IPL 2018 | Match 11 | RCB Vs RR | Bangalore | 4 PM IST | 15 April 2018

Recommended Posts

Important match for both teams. Neither a favourite to reach the playoffs. Both teams would struggle later if they fall behind badly in the first half of the tournament.

 

For RR, Archer is probably going to replace Laughlin. Looks a better team with that change.

 

For RCB, it looks like BMac is going to retain his place. Bad selection IMO. Difficult to imagine BMac playing match winning innings anymore. Need to strengthen the poor middle order. Vohra can open.

Vettori has screwed RCB a little both in the auction and in team selection.

 

NZ bias shows. BMac, Southee, Grandhomme, Corey Anderson. Grandhomme is a deserved pick, other 3 are questionable.

 

Even when NCN got injured, instead of going for a frontline seamer like Tom Curran or David Willey who have the potential to make things happen, Vettori went for Corey Anderson which is a waste considering there's already Grandhomme who is exactly similar kind of player, but better and played international cricket currently. Can't remember when Anderson played for NZ last.

Negi picked in place of batsman.

 

Yet to be given a bowl.

 

They've picked a XI which is neither strong in batting nor bowling.

 

bits and pieces stuff
