Bengaluru (Bangalore) Royal Challengers

Recommended Posts

Jumbo luvs cricket...whether its test or ODI or now T20. Once he is into wickets, he will definitely make a big big difference in the results. But this time he got the touch a bit late, rather very very late. Above all, he is the one to be watched and learnt from to put regular and sincere efforts irrespective or rewards or punishments. :hatsoff: to him!

Excited about possible Bangalore squad Pietersen/Ryder Uthappa Dravid Ross Taylor Kohli Goswami Akhil/? Praveen Kumar Kumble Steyn Bracken No Kallis, Boucher, Chanderpaul, White, Misbah...looks good. The batting order might not be what I have in mind. But, the squad looks much better than last year's. Pietersen, Ryder, Taylor and Bracken will make a lot of difference if they are all available at least for 7-8 matches.

FAIL
Dravid did his job well last year. I think he should be ok especially if he doesn't open. AK wasn't that good but he is still as good as any Ranji bowler playing in the IPL. BRC swapped ZK with Uthappa so we will have to play Steyn, Bracken, AK, and PK in almost all matches.

B'lore will NEVER do well because the Indian component of the squad is just horrendous. There is NOT one player there, apart from maybe Kohli, whom you can say even comes to selection in the Indian T20 team.

you forgot about uthappa.kohli is not t20 material though but he will do.the indians in the team have to be competent though.

Oh yea, they transferred in Uthappa didnt they? And disagree with you assessment about the home players being just 'competent' enough. They have to provide the MAJOR thrust in the team. You can hire how many every foreign stars as you want, but if you home players dont perform, an IPL team is never going to be good.

No dude' date=' we must look at our U19 and domestic reserves. We dont need to trade for big names.[/quote'] ofcourse that goes without saying but very few u-19 cricketers can make an impact against world class cricketers.they have to be nurtured properly.

so true-maybe uthappa has improved his bowling a lot.:winky:
cbf, we also need someone to come in late in the order and go at two runs per ball, we have lacked that in the past, by now having KP and Robin at the top, i hope we have sorted out our early innings jitters !!! I still remember the game against the Royals at home, where we sucked at the top and conceded defeat in the first six overs itself, i hope we have we have put them all behnd this season !!!

Probable XI: 1 Jesse Ryder, 2 Robin Uthappa, 3 Rahul Dravid, 4 Kevin Pietersen/ Ross Taylor 5 Virat Kohli, 6 B Akhil/ Jacques Kallis, 7 Mark Boucher/ Shreevats Goswami (wk), 8 Praveen Kumar, 9, 10 Nathan Bracken/Vinay Kumar, 11 Dale Steyn. I'd like to have Taylor @ # 3 There's also Cameron White. Kohli had a poor showing in the previous season BRC looking good.
