Muralitharan should be played more often.

Verdict

Muralitharan did a splendid job as a strike bowler for RCB. His pedigree is unquestionable and his results are there to see. The team felt the absence of Daniel Vettori only against DC but it was more of a batting failure. Batsmen and bowlers have to take the responsibility for their roles and Muralitharan easily earned his place as a bowler.
93.66 % Defend
6.34 % Attack
“ The bowling needs inspiration! ”
“ The team that bats deeper holds a bigger advantage in T20s. ”
Shruti@rcb: The bowlers have been good at pulling things back in most games but really need to work on getting early wickets. Muralitharan can provide that extra dimension to the attack as he's proven in his few games.

When a bowler is doing his job well, the team grows less dependent on an extra batsman.
Tania Dey: T20 is a batsman's game. Dilshan, McDonald and even Vettori provide the team that extra option. Dilshan primarily as a batsman and the other two as bowlers. Muralitharan is a great bowler but on a day when he doesn't click on a pitch or against a player, his 4 overs turn into a great liability.

An over of bad bowling can throw away the game, where as if 6 batsmen can't do the job, the 7th cannot win you the game!! So always make sure you have 5 splecialist bowlers.
21 May 2012
Murli should be an automatic choice over Vettori.
16 May 2012
the bowiling has its own way of setting in
16 May 2012
yes... murali should play all d matchs coz he d legend of spin bowling.. a legend can do much better den anyone else..
16 May 2012
Ya it's true that RCB have a lack of very fine bowling capability as it has given the most runs in this year's IPL. As far as RCB is concerned they will have to win the next 2 matches to enter the playoffs. There is a lot to do with the bowling attack of RCB. Murli, no doubt is one of the best bowler. So, put your hand up and say RCB RCB RCB
16 May 2012
murlitharan is a worl class bolewer he always go to wickets. he did not go to save runs
16 May 2012
lost two matches csk after score of 205 and MI looking at the bowling fif of appanna,i can challenge even a galli cricketer can bowler better then him and u guys are supporting him asking to give more chances to loose the matches
16 May 2012
we lost the match in 3 overs,vkumar,zkhan and apanna 3 overs 60 runs,these are jokers in the team
16 May 2012
i do not understand how Zkhan bowled his over,what a sham,
16 May 2012
BEST BOWLER WHO CAN CHANGE THE GAME
16 May 2012
well yeah murli should... imean he is one of the great players in rcb he can make us win in matches if we let him in more often
16 May 2012
Shruti@rcb
16 May 2012
Murali Is the only guy whu can turn the Match for RCB...!!!!!!!!!
16 May 2012
nannes shld replace dilshan and tiwari shld be dropped...!!!
16 May 2012
Sorry to say this friend, if seriously you got any news that Mithun or arvind is playing please tell... I shall not buy the tickets and waste money... Oh god I just cant come out the blood bath these 2 guys have given us...uff
16 May 2012
I feel this team can do wonders, your say guys? Mayank Agarwal (Should open, and go all out) Chris Gayle (No comments, all is well here, just stay till 15th as The Boss said) Virat Kohli (Get serious, runs will come, just stay!) Saurabh Tiwary (Remember old days, you have it, get responsible urself, rather listening to others) Ab De Villiers (No Comments, all is well here) Mohammad Kaif (Can bat, but will never make you say Oh no! near the boundary marks) Daniel Vettori (Go slow, every ball you bowl should be unique) Vinay Kumar (Dude, same to you, get serious, yes you play India, but you got job to do here for the BOSS too) Muttiah Muralitharan (Bowling okay, I want you to hit few sixes at ### end if so needed, lol) Zaheer Khan (Actually, no comments, but remember the fielding of WCup) Jamaluddin Syed Mohammad (Wanna make big in the industry? talk to murli and try to imitate) Just my view, no offence guys!
16 May 2012
murali has the experience, wickets and a reasonable economy.. he was one of the main reasons for chennai's succes now being in RCB, shud b used consistently
16 May 2012
Time for Nannes to be played in eleven,If RCB really wants to play for Play offs.
15 May 2012
murali is a very good bowler as v knoe but oly murali cannot win mathes for us even d local boys have to chip in properly...and Ronit More is also a very gud bowler wch v cone to knoe from his ranji performance and he should b given a chance instead of Harshal patel as v have oly 2 important matches left v should brng in this bowler...:-):-)
15 May 2012
He should bowl.
