Vijay Zol should open for RCB alongside Chris Gayle in IPL 7

“ Time to test his potential ”
“ Top order needs experience ”
Vidula Menge: Young Vijay Zol has been a sensation in India's U19 circuit. At a tender age, he has already created waves with impressive performances. With the explosive Chris Gayle at the top, RCB needs someone who can quietly collect runs and play a supporting role as well as prosper personally. He has had tremendous success with the bat leading the U19 team in India as well as abroad. Zol did not play a single game in the 2013 season. It is time his ability to rack up huge scores at a fast rate is put to test on the big stage, giving him the much-needed exposure that will further boost his confidence level. The youngster must find a place in RCB's playing XI sooner than later.
Shreya Ganguly: For someone so young and raw as Vijay Zol, opening the innings might not be a good idea. Especially in the T20 format, where there's hardly any time to settle at the crease and every ball counts. There is immense pressure to score right from the start and that requires some amount of experience on the big stage. Someone like Parthiv Patel has been around for years, and scoring quickly comes to him rather easily. He has previously opened for other franchises as well, and that has only added to his experience. Zol's talent cannot be undermined, but putting him at the top right away might add to the pressure. He can blossom in the middle order, where the situation maybe slightly better than while opening.

He might be a good option. Trying him out in early matches is not a bad option.Perhaps, we may get a new player for the INDIAN team, as an opener.
15 Apr 2014
Vijay zol should open as he is a right handed batsman.left and right combination will help RCB.parthiv should bat at 6.
15 Apr 2014
virat and gayle should open for batting
15 Apr 2014
let's test it
15 Apr 2014
As Sanju showed his potential in RR, Vijay Zol must be given chance to show his potential. Because at the end of the day he is going to the future of India Cricket. Hope Zol utilize the chance
15 Apr 2014
Vijay Zol open for RCB
15 Apr 2014
He should open.He has lots of potential.
14 Apr 2014
Both they are stronger and fully tremendous performer.
14 Apr 2014
we need a strong opner other than gayle and vijay zol can be the one
14 Apr 2014
it plays crucial role
13 Apr 2014
yes
13 Apr 2014
i think its better to. open the inning with gayle will provide the left and right hand combination which will help the team to destroy ty the line and length of the oppsoite team bowlers and their bowling plans too
12 Apr 2014
Vijay zol can open but he should be strong and confident in form
12 Apr 2014
i support parthiv
11 Apr 2014
thats enough
09 Apr 2014
yes, vijay zol should open. we can try his way of batting alongside gayle to know his true potential.
09 Apr 2014
Yes
09 Apr 2014
He is talented and he should be exposed to top class bowling in the beginning of the tournament when the pressure is low so he gains confidence
09 Apr 2014
right
09 Apr 2014
ur right
09 Apr 2014
yeah lets give him chance
09 Apr 2014
yes vijy zol should open the innings with gayle
08 Apr 2014
not a bad decision
08 Apr 2014
Vijay has always entertained audience with his smart game. Looking at his past game history he should get a chance to start as an opener, no doubt there are very senior
08 Apr 2014
IT Will be quite difficult for him as a finisher one down virat two down yuvi three down AB so no spot left for him .... there is always pressure situation after these all wickets down n only albie to follow him.... so better he should open For RCB n play an anchor role !!!!
07 Apr 2014
he should take the oppurtinity and show his talent in front of the world..
07 Apr 2014
another kohli
07 Apr 2014
he is the best option
07 Apr 2014
Yes V Zol should play, coz IPL is d platform for youngster's to show their talent!! My vote is for #VZ
07 Apr 2014
