Dirk Nannes would have made a difference at the Hyderabad pitch

Verdict

Dirk Nannes is a class bowler and could have made a difference on any pitch had he played. We surely missed a trick by not playing him at all but the team had a settled line up and tinkering with that could have been even more dangerous. The RCB bowlers did well enough at Hyderabad but it was the batting that led the side down. Dirk Nannes would be an improvement but not a needed one when strengthening the batting is priority.
44.3 % Defend
55.7 % Attack
“ Dirk needed the perfect time and spot to show his game and I think the Hyderabad pitch would have been the best place. ”
“ The bowlers we played restricted DC to a gettable total. ”
Ushma@rcb: Dirk would have made a huge difference in Hyderabad, since he has been resting and practising since the start of the season.

Playing him would have added a dimension to the pace attack. Moreover resting Murali for a match wouldn't have been a bad move.
Tania Dey: We would have had to replace Tillakaratne Dilshan or Murali to play Nannes, it is never a feasible idea to drop big players in big matches.

Dirk Nannes could perhaps been effective but the line up we played was quite good as well. They kept DC down to 132/7 and the batsmen should have reached that total easily, more batsmen were needed.

Dilshan --- OUT Dirk--------IN This could have made trick! Better buy all-rounders!
27 May 2012
yes
27 May 2012
1000% DIRKY IS A GOOD PLAYER AS COMPAIR 2 dilsan next time take nannes in and though dilsan out its totally a waste of a speedy dirky
25 May 2012
it is googd pitch
24 May 2012
NOthing to say about RCB previous match!!!!
23 May 2012
I'm not really sure about having used him at Hyderabad but he should definitely have been used earlier in the tournament.
23 May 2012
All we needed was change in Batting order, with such a good stroke player mayank being sent to open with Gayle and struggling Dilshan being sent at 4th.
22 May 2012
It was a stupid mistake not to try a bowler like Nannes in this IPL!! We could have tried him against MI in B'lore
22 May 2012
Ys he would have made some difference as he was resting and was fresh..
22 May 2012
ya dirk can take more wicket
22 May 2012
RCB didn't give enough chance to Nannes. I fancy, the results could be different if RCB would have depth in their pace attack with ZAK.
22 May 2012
yeah dirk shld hav played......but my another question is dat agarwal must hav played higher up d order n den followed by ab.....
22 May 2012
yes! i agree Ushma! It would have been better if Dirk could show some pace on field against DC..!
21 May 2012
Yes you're right.RCB made a big mistake to keep him out.
21 May 2012
See i voted FOR as Nannes is a very good bowler.Still feel that the batting let down RCB last night.Gayle taking on Steyn(which wasnt needed),Virat Kohli uncharacteristic shot to get out was for me the turning point of the game.
21 May 2012
he should have been given the change so dat he could show his talent well
21 May 2012
rcb played a great game !!! it dosent matter on the pitch !! GAYLESTORM just missed

lets encourage indian spinners its better to players like d.elgar,rr.hendricks,du duprezz back to our team it makes rcb look strong
27 May 2012
dishan is best than nanes because he does batting
26 May 2012
Dissapointed with rcb's performance. we made improvements but they were not good enough. i seriously feel that we should get dale steyn back. He is a man that can make a difference. I also feel that Eoin Morgan (NO. 3 batsmen in the iic ranking for t20) will be a better bet than Dilli.
25 May 2012
no i think we bowled well...we shd hav replaced dilshaan for mc donald
24 May 2012
@aliya yeah! srsly waste of talk here:/
24 May 2012
All that RCB needs is a potent localite allrounder. just look at d teams qualified for the playoffs.. all have a pinch hitter at no.7. but RCB's batting ends at no.5 or no.6! Hope kumble n venky find somebody. Maybe they can conduct a talent hunt. It'll really help the team as the foreign recruits are probably the best!
24 May 2012
WE DO NOT NEED NANNES!!!! THE GUY WE NEED IS DALE STEYN OR GRAEME SWANN. MALLYS SIR PLEASE BUY DALE STEYN BACK. I F U CAN'T BUY GREAME SWANN. HE IS A WICKET TAKER AND HAS A VERY GOOD ECONOMY. HE WOULD BE A WAYYY BETTER BET THAN MURLI BECAUSE SWANN CAN ALSO BAT WELL!!!!
24 May 2012
Nannes would'nt have made a difference whatsoever.I was happy that ZAK and V Kumar managed to find their form and get into the IPL 2012 leading wicket taker rankings. It is the BATSMEN that worries me. They get cold feet. I feel that RCB is relying TOO heavily on Gayle and that must put him under some pressure and it's true-most of the time when Gayle fails, RCB fail. Tiwary sucks-Im sorry to say it.Next year either sell him or swop him for another local batsmen.RCB NEEDS ALLROUNDERS-GOOD ALLROUNDERS.Back to Tiwary. Sell him or swop him. EXPLORE. You got lots of other local batsmen but you too scared to try them out. I REPEAT ITS NOT THE BOWLERS ITS THE BATSMEN YOU NEED ALLROUNDERS BECAUSE YOUR TAIL IS TOO LONG. Lsstly RCB played better now that Kohli is captain. Keep him as captain.Im just not feelimg Vettori. His a great player yes, but he doesnt do his job as an allrounder.
24 May 2012
our bowling was good but still take dilshan out and put vettori back as vettori and murali can make a great spell as he can bat aswell