15 May 2012
Yes considering Murali's bowling average and wicket taking he should be well in the team no doubts !!!
15 May 2012
RCB's Probables RCB have only 2 matches left.. and their NRR is very low compared to the top 4 in the table… the max points RCB can make if they win their 2 matches is 19. Which they have to to stay in the league. Delhi has 3 matches so the top spot is reserved for them. They still can get an upset if they loose all three of their remaining matches well tats not a fair chance so they r kinda thru !!! They just need one win and they will be at 20 safe points !!! RCB can only look to come 3rd or 4th or it will be a tie with other teams depending on their wins
15 May 2012
Murli can win remaining two games for RCB
15 May 2012
to win upcoming two matches aganist dd and dc they should bring back poojara their should be only 5 bowlers and 6 batsmen
14 May 2012
Muralitharan is a good bowler .
14 May 2012
he is wonderful bowler, he need to play more often
14 May 2012
he is wonderful bowler, he need to play more often
14 May 2012
Is there any news on teams guys? of both Rcb and the visitors??? Fingers crossed, mithun and arvind are not playing please..
14 May 2012
Every game murli needs to play without fail from now on atleast, if the same was followed, we wouldnt be in 5th, rather would have been at the top laughing...
14 May 2012
RCB should remove Saurab tiwary to win the match ..... just a waste this guy [mr:saurabh dekh aur kuch seekh gayle se :)]
14 May 2012
Muttaiha has a great spinning capacity which the team should utilize!!!!
14 May 2012
He can do that
14 May 2012
MUTTIAH
14 May 2012
Yes obviously, though the team has great attackers the opposite team will also come prepared with their best batting line up. so to control the score the most excellent available murali spin is needed.
14 May 2012
murali should be included in all the remaing matches.... and AB De villiers should bat ahead of Tiwary......
14 May 2012
yes
14 May 2012
The only consistent wicket taking bowler for rcb
14 May 2012
Definitely
14 May 2012
murali needs to play all game because he is legend of spin 800 wickets he took and he will break partnership some batsman are strugling to play him its graet advantage to rcb
14 May 2012
i like bowling of murli and zaheer
14 May 2012
There are only 2 legends in bowling one is retired and the other is kept out
14 May 2012
Definitely, Murlitharan should be played more often. Also, to make our bowling attack even more stronger, Parmeshwaran should come in place of H.Patel. No doubt H.Patel is also a good bowler, but Parmeshwaran would make our bowling attack even more stronger
14 May 2012
Our bowling has been week form the start and we need to play at least 5 bowlers. We lost to chennai because of lack of bowlers.
13 May 2012
If you don't have reason to play Murali then ask Dhoni, he will give you all the reasons... :)
13 May 2012
When Murali Plays there is energy which moves around when we are fielding.. when Gayle is there batting Murali should be bowling.. its more balanced this way... Good move Vettori by sitting aside..
13 May 2012
after muruli started playing , he atleast made RCB look like a avg bowling unit otherwise where would u get wickets?
13 May 2012
I think the team has done well in the last three matches by winning and the bowling is showing some improvement and has to be consistent since RCB has the best batting of all the teams in IPL.So,only the bowling has to have some fine tuning to challenge any team any day.If the bowling can support the batting,then I think RCB can make it to the last four easily.
13 May 2012
Undoubtedly Danny is an awesum spinner and he controls the runs bt still Murali is a game changer which matters a lot in the T20 format.
13 May 2012
Murli Is the best !! He always help RCB by taking wickets in every match !!!!!
13 May 2012
For everybody who says Murali shouldn't be played, Gimme a best option for a good spinner and an exceptional fielder in place of him?
13 May 2012
"when he doesn't click on a pitch or against a player, his 4 overs turn into a great liability." @Tania Dey, RCB bowlers have been crying out there in the field. And Murali is the only one who gave solidarity. Every great player goes through bad day! McDonald and extra options like Dilshan, Virat, Gayle have been a boon for opponents!! Murali is mandatory!!
13 May 2012
Wel, T20 is a batsman's game which needs to be won by bowlers, so it's always good to have a world class spinner on our side !