However my biggest fear is actually Chris Gayle himself. In the last world cup they actually revielled a problem... If Gayle doesn't learn to rotate the strike and teams find ways to bog him down then all he does is generally cause pressure for players like Kholi... He needs to learn to play more singles or run between the wickets in the early part of his innings or else we are in trouble this season... Gayle needs to grow one more level or else 50% of the time he actually becomes a cause of loss because he can easily absorb 20 balls at less than a run a ball and then get out or even leave RCB Exposed to DL with weather so we really need to be careful with Gayle not his partner.. Gayle really needs a partner that can rotate the strike with ... Please send the Stiff man for yoga or something and just increase his speed between the wickets .. As for Menge i am more than happy for him to open the batting... RCB has the experience of Gayle... Last season we had the experience of Dilshan and it did nothing... We also have Virat as well so what is the fuss
07 Apr 2014
Zol opening with Gayle strengthens the RCB batting lineup.Limitaions of Parthiv are exposed to the world
07 Apr 2014
defend
06 Apr 2014
If Zol opens with Gayle, it provides right balance to the team
06 Apr 2014
True RCBens are rockstars..
06 Apr 2014
He is a good player n can b effective if opens d innings after making a good name in u-19
06 Apr 2014
Accepting the fact that we have to try out new things to form a history....and vijay zol is not at all a wrong option to try n find out some better changes for RCB....and specially when we have such a great batting line up and captain like virat kohli....also the previous records....having strike rate of around 130 in T20.
06 Apr 2014
Ya chance should be given to him, as he is new we can try once or twice and check. If he rocks will continue / if he goes down will change, anyhow we have more matches to play. It will not effect @all..
06 Apr 2014
Ek sath 2-2 virat ka action dekhna hai to.... abki baar vijay ko laao yaar!!
06 Apr 2014
Zol can rotate strike in the opening slot when Gayle plays big shots. He is the best option to open with Gayle instead of pushing him down in the lower order.
06 Apr 2014
Zol is hard hitter comparing parthiv Patel!
06 Apr 2014
Making Vijay Zol open with Gayle would fulfill the soul concept of IPL: nourishing and nurturing young Indian Cricketers.!
06 Apr 2014
All big players had no experience in their first big match. Experience follows after playing matches. Gayle and Zol, the best combination. Zol, the best choice to accompany Gayle. Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Gayle or even Samson for that matter, gained experience only after playing their matches.
06 Apr 2014
Remember Zol's 60 ball century against Bombay last year in Mushtaq Ali Cup. Can not be neglected and kept aside. Neglecting him is neglecting Indian cricket and keeping him aside is keeping talented yougsters aside for no reason.
06 Apr 2014
In my opinion, vijay zol should definitely be given a chanc e this season. He has justified his talent in the ranji trophy too. He is undisputedly the most technically sound player in the u19 cricket players. A chance should definitely be given. He has got the ability and talent for sure.
06 Apr 2014
Ya he should have an opportunity to show his potential A
06 Apr 2014
Vijay is young and dynamic batsman like sachin.
06 Apr 2014
both r hard core hitters
06 Apr 2014
He should be given this opportunity!
06 Apr 2014
Test his potential, and he will leave all of us awed with his performance! Go Mr.Zol
06 Apr 2014
Vijay Zol should get a chance in the team to play. He is like Virat Kholi in 2008. A new comm-er in 008 has become a sensational star today. Like this he could be a sensational in the future. IPL should be a platform for new commers. As many new stars are coming out like Sanju Samson, Rahane etc He should be the one in future.
06 Apr 2014
yes its good n virat should com in 3
06 Apr 2014
Yes.vijay should be given opportunity to open the INNINGS FOR RCB ..partially he has good experiance in international circuit as a captain of India u 19
06 Apr 2014
he should be given a chance...how myank proved himself...we can xpect from vijay too....
06 Apr 2014
Hello
06 Apr 2014
Should give chance for newcomers....
06 Apr 2014
It is d best chance to prove himseld
06 Apr 2014
vijay zol and kohli wrked to gether so kohli knw him vry well and good so kohli shld go wit vijay zol
05 Apr 2014
Guess if DHONI didn't get CHANCE to play in place of Parthiv patel then what disaster it would be for INDIA !!! so this time Vijay ZOL !!!
05 Apr 2014
Rcb rocks

