After a mediocre Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, Royal Challengers Bangalore have made few changes to their management group.

As per a report in Bangalore Mirror, head coach Daniel Vettori, batting and fielding coach Trent Woodhill (Australia) and bowling coach Andrew McDonald (Australia) have been asked to leave.

However Ashish Nehra - who joined the team last season - will continue as bowling mentor. The new management will be announced next week, but captain Virat Kohli’s suggestions will hold an importance.

As of now, Gary Kristen, the former India national cricket team coach who is associated with RCB as batting mentor, is favourite to don the coaching hat.

 
 
 

Speculations are also rife that Sanjay Bangar, who is currently the Indian cricket team’s batting coach, is a strong candidate to assume charge as the head coach.

However, if he gets the job, there will be a conflict of interest and this could well invoke another controversy.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have always flattered to deceive in the IPL and despite having AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli in their side, they could only win six out of the 14 games.

The situation was even bleak in 2017 when they were banished to the bottom of the table.

After their underwhelming performance this year, a lot of criticism was directed towards the management for not being astute in the auctions and for adopting a confused approach during matches and this could be one of the reasons why heads are rolling in the franchise.

Surely, it's about time to let go of Kohli as well. He's become an Elephant in the room and if he have his way, we would be seeing the likes of Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun, Sanjay Bangar in RCB's team management. That's a double shock for B'lore fans having to see them in Indian set up as well.

Finally !!

 

Vettori has been terrible for RCB. Auction, squad, playing XI, strategies, batting order .. he's got nothing right.

 

Not just RCB, he's been mediocre with all other T20 teams he's coached across the world.

If Kirsten replaces him he’s another mediocre t20 coach his record with India/DD was horrible.

RCB should pick good bowlers and ensure that they are fit for whole season. Pick two decent indian batsmen apart from Kohli. And make sure their home pitch is suitable to their needs.

Ipl to be honest is more about brand value and less about Cricket.

Yes, but only to an extent. Losing repeatedly and ending up at or near the bottom of the table will do considerable damage to brand value.

Delhi owners don’t care despite their team being wooden spooners.

He has been coach since 2012 I believe and they have been mediocre wish some one fires DD owners as well no idea how JSW are as they own 50% shares now.

JSW has managed  Bengaluru FC (football team) brilliantly 

However , hemant dua is in charge of ground team management and it is agreed that JSW will not have a share in micromanaging DD on a daily basis.