13 May 2012
Wel, Murali is world class and the impact that he is having on the team is there for everyone to see.All of sudden, everything seems to fall in place.
13 May 2012
ya he s a key bowler,,who can take wickets at crucial stages,,
12 May 2012
ther shold be atleas one overses bowlr in the bastsmen always not win the game
12 May 2012
hoges wickt takr for rcb n a 40 yerar old youngster bin the field

Need a strike bowler like him to play often
12 May 2012
Bowlers have to do their part of the game!! i want murali to play more often!! he's also experienced and u cant get in a unexperienced bowler? isn't it?
12 May 2012
Muralitharan is in a decent form as compared to vettori. So he should be play more often
12 May 2012
yes Murli Is the Best Bowler in the world so .. murli ply at all the in RCB Matches ...........
12 May 2012
Hez the best rcb bowler so far..should play at all times.
12 May 2012
Hez the best rcb bowler so far..should play at all times.

12 May 2012
Greetings from Kidderminster England. Muralitharan should play the next 3 games and we will qualify for the top four. He was excellent tonight agains Pune.It is my 25th wedding anniversary tomorrow and i will be wearing my RCB cap at the party. Good Luck against mumbai, win that one and we will be 2012 IPL Champions
12 May 2012
wud gt an inspiration 4 youngsterz
12 May 2012
he is gud inspiratn for youngsters
12 May 2012
murali is a better option for bowling
12 May 2012
experience is better than a performance!
11 May 2012
murli is better... no dis regard to dan but murali is a legend and more exp
11 May 2012
Without an authentic match winning bowler u cant win T20 games ie part timers hav nothing to do with this lightinig quick format of cricket.....Batting is important at the same time do need to defend wat u hav hardearned with the bat right!!!
11 May 2012
he is far more experienced and can turn things around for rcb
11 May 2012
bring in karthik instaed of saurabh tiwary!!
11 May 2012
yes
11 May 2012
murali is an experienced bowler..... Zak along with Murali would be a spell of experience
11 May 2012
far
11 May 2012
11 May 2012
murli is back wid a bang
11 May 2012
kohli be the captain so tat we can continue wit nannes as bowling is not firing
11 May 2012
he is the one amongst the world's best bowler
11 May 2012
Murli Should be playing and should be used as they did with MI i.e when batsmen try to accelerate as he is effective with his variations and doosra resulting in wickets!!
11 May 2012
murali has the potential and strength to pick early wickets. he has been very economical in respect to his bowling.In T20 cricket if we are able to prevent the opponent in making high scores it would be an additional bebefit for the batsmen to play their innings with a less amount o pressure MURALI IS AN EXCEPTIONAL CRICKETER IN INTERNATIONAL CRICKET AND HE SHOULD BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO PLAY MORE OFTEN
11 May 2012
RCB is doing great job,getting murali back is good,in this format wickets matter a lot,a wicket lead to dot balls and that leads to more wicket and its all over!.so i completly agree with murali playing more
11 May 2012
Murli Magic changed the situation when Smith and Pollard would have cut loose....Murli a MUST
10 May 2012
bcz RCB is lacking bowling attack ..
10 May 2012
he is a legendary player the leading wicket taker for rcb in this season....so he should still remain in the playing 11 and sit out vettori for 2 more games. in those two games we should find out whether dilshan plays well or murali....then swap in vettori....
10 May 2012
the team should be balanced with right batsmen and bowlers, this is where RCB is lagging... with bowlers like Murali within the team it balances out very well
10 May 2012
well murali did play for RCB in de las 2 games n we ended up victorious!!! Hats off 2 Dan 4 callin it rite!!! Team before self!!! Irespective of whoz playin or not,its imp 2 carry de winnin momentum forward n u wudn wan 2 change de team composition n experiment for dat...All de best 4 de remainin games!!! Proud 2 be an RCBian!!!! RCB RCB RCB RCB!!!!! :)
10 May 2012
Big yes..murli is a champion bowler..u need big heart bowler like him for t20
10 May 2012
no... take a chance for new bowlers. because when murali retired wht will do rcb ??? take a chance new bowler for experience.
10 May 2012
y
10 May 2012
he is more experienced
10 May 2012
because good economy rate bowler and take two wickets in every match and he would have been best economical bowler and purple cap holder you can go through his record
10 May 2012
Murali is an asset for which ever side he plays. he is an experieced campaigner.No doubt his experience should be utilised....
