271 runs for RCB which is the fourth highest.
#3 Chris Gayle
Chris Gayle’s most successful years in IPL were with the RCB team. Gayle was RCB’s star, his power-hitting and aggressive style of playing made him a fan favourite.

#2 AB De Villiers
AB de Villiers is among the most loved overseas players in IPL. He is an IPL legend and RCB has also included him and Gayle in their hall of fame segment. AB de Villiers gave many unforgettable moments in IPL with his bat. He is the second-highest run-scorer for RCB. AB De Villiers has scored 4522 runs for the RCB franchise. He was like a family to RCB members, especially to Virat Kohli and no one can match his legacy in IPL and his golden days for RCB.
#1 Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli is not only the highest run-scorer of RCB but he is also the highest run-scorer for one single franchise in the world. Virat has said many times that RCB is very close to his heart and we all cannot forget his prime in 2016 when he broke every single batting record of IPL. Virat came as a teenager on the RCB team but he will surely leave as one of the best players in cricket. Kohli is the only player who has scored more than 7000 runs for a single franchise and who knows if he will reach the mark of 10000 as there is still cricket left in him. Kohli has made 7016 runs for RCB so far.
