KL Rahul must open the batting for RCB

Verdict

After Mayank Agarwal's injury, RCB should have played another attacking opener to keep the balance of the side intact. Neither Saurabh Tiwary nor Cheteshwar Pujara showed the adaptability necessary in a T20 opener. With a middle order as solid as RCB's to follow and with Chris Gayle playing himself in, his opening partner must blast off at the other end. Kohli got many such chances to prove himself in 2008 when the IPL began and must extend the opportunity to another youngster to make it big.

“ KL Rahul's explosive starts will help ”
“ Pujara’s solidity required at the top ”
Vineet Varma: KL Rahul looks like a good choice to open the batting given his ability to hit the ball long and hard, which is definitely the need of the hour for RCB. Though Cheteshwar Pujara is technically more adept, Rahul has the ability to bring out the shots early in his innings and he can let Gayle get his eye in the meanwhile. So the ‘Rahul-Gayle’ opening combination looks like a good choice for RCB.
Dhiraj Salian: Cheteshwar Pujara is a solid batsman, he can provide RCB a safe start no matter what the opposition and how the pitch behaves. With a batsman like him, RCB can build strong base and allow the other explosive batsmen in the line up the license to go hammer and tongs at the opposition bowlers. Pujara has also shown he can change gears brilliantly and provide RCB a smooth finish himself.

Admin I think Time to change Debate Topic
28 May 2013
yes
27 May 2013
KL Rahul is great in fielding and he should get chance in middle order or lower down the order
27 May 2013
Clearly, pujara at the top was counter productive. We need someone explosive to open with gayle as gayle starts slowly..
26 May 2013
yes
25 May 2013
We can gamble with our opening batsmen opp gayle which is rahul as we have one of the best batting line up which can tear up any bowling attach in IPL.
23 May 2013
deepa1 yeah i think same but he can be good ODI player
22 May 2013
pujara is more of a test player. . he takes a lot of time to score runs which doesnt suit the t20 formay
22 May 2013
Yes he should be opening for RCB. He should start attacking from 1st ball itself, it would take off pressure from gayle. It would be a great idea if he is sent as an opener.
22 May 2013
Admin, KL Rahul would have done great but 2013 IPL we are out so , I think we should change the debate Topic and continue this for NEXT year ??
21 May 2013
yes
20 May 2013
He is showing a great form hope we do great next year.
20 May 2013
OPENING STATUS SHOULD BE CHRIS GAYLE AMD VIRAT KOHLI AND THEN AB DE ,THEN DILSHAN
20 May 2013
rcb need local talent very much only virat is the best indian batsman need one more indian middle order batsman pujara must not come up the order
20 May 2013
gayle starts slowly so kl rahul needs to open
20 May 2013
yep KL Rahul is good
20 May 2013
superb batsmen to blast in t2o format.. he deserved to strike opening..
19 May 2013
its tough time for the mighty rcb .....but hope for best we will see them in the qualifiers for sure
19 May 2013
He has scored lot of runs in recent concluded T20 tournament needs to be given a chance
19 May 2013
After watching the way he played against Azar Mahammod I got the felling he can be Middle order Batsman.
19 May 2013
yea....We need an explosive start at the Garden city..!!!we must get going from the word go...! We have seen that potential in Rahul.But Pujara on the other hand is a steady batsman who doesnt go for the big shots which is not ideal in bengaluru..!
18 May 2013
I think mayank agrwal and chris gayle is good opeing pair for rcb.pujara never play explosive shot.
18 May 2013
Yes
18 May 2013
it is in my believe the the best opening pare for tomorrow game will be Vinay Kumar he should have a shot at the opening spot he has a strike rate of 159.09 for RCB in this year IPL so if we gonna bat first or chase down the runs we need two that will go at it from ball one
18 May 2013
yes he is an explosive batsman and pujara is an test man player
18 May 2013
It can Help but really no time to watch the experiences.
17 May 2013

why not pujara
30 May 2013
Cheteshwar Pujara is a solid batsman, he can provide RCB a safe start no matter what the opposition and how the pitch behaves. With a batsman like him, RCB can build strong base
28 May 2013
what is the specialty with K L rahul
26 May 2013
whats problem with those who are openings the innings
26 May 2013
regular oppener should not be disturb by new commers
24 May 2013
no need to open the innings by an uncap player
24 May 2013
“ Gayle is solidity required at the top
24 May 2013
we have seen both play but pujara was better
22 May 2013
Best is gayle and kohli
22 May 2013
what do you guys think if rahul opens will the score go up??
22 May 2013
the team is strong now

Superb!!!Leaders at the beginning stage of the tournament and not even qualified to the playoffs.Lot of drop catches,poor bowling and erratic batting has lead to downfall and second year in succession you have been thrown out of tournament.WELL DONE.CONGRATULATIONS.
19 May 2013
virat is in great form and gayle is always in a stormy mood
19 May 2013
Virat and Gayle have done very well in their patnership so they should open the batting for RCB
19 May 2013
no Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli should open the batting
19 May 2013
pujara is expirence and he can play very well
19 May 2013
I think Pujara is better to open with gayle coz they r international players nd have a lot of experience
18 May 2013
yaa exactly we need pujara dis tym to perfrm to his strength....he can manage the team very well.
17 May 2013
Pujara is a better choice to open the innings
17 May 2013
gayle is sufficient to give a explosive start. pujara save the wicket from one end
17 May 2013
He is one of the experience person in the team , so he control the game when needed. he can rotate single and build a strong base for the team .