10 May 2012
If bowler's take more wickets the target that will be set will be less and the batsmen can play without any pressure and RCB needs muralitharan
10 May 2012
in t20 format both bowler n batsmen should do their work properly
10 May 2012
muralitharan is such a bowler who actually shrinks the field for the batsman..he is the only bowler who decides the runrate for the batsman..
10 May 2012
A attacking spinner like Murali is required to control the batting side in the middle overs. So Murali should be played regularly for more victories..........
10 May 2012
yeh offcourse murli bowled very well..........and he takes wicket when it needs
10 May 2012
Indeed, he has to...
10 May 2012
Yes ofcourse
10 May 2012
stop giving bowling to likes of kohli,dilshan..
09 May 2012
u r extremely right, RCB is proving its batting ability in every match, but bowling is worst in each
09 May 2012
Murali,as all of us know,is a legendary spinner. There are greater things to being MURALI. He has the most unique tactics of taking wickets. He can be so stratagic that the batsman should end up giving no runs at all. I strongly support all those who think,He should be played frequently. He not only adds to the spirit of the team but also gives intimidating overs to the opponents. Seeing him,play on field totallu turns me on,an avid RCB fan. Many people feel,T20 is a batsman's game. But,bowlers can turn around the game,as well. We've seen 1 run victories. Though rare,they indeed happen amongst the best bowled unit. Please play Murali often and help the team win.
09 May 2012
murali is just amazing he should play all the games
09 May 2012
defend
09 May 2012
No question on Murli..He should be in..One more thing, With all due respect, I am still doubtful about the ability of RCB captainship. They never innovated. Never brought any Spinner suddenly for opening. With all due respect, Zaheer Khan should be given rest. Paremshwaran is good. give him another chance. Bowl staright
09 May 2012
"as it is our bowlers are not taking wickets at crucial time so it is good to play Murli for Dan .... and we should improve our bowling or it will be tuff for us
09 May 2012
he is a world class bowler he should be in not out..!!! Murliiiii Murliiiii....!!!
09 May 2012
a great bowler a must play for RCB
09 May 2012
Wankhede is a turning track...MURLI MURLI...MURLI MURLI
08 May 2012
There are few legends when RCB comes across some teams in those crucial matches Murali has to be played
08 May 2012
HE is bowler where he can keep the proceedings undr cntrl,,
08 May 2012
Batting is at its best now but RCB is lacking with the bowlers. So Muruli has to be played in the playing 11...
08 May 2012
Your right Shruti! RCB does hav pretty good bowlers but just hav 2 gt wickets! Usually our batting has been pretty good! Just that only 4 foreign players can b playd n all the foreign players RCB r quality players!
08 May 2012
murali he is not only great spinner of the ball in any pitch he can also hit the ball into the crowd....
08 May 2012
Murli wears 800.....what does vettori wear ??
08 May 2012
yes... he should be given a chance when our skipper is out of form...
08 May 2012
dany should give chance to murli who is in form mithun should be replaced
08 May 2012
I guess It is 90% true.. Zaheer's not in form this time.. !
08 May 2012
The team looks fine just because they've won. I'm all for Murali replacing vettori but Vinay'd be back soon. He's got to get back to his swinging ways.
08 May 2012
The present team combination seem to look good only because of the win. I'm fine with Murali replacing Vettori, but tiwary and vinay to be back soon.
08 May 2012
.
08 May 2012
RCB has lacked bowling performance in this edition of IPL (2012). Muralidharan should be played in every match rest of the season as he lights up the bowling department.
08 May 2012
Retain the performers. As simple as that
08 May 2012
Murali by far has been our best bowler so far this tournament, n moreover we are having all fire power in our batting we miss the potency in bowling so a legend is a must!!!
08 May 2012
when he turns... 800 on his shirt... induces so much fear in a batsman!!
07 May 2012
economy says it all
07 May 2012
Murali is a wicket taking bowler, and that is what rcb is missing. He must be played rest of the matches ,that brings the right balance.
07 May 2012
He is the highest wicket taker for RCB and also has the lowest economy rate.. he deserves to be in the playing XI of every RCB match!
07 May 2012
Harshal patel should not be played...
07 May 2012
bowling wil be look little good if we take him.
