You are short selling the utility of likes of Tewatia. It's a very dangerous team now and hopefully captaincy brings out something better from Samson. 

Not sure about Tewatia as teams have figutred him Out. No balls in his arc. But Samson yes. By being a captain if he just can tame His excitement he can be dangerous for not only RR but for india. He has all the shots in the book , has the power. Just needs temperment. He forgets that if you are an opening batsman you still have lots of time.. easy eg is the matches against aus. He was playing well but unnecessarily made unforced errors when trying to hit out when RR was in control.. need patience and this responsibility as captain can make him an Indian jos buttler..

No i said they ll miss test series this time not IPL



Except for Stokes, Archer, Buttler, Bairstow nobody walks in this England test team. And for all you have replacements in Woakes, Wood,Stone, Foakes, Crawley etc. 

As per news only the teams which goes to qualifiers will miss the test. In terms Of probability and missing out RR with Archer Stokes and Buttler has the highest no of English players ( actually RR has tied up with county cricket teams to give exposure to young English Cricketers as their head of operations is a brit guy McCrum).. so if RR doesnt qualify there wont be any issue. And Moeen not sure will play tests any more.

Man you are really something. How many trophies did RCB win before Kohli became captain.

So that time of the week again when you need your schooling on cricket stats. Here we go

This is RCB's IPL record

Runner's Up: 2009 and 2011

Play offs: 2010

Bottom 2: 2008 and 2012


Add that they were semifinalists of CLT20 in 2010 and runners up in 2011. 


Since 2013

Runner's Up: 2016

Play offs: 2015, 2020

Bottom 2: 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019

Others: 2013 (5th)


So in the first 4 years of its history, RCB had 3 podium finishes in IPL and 2 in CLT20.


Since 2013 when a certain someone took over as captain, they have had 3 podium finishes in 8 years but more importantly 4 bottom 2 finishes including multiple wooden spoons. Captain Genius (or Lol as you'll like) for a reason :hatsoff:
