About Me

Am a die hard cricket fan and i follow even the county matches and other corporate natches. I always dream making it big on the cricket field and i think this gives me an ideal oppurtuntiy for me.

I am the most fanatic RCB fan because...

Am from Bangalore and most of the world's most consistent cricket players like Rahul,Anil,Shiv and Jacques are here. Moreover my favourite players Rahul and Anil are both a part of this team. I stood behind this team even after the IPL 1 though my friends made fun of me and this team.

Strategy Map for RCB - Airtel Champions League

My preferred line up :

Jesse Ryder,Manish Pandey,Rahul Dravid,Virat Kohli,Ross Taylor,Rajesh Bishnoi,Mark Boucher, Praveen Kumar,Vinay Kumar,Dale Steyn,Anil Kumble,Jacques Kallis

why do I prefer this line up :

This has the right balance of youth and experience, it has good all rounders which is the key in the shortest format . It has some hard hitters of cricket ball such as Taylor,Rajesh and Mark who can come at the death and score some important runs . The new ball can be shared by the tearaway fast bowler Steyn and Prveen who has the ability to swing the ball both ways . The middle overs can be contolled by always accurate Jumbo,Vinay and Ryder and if necesary Virat can turn his arm over and his action is quite deceptive . All in all it has all the mix to win any matches.

My opening match strategy:

Open with Ryder and Manish with Ryder going for big hits . Then Rahul can handle middle overs ticking the scorecard and Ross can up the tempo even during middle overs. Then we can have a big slog from 12 over with Robin and Mark to follow along wit Praveen and Vinay who can clear the fence with their power hiiting . Then during bowling with Steyn and Praveen where Steyn can attack with his extra pace and trouble the batsmen while Praveen can keep it simple bowling wicket to wicket, After 6 overs Vinay can bowl some tidy overs with Anil bowling 2 off his overs with him n 2 at the death . Ryder can easily be our 5 bowler.

My best T20 match:

Venue: Newlands,Capetown Date: 18 april 2009

This was the bowler dominated match which is a rare thing in cricket now a days . This also showed that a technically perfect batsman can also play and win T20 matches for you.