07 May 2012
yes
07 May 2012
No one can replace a legend
07 May 2012
we can make any high score wit our batsmen ,but while chasing we hve to b keen wit bowling wel and see to tat we chase a little cntrable one , its al wit bowlers like MM
07 May 2012
yes..he should be played much often..b'cause he iz the only bowler who gives break throughs...wen needed much!!!
07 May 2012
Cmon, Its Murali now
07 May 2012
MURLI 800....Will play the key role against Mumbai Indians
07 May 2012
This should be a team for RCB from battin order gayle,dilshan,ab villiers,kohli,agrawal,tiwary,syed mahmood,V kumar,Z khan, muralitharan,paramsera plzz play with this team
07 May 2012
i agree with you shruthi@rcb... RCB definitely needs an inspiration in the bowling line-up... though we have stars like Daniel Vettori,Zak,Murli,Arvind,Mithun who have performed very well for their respective countries n also their states... but somehow things haven't been falling into place in d bowling department for RCB... the amount of runs they are leaking away is making it hard for the star-studded batting line up to chase down as we have seen it on plenty of occasions... its time that the bowling department starts performing better... n helps RCB to win many more matches and also clinch d trophy this year.
07 May 2012
because he is a good turner of a ball and could take wickets easily!!!!he can bowl different variations
06 May 2012
ya
06 May 2012
I agree with Shruti. The team needs consitent bowling side now. The scene now is that the batsmen are doing amazing and it's ruined by the bowlers at the end. We have a great side of bowling as well which is not upto the mark or used as required. Adding Murli to the side will make a difference for sure, which will take us to better place in the order.
06 May 2012
Two of the world's best spinners, the wise and the Miserly, will be a Deadly Cocktail for the batsmen to handle!!!!
06 May 2012
vettori must be dropped n make muralitharan as an replacement.N finally not d least ab must be made d captain
06 May 2012
If gayle,kohli and AB get out early then the bowling has to go up so i say we nead muttiah or dilshan
06 May 2012
"A great legend like murali will give a huge boost to the bowling department"
06 May 2012
MURLI SHOULD PLAY HE IS A WICKET TAKER...WHILE VETTORI IS MORE DOING CONTAINING JOB....HOWEVER IN CHINNASWAMY VETTORI IS BETTER OPTION DUE TO LACK OF SPIN THERE...
06 May 2012
Yes, Murali is d key and he can control the run rate of anyteam and surely a wicket taker...
06 May 2012
Vettori shud b in the playing eleven..may be they shud drop Vinay Kumar and try out Prasanth Parameswaran..and try to accomodat emurali also if posbl...
06 May 2012
good
06 May 2012
Both Murali and Vettori should play along with Gayle and AB. Vettori should bat up the order and utilize his batting skills as well. Mayank should not try to hit every ball for maximum. Zaheer should attack more and get one or two early wickets. Vinay is not been able to bowl well at the end of the innings. A chance for youngsters like Ronit more may also workout. Just a very good analysis of everyone's strength and matching to the requirements.
06 May 2012
yes Murli should play in place of Dilshan
06 May 2012
HE SHOULD PLAY
05 May 2012
KOHLI MUST NOT CAPTAIN THIS TEAM, GALE AND AB ARE BETTER CAPTAINS WITH LOT OF EXPERIENCE, KOHLI SHOULD NOT EVEN BE IN THE TEAM BASE ON HIS CURRENT FORM.
05 May 2012
Muralitharam and vetorri should play. The pace bowlers are the ones letting down the side. Vinay, Zaheer, Kohli, Patel, Tiawry should not be playing. I guess that we could give Kohli a next chance as a result of his last game
05 May 2012
murali has to play,if anyone feels kholi cant captain as dan, kholi can be helped by dan an kumble. v need a wicket takin bowler in the line up
05 May 2012
Murli must play, even at the cost of Vetori!
05 May 2012
1. Dan is not in great form - so he needs to drop himself 2. Murali is a must 3. Prashant Parameshwaran, Mithun/Apanna, Zaheer, Murali,Dilshan /Dirk are bowling options 4. Gayle to captain - considering his experience
05 May 2012
RCB is clearly lacking a strike bowler..like dale steyn for DC, malinga for MI and morkel for DD..ZAK is not having his best days...need to work on the balling department...