BOWLERS PUT TIGHT AGAINST DC,, WE FAILED IN OUR BATTING.. SHOT SELECTION MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THAT MATCH WHICH RESULTS AGAINST RCB
23 May 2012
would have been a tough decision to drop Murali as he had one bad match against the daredevils. Playing a T20 with just 6 batsmen was suicidal!! Gayle managed to negate that fact for a couple of matches but for me that was the bigger blunder than not playing McDonald. IPL 5's over will take a couple of days to come the fact and will look forward to next year!! Sad part is for the first time in CLT20 history RCB has not qualified.
22 May 2012
I f we had to replace dilshanat all then it shoul dhave been with McDonald as his economy while bowling in Bangalore pitch itself was around 7 and he could be used as a good pinch hitter.
22 May 2012
well bowlers did a commendable job and we know who let the match down!!! infact adding a extra batsman might ve made a difference and for GOD SAKE..PLS dont let tiwary near the stadium during the nxt season...
22 May 2012
The bowlers did a great job. Maybe yes, if Dirk were a great batsman.
22 May 2012
because u are not add pic u and u are fake
22 May 2012
ya i feel for Dirk.. Didn't get any opportunity.. But with what we played against DC was a decent team.. May be we lacked all rounders..
22 May 2012
Don't think Dirk would have made much of a difference. He could have and may have but that could be said about every other player sitting on the ###. The chargers just bowled better than us especially Amit Mishra and Dale Steyn.
22 May 2012
I feel batsmen let us down.. esp Tiwary was the loose knot throughout the tournament.. if ws lazy in the fields too.. RCB needs better Indian Players.. a good Indian All-Rounder.
22 May 2012
why do you guys decide who should bat or bowl ?The captain should decide .Chris Gayle himself was a captain or you could have made Dilshan a captain.The captain has to decide who should be inthe playing 11 .Nobody else.Pitch conditions ,and weather conditions..It is unfortunate you guys kept a Vettori out ..He was a better captain..
22 May 2012
Our bowling attack was good enough!!! It wouldn't have made any difference with Dirk Nannes.
21 May 2012
Nannes would not make any difference ! That was the Mistake of Batsmen to not chase 132 ! I don't think that Nannes would make a 50 with the Bat !
21 May 2012
Zak, Vinay, Harshal
21 May 2012
No doubt that Nannes is a Quality player. But we cant introduce him in a cruicual game. He should nhave given the oppurtunity in the earlier games... And AB should have captained as well...
21 May 2012
It's not the fault of bowlers . . It;s all fault by batsman . . . Mainly Tiwary . . Leave him or exchange him with other players for next season . .
21 May 2012
134 was not a big target 2 chase down.so playing Nannes in d team would not have made a huge difference. Batting was a real failure and that everyone have to accept.
21 May 2012
It wouldn't have been a good decision. The main problem with RCB is the team combination is not good. If you need 3 good batsmen , Sacrifice your good bowlers. Thats the main problem with RCB. we can't trust the local players other than Kohli and the new Agarwal for a win. RCB should pick atleast 2 good local or foreign all rounders or atleast 2 good local bowlers so that we can form a good shaped team
21 May 2012
In a crucial must-win game, what RCB needed was another batsman. McDonald or Vettori should have played. Why to risk someone who has'nt played entire season?
21 May 2012
Bundy baby u r also the part of these dumbies hahahah
21 May 2012
dilshan! should have been dropped n vettori should hav played.. anyways y is dis discussion happening now wen all is over... dumb ppl
21 May 2012
Total script rather than kohali
21 May 2012
The bowlers were fine without dirk its just the batters messed up!
21 May 2012
Well we can also say that it wasnt in thr destiny to win otherwise if they can score 215 thn y cant 133.
21 May 2012
Dilshan didnt play well though openers should be good....mayank agarwal is a better opener thn dilshan.
21 May 2012
as if he would have taken 10 wickets=p
21 May 2012
i dont think so the bowling would have made any difference,virat should have stayed and played till the end of the match
21 May 2012
Kohli had to select bat first,no all-rounder and finisher is in the side..
21 May 2012
If kholi had to select bat first,and no all-rounder and finisher in the side ..
21 May 2012
we ran out of batsmen who could get us past deccan's score,So nannes comes no where in the topic. It would have been much better to play mcdonald instead of dilshan as it would give us 1 more seam option and a very good opening partnr for gayle or he could be sent in the middle order and mayank agarwal openin with gayle was best option