Patel will be the better option than Zol because Patel have lot of experiance so...
16 Apr 2014
lets not experiment in the 1st match itself. Partiv is a proved opener. If partiv fails in 1st 4-5 matches then only we can think of experimenting opening with Vijay Zol
16 Apr 2014
Vijay Zol is a big No for opening slot. Parthiv patel is a nice option if he plays.
16 Apr 2014
no partiv patel seems to be a good opener to chris gayle other then vijay zol
15 Apr 2014
parthiv patel
15 Apr 2014
Shouldnt try initially but may be in the later matches , he deserves to bat opposite gayle. Who knows he might be the next kohli :)
15 Apr 2014
should bat in middle order in debut
15 Apr 2014
even though he has the potential to bat at number one, parthiv patel should open along with gayle gor 2 reason. 1) parthiv has proven unsuccessful in lower order 2) and in IPL you need an aggressive opener who has got at least some experience in the past.
15 Apr 2014
parthiv patel should open the battig along wth gayle
15 Apr 2014
Zol didnt do anything great in the recently concluded under-19 world cup. Parthiv should partner Gayle coz he is experienced also he can pull n play spin very well
15 Apr 2014
PARTHIV PATEL SHOULD OPEN WITH GAYLE.
14 Apr 2014
I LIKE PARHIV PATEL AND GAYLE TO OPEN BATTING FOR RCB.
14 Apr 2014
it must b parthiv patel
14 Apr 2014
Open with Parthiv..He has been doing the job for his previous franchises..!!With the batting fire power we have 6 batsmen are more than enough..The line up can be Gayle, Parthiv, Virat, AB De, Yuvraj, Albie, Dinda, Aaron, Murali/Starc, Jakati, Harshal Patel
14 Apr 2014
Parthiv patel will be better opener than Vijay Zol...........
14 Apr 2014
as this is t20 there is no need
13 Apr 2014
bcoz v had an xperienced opener in the form of wk
13 Apr 2014
parthiv patel is more experience than vijay.....parthiv is more appropriate with gayle
13 Apr 2014
nic maddinson is far more better
13 Apr 2014
I think Nic Maddinson should open the innings with Gayle as we know gayle will take some time to settle while other will get fast start from Nic hes is good hitter of ball.Mr Dependent(Virat Kohli) please take in our team.
13 Apr 2014
no,i think that parthiv patel should open with chris gayle in ipl 7 vijay zol is little bit inexperience and ipl is a big stage so i think vijay zol should bat in middle order
12 Apr 2014
someone like parthiv patel should go up first with gayle as he has experience we cant let him out too early while we have seen parthiv patels opening skills and the way he fires the shots
12 Apr 2014
parthiv is good for opening slot
09 Apr 2014
Thats Good
09 Apr 2014
RCB don't have much Inidian Batsman. So whatever is available from that list, parthiv is going to play most of the matches and we all know, he is not big hitter. So with this, its better to open with Parthiv and make Zol to play at 6 with full freedom to express him slef.
09 Apr 2014
no parthiv patel should open
08 Apr 2014
no testing only experience
08 Apr 2014
I think yuvraj or parthiv should open with gayle!!
08 Apr 2014
I feel Yuvraj must start with him... may be that'll be career changing thing.
08 Apr 2014
no parthiv is the best opener
07 Apr 2014
no parthiv is the best opener

07 Apr 2014

07 Apr 2014
Zol must ply in middle order
07 Apr 2014
P.Patel should be right choice . Because he can Play some shorts in Power Play overs
05 Apr 2014
Parthiv is better..Zol should play in middle order
05 Apr 2014
Parthiv patel would be a better choice. Vijay zol playing in the middle order would be a better choice.
05 Apr 2014
Someone with experience will work
05 Apr 2014
Prativ fits as a opener there is no other slot let for him
05 Apr 2014
Parthiv Patel is better option