05 May 2012
bowling should be strong
05 May 2012
BECAUSE RCB BOWLLING IS SOOOO POOR
05 May 2012
they shud bring murali in place of vettori
05 May 2012
Yes, Atleast for match against Deccan, Vettori and Murali both should play in the playing 11, with other 2 foreign players being Gayle and AB , for any batting side it would be difficult to play against two legendary left and right had off spinners..
05 May 2012
Jeevi - what are you talking about? The only time Virat Kohli should get near a ball is when he is feilding it or batting. Virat Kohli is not a good t-20 bowler, period!!!!It is tme people use their head to think and not their;;;
05 May 2012
Yeah i do think dat muralitharan must play more often cuz RCB's bowlin is poor n dey need muralitharan to take wickets n nt give away more runs..he is experienced as well..!!
05 May 2012
let murli come in place of vettori..
05 May 2012
Our bowling needs to be stronger because even if we score 200 we are not safe because of our weak bowling.....I hope team management decides to take Murli in place of Mcdonald on Sunday
05 May 2012
@sid mallya, I noticed that most of our team members are not working well..
05 May 2012
Wickets => Opposition loses momentum, lower run rate. This guy was in the reckoning for the Purple cap at the start of the tourney!
05 May 2012
murali should be played he is a match winner,he is here defnitely not to warm the ###.Guys be practical get him in the team.
05 May 2012
3 matches 8 wickets. was our highest wicket taker until last match. that says it all
05 May 2012
Muralitharan is an excellent bowler no matter what format he plays for. The last matches he has played for us has made us witness the same. He takes the most important wickets and breaks the tough going partnerships.. I'm sure he won't let RCB down and that decision doesn't go in vein!!
05 May 2012
Murali is a better option. Vettori doesnt take wickets why do we need him ? If a batsman is needed then any Indian players can fill up Batting strength..remove that Harshal patel hes not in form. make Kohli or Ab captain ..it gives the team strength!
04 May 2012
If necessary (as has been seen) Vettori should sit out to make way for someone better (MM)
04 May 2012
bowling department should be attacking rather than in safe mode...........murali or nannes must play
04 May 2012
need early wickets!
04 May 2012
Yes he should. RCB bowling looks so weak and having a world class bowler like Murali to sit out is a shame.
04 May 2012
Yes he should and Vettori should sit out
04 May 2012
Having one of the best spinners the Cricket world has seen and having him in the ### is more than a reason to play him!!!!
04 May 2012
m with muruli.... he shd be played more.... nywz in batting ly the top 4 plays .... rest are uttr waste... sumtyms sry always it ll be a gayle show... :) so muruli can be easily included.... which strenthens our bowlin.....
04 May 2012
drop daniel nd give chance for MURLI !!
04 May 2012
murli should play each and every match which RCB plays and Vitorri to be rested and AB should be a captain. 4 foreign players should be Gayle, Dilshan ,AB and Murli.
04 May 2012
Nannes is simply wasted!!he should be given a chance instead of vettori.
04 May 2012
After 40 matches the pitches are turning n holding a bit and there is bit for spinners. Murali is a strike n attacking bowler. when u r under pressure his experience would be of great use and when u have problem with fifth bowler y not Murali ?
04 May 2012
A team cannot win without balance. Last year Chris Gayle was special but the bowling was ordinary. Thats why RCB was chasing a total of 200 like a fool that too in finals. That was so ordinary. And this year we couldn't defend 205. Again we are riding on Gayle and AB. RCB is not going to make 190-200 in every match. Bowlers will have to learn to defend 130's and 140's. For defending we need to have wicket-takers like Murali. RCB doesn't ahve a single bowler who can be termed as T-20 specialist. So the least it can do is to pick up wicket-takers in their line up. Vinay, Patel, Aravind are just too ordinary. Vettori can tighten up things but can't take wickets and zak's figure is fixed for all matches. 4 overs for 30-32 runs with a wicket. So Murali is in demand. Talking about batting depth, its a shame if we have to bat below 6 in 20 over game.
