RCB Playing 11

Recommended Posts

BATSMEN:

VIRAT ,ABD ,SARFRAZ , MCCULLUM, MANDEEP SINGH, MANAN VOHRA, ANIRUDHA JOSHI, PAVAN DESHPANDE

 

WICKET KEEPERS:

QUINTON, PARTHIV PATEL

 

ALL ROUNDERS:

WOAKES ,WASHINGTON SUNDAR ,CDG ,MOEEN, YUZVENDRA CHAHAL, PAWAN NEGI

 

BOWLERS:

UMESH YADAV, NAVDEEP SAINI , SIRAJ ,MURUGAN ASHWIN ,NCN ,TIM SOUTHEE ,KULWANT KHEJROLIYA, ANIKET CHOUDHARY

 

I think the playing 11 would be as follows:

MANDEEP SINGH
QUINTON
VIRAT
ABD
SARFRAZ
WOAKES (Woakes as first choice.  CDG / MOEEN as backup options)
PAVAN NEGI
SOUTHEE (NCN is injured)
WASHINGTON SUNDAR
YUZVENDRA CHAHAL
UMESH YADAV / NAVDEEP SAINI / SIRAJ

 

What the team gets:

(1) Attacking openers. (Virat gets some cover from new ball. Mandeep can be given role of quick scorer)

(2) Strong middle order as well as depth in batting upto No. 9. NCN can play cameos, Sundar can bat a bit)

(3) Pace attack of 3 bowlers (NCN, Yadav & Woakes. NCN is a strike bowlers as opener and bowls at good pace in 140's. Umesh Yadav is weak link. Woakes will give 4 overs most of the times. Reliable spin combination)

 

What do you think the playing 11 would be ?

My XI

 

Kock

Kohli 

Abdv

Colin de Grandhomme

sarfraz

mandeep 

coulter nile

Sundar 

Chahal 

Kulwant 

siraj/umesh/ negi 

 

Kohli n ABDV shud bat where they have been no point guarding them in a 20 over game 

Woakes or CDG is a puzzle. We will come to know only in 1st match. Both have similar roles. Both are in form recently.

NCN has been injured for a while and may not play. He missed out on the BBL as well.

Not sure then why they picked him. He is often injury prone and has backs tress fractures iirc. Will miss this IPL.

Moeen Ali (AR )

PP ( WK-Bat ) 

Virat ( Bat )

AB ( Bat )

Anirudha Joshi/ Pavan ( Bat )

Sarfaraz  ( Bat ) 

Sundar (AR )

Woakes  ( AR )

NCN ( Pace ) 

Chahal ( Spin )

Kulwant/Saini (Pace )

 

 

Batting till no 8 .

Spin options - Chahal , Moeen , Sundar .

Pace - NCN , Kulwant , Woakes 

 

I will play this combination for first 4-5 matches , Joshi/Pavan are bit off unknown but are big hitters at domestic level and being home ground for both ..if they do well , will add to balance of side . I like Moen at the top of order over QDK . PP another experiment for few matches .

Reading above posts, NCN is injured and will miss IPL it seems.

I feel they will need one international pace bowler. Southee opens the bowling and bowls in last overs for NZ in T20. So they have a perfect fit to one of their issues since Starc left . Southee has been very successful recently in last few months. Bowling on Indian wickets though is different ball game, but RCB wicket was very good one for bowlers last year.

What I will choose:

 

Quinton De Kock / Parthiv Patel (wk) (depends on QDK's form at the time)

Manan Vohra / Brendon McCullum (if QDK is not playing, McCullum plays & also becomes the captain)

Virat Kohli (c)

AB De Villiers

Colin De Grandhomme

Sarfaraz Khan
Nathan Coulter-Nile / Chris Woakes

Washington Sundar

Yuvzendra  Chahal

Navdeep Saini

Mohammed Siraj / Kulwant Khejroliya

I know Southee does bowl in the end overs, but I don't think he is a very adept T20 bowler, especially on Indian pitches. Southee is a swing bowler, who has usually done well at home compared to abroad. But, I agree that perhaps one int'l pacer would be necessary since the 3 I mentioned are all mostly untried at highest level.

Southee has a good bouncer. Nowadays he is picking a good number of wickets on short pitched stuff, wherein West Indian and Pakistani batters failed to keep the hook and pull down. He got good bounce. He may flop in IPL as wickets are different, but still they will have to pick some international bowler for the sake of boosting their fragile pace attack since Starc bid goodbye. And RCB has to fill the void left by Starc two years back. Tymal Mills R&D boomeranged. Think Southee is sure shot considering what they will look to fill their short comings in pace department.

yes, that's true. in the team I listed, probably swapping mcC with Southee and selecting an Indian batter will be the way to go.

Negi - Not good enough

Siraj - Smacked

Umesh - min 9 RPO

With NcN out, I think RCB should have gone for a fast pacer instead of half and half player like Cory. RCBalready had CdG,Woakes and Moneen Ali..they didn't really need another overseas allrounder.

 

 

First match Playing 11 might be

 

B.Mac

Parthiv

VK

AB

Sarfaraz

CdG

Sundar

Woakes

Umesh

Chahal

Siraj

QDK ne Chinnaswamy per century banayi thi wo bhool gaye kya?

 

plus Negi RCB ka highest wicket taker tha aur hitting bhi acchi karta hai.

Absence of a lead pace bowler (Bhuvi, Bumrah, Starc etc.) seems like the obvious weakness in this RCB team. They should have at least picked someone like Tom Curran who has some fire in his belly, in place of the injured NCN. Corey Anderson seems like an useless pick considering there's DeGrandhomme who is very similar.

 

Hopefully Woakes and Southee take the responsibility of the pace bowling and do well consistently.
