Rajasthan Royals and Kings 11 punjab team owners have dissolved their teams if i am not wrong, we need a dashing batsmen like Yuvraj, shaun marsh, and strike bowlers like Sreeshanth, brett lee, Peter Siddle and few good spinners who can fill the shows of Kumble...!! i would be happy if the management choses the best players in the lot and make RCB the best team in the league..!! please dont retain players like kallis whi can score 60 runs in 60 balls..! we need better allrounders, probably players like Albie Morkel, Angelo Mathews have to be a part if RCB!!

Consistency is one word that is well known for the Chennai Super Kings.And to be honest,RCB is very inconsistent.They win few,loose many and again win and somehow land up in top4.So RCB has to take a leaf out of CSK and try to be very consistent.

Very interesting to see the way finalists are decided in upcoming IPL. Top 2 teams has two chances to try and make it to finals.

Just shows the importance of being consistent right throughout the IPL