04 May 2012
The bowling team needs great inspiration, I personally think Vinay Kumar should be rested, instead should give a chance to S Aravind or A Mithun, RCB desperately needs a good seamer like Kallis and Steyn whom they have lost, Muralitharan can be a great Option to boost up bowling lineup, Vinay Kumar
04 May 2012
Let Gayle, AB, Vettori and Murali be the foreigners! Mayank, Virat, Pujara , Saurabh, Tiwary, Zaheer, Vinay Kumar and Mithun/Harshal Patel. This would be a better option. Even Gayle/Kohli can bowl a couple of overs if required!
04 May 2012
NO
04 May 2012
if sachin is god of cricket....den murli is god of bowling...evn if he does nt do well..his presence in da team..brng good spirit..and increases da morales of other teammates...
04 May 2012
Yes, Murali should be playing, he will take the wicket and breaks the partnerships, thats the most vital part,.. Vettori should make way for Murali..
04 May 2012
Yes he is a legendary spinner unlike Vettori he can control runs and take wickets can field but only cant bat so what bring on a Indian all rounder
04 May 2012
In a number of instances, the bowlers have let us down, sample CSK chasing 205 in Chennai. Last but ball against KXIP from Vinay Kumar should have been a full ball than short one to take us to the last ball.
04 May 2012
HE HAS TO PLAY
04 May 2012
our bowlers are not giving their 100%. murali can give his 800 %
04 May 2012
scvahuicfhauh
04 May 2012
Yes agreed.. Muralidharan is a match winner who can put hold to runs by taking wickets. RCB bowlers also need to win the matches as with all other teams
04 May 2012
Without Murali RCB can not win.
04 May 2012
YES,For sure murali has the capability to take RCB into top four.... get him back...drop vettori as captain and from the team.
04 May 2012
The team already has the likes of Kohli,Gayle,Dilshan,Develiers,etc; The bowlers concern me.
04 May 2012
the team really needs a bowler who can eowl economically and also take wicket especially when team has two bowler who has worst economy in ipl
04 May 2012
He should be played in every match.
04 May 2012
obviously with the steaming form of vettorie.....we shud better drop him.
04 May 2012
DAN is not worthy as he is lacking in the plans.. sooo no more experiments..just make murli to play instead f DAN...
04 May 2012
In my opinion I would suggest to drop vettori and make ABD/VK the captain and play Murli in the team. This would make the batting and bowling balanced.
04 May 2012
Gayle has some stability in batting now.. So we can neglect McDonald or Dilshan and bring back Murali as Fourth foreigner... And Vettori is good since he had better economy rate so far..
04 May 2012
Like,,,
04 May 2012
I just say 1 thing "Vettori should be a brave man drop himself and make murali play like how Sangakara did for a match.Make Virat the captian he has many senior and experienced players around him of likes of AB,Gayle,Zaheer McD and Murali himself.So y bother.Just drop yourself for a game and see the Murali Magic Dan.You'll know". :)
04 May 2012
He is a wicket taking bowler and if he gets back in the team it would be more easier for other bowlers as well in getting an appropriate spells.
04 May 2012
y even nanes is not playing?????????
04 May 2012
Yes. We need murali. BEcause, appanna, murali
04 May 2012
so true!
04 May 2012
The team batting is going good. muralitharan have to play more often. daniel have to rest now. Kholi should be the captain.!!
04 May 2012
our batting line up is quite strong and v have ship saving batsmen like gayle or kohli, wat we lack is fielding..
04 May 2012
he must play
04 May 2012
he s a match winner
04 May 2012
Murali should be played because RCB lack good bowlers!!!!!!!
04 May 2012
Please make Daniel Vettori to sit out and make AB or Kohli as Captain. Play Aravind or Mithun in place of Zak and get in Nannes for Vettori. We have Batting strength but also please look in making the bowling strong.
04 May 2012
yes bowling is more power full if it is not then how many runs make by batsman there is no value
04 May 2012
vettori should be removed and ab devilliers should be made captain and syed mohammed should be played instead of asad pathan and sreenath arvind should be given more chances as he was one of the best bowler in last season......
04 May 2012
We need a team that can take 10 wickets oftenly
04 May 2012
Murultharan is better bowler than Vettori.... Vettori should be rested and made someone has captain..
04 May 2012
Yes murali should be in the team
04 May 2012
Keeping a wicket taking and match winning bowler in the dugout is not a great idea. Make use of him and give one more chance to Aravind also. Do not forget that he was the leading wicket taker for RCB in the last season.
