I am the most fanatic RCB fan because...
I am most fanatic fan of RCB because for me RCB is Bangalore! RCB is Mallya!!! and when Bangalore loses am hurt. I dont know how to explain this whole phenomenon! its weird!!! I feel bad when the Indian Team loses!!! but i feel really bad when RCB loses!!!! Now i found this out myself... Thats when i realized what RCB means to me!!! I support them irrespective of their wins . The simple fact that might help you decide that am among one of RCB's fanatic fans is... I bought a RCB fan jersey when the team dint really do well, they were losing back to back matches after their first win against Rajasthan. So being from Bangalore i was furious over the fact that just because Bangalore dint do well last season and during the initial losing streak of 2009 season people from our very own town stopped supporting us. And from then on, i wore the RCB jersey to office, everytime they played. My colleagues mocked me, for wearing a "Loser Team Jersey". But i kept wearing it irrespective of what people around me said.. and it dint take much time before we were on the winning side of the things. RCB is life, RCB is Bangalore, RCB is Mallya, RCB is Red! and Reds rule.
Strategy Map for RCB - Airtel Champions League
My preferred line up :
Robin Uthappa Manish Pandey Jacque Kallis Ross Taylor Rahul Dravid Virat Kohli Roelef Van der Merwe Mark Boucher Praveen Kumar Vinay Kumar Anil Kumble Dale Steyn
why do I prefer this line up :
This is my recommended line up because, Most of our wins in the 2009 season had a mixture of these 12 people who performed well at different positions on different occasions during tense pressure situations. And this is the team that has every blend in it to win the Champions League, having missed the IPL 09' finals by a whisker.
My opening match strategy:
My stratergy would be to just go out and play the game as any other IPL match and don't really stress youself as this would be Champions League game. Let every player be let free to think and play himself rather than pressurizing them with responsibilities. Having proven the ability to get the best out of the boys, Jumbo should have a word with Robin and other guys like Akhil and Vinay Kumar and give them all the confidence required for this competition. The bowlers should be mixed well and there should be surprises like, Kumble opening the bowling depending on the pitch and toss. As RCB has shown skills of chasing well, they should more or less stick with the same strategy depending on the team composition and situation. Ross Taylor and Rahul Dravid are going to be the key in the middle order bringing the right kind of attack.
My best T20 match:
Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings RCB won by 6 wickets (with 7 ##### remaining). This has to be the match of the tournament. We defeated the team that was the most bid team to win the IPL 09. The experience of Rahul coming in to win us this important match, when they had the likes of Murli, Oram and Morkel. We proved that we are no losers and we are here to win it. The expression on Mallya's face that day said it all.