04 May 2012
yes
04 May 2012
instead of Vettori... play Murali in all coming matches ...he is a genuine wicket taker and also economical... In T20 match wickets are very crucial...
04 May 2012
Yeah..Not just Murali get in Dirk nannes. We need some pace in team. As per IPl this year Speedstar have succeeded the most Ex-Morne,Dale steyn. I mean wicket taking bowlers..At one end there is Deccan chargers who bring mathces down wire by posting the total Of 100 And at the other end ITS "RCB" even after scoring 205 couldnt defend the total. So Bring in Some pace..Classies LIke DAN and vettori wouldnt suit this game! i
04 May 2012
RCB bowling stands very weak compared to other teams... certainly muralitharan should be included to win the matches!
04 May 2012
RCB want Murali..Defaaa..........
04 May 2012
IN A 20 OVER GAME THREE BATSMEN ARE ENOUGH TO A A WIN GAME U .... HERE QUALITY BOWLERS ARE REQUIRED ...LIKE MURALI
04 May 2012
rCB need murali
04 May 2012
Yes. There is NO spear head for RCB bowling.I suggest Zaheer and Vinay be "rested" too!! Murali should replace Vettori and Gayle be made the captain.
04 May 2012
Murali is a wicket taker. He is a mystery spinner, much like Sunil Naraine of KKR, as batsmen cannot read him. We have a guy who has won so many matches for Sri Lanka and we make him sit on the ###!!! Please tell me how many matches has Vettori won for NZ with his bowling?
04 May 2012
bowlers to start to attack
03 May 2012
yes
03 May 2012
bowling is lacking his nick!!
03 May 2012
wickets always wins you matches... The present bowling attack is not capable of attacking the opposition with the ball and taking wickets... Totally against the idea of “ The team that bats deeper holds a bigger advantage in T20s. ” because i don't think this team can defend even 250!!
03 May 2012
he should play where pitch supports spinners .
03 May 2012
murli must play
03 May 2012
Against
21 Opinions
A perfect Match fixing . Thats it .
20 May 2012
he should be played in a rotation policy...even though he does well in a match u cant leave other players in the dugout as murali is doing well..chance to every one thats t20
16 May 2012
THIS IS JUST STEER STUPIDITY. TEAM MANAGEMENT COULD NOT TAKE DECISION ON TEAM SELECTION EVEN AFTER 6 DEFEATS. I HAVE BEEN MENTIONING FROM THE BEGINNING TO PLAY WITH VETTORI AND MURALI AND TO DROP DILSHAN. WHAT WE NEED IS A QUALITY BOWLING ATTACK TO HAVE A BALANCE. DILSHAN PLAYED A COUPLE OF MATCH WINNING INNIGS NO DOUBT. BUT DONT FORGET WE LOST 4 MATCHES WITHOUT A GOOD BOWLING ATTACK. ZAHEER,VETTORI,MURALI WITH TONS OF EXPERIENCE MAKE A GOOD BOWLING ATTACK.TEAM MANAGEMENT AND PLAYERS JUST COOL THEM SELVES AFTTER A WIN OR A DEFEAT BOOZING..WE SCRATCH OUR HEADS LIKE FOOLSSSSSS. JUST PATHETIC.
16 May 2012
I don't think Murli needs to be there in the team for every game. T20 is basically batsmens' game and there is plenty of talent as far as bowling is concerned and I think the young guns should also be given a chance.You never know they can also do wonders for the team.We have seen so many "not so popular" faces doing so well for their team like rahane.
11 May 2012
please dont again shuffle with batting.i mean gayle virat..n dilshan alll coming first n if anythng happns abd will have only inexperiencd manishn n tiwari as partners n dat too under pressure...
10 May 2012
Because he just pick d wickets when der s n need
10 May 2012
See Every One Should Be Given A Chance....,,, We Have Seen Young Guns Doing Welll.... So Why Not Other Youn Bowlers in Our Team They Can Be Better Then Murali......
09 May 2012
instead of bowling.. we must look for attack in batting
09 May 2012
though murali gave oly 18 runs, others gave away runs...and the total always comes close to 200...we need All-rounders in playing 11 !
08 May 2012
dont 4get that v went that v did not had any muralis last year but the team was superb
08 May 2012
get murali bak but captain shud not drop himself
08 May 2012
I NEED DANNY BAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
07 May 2012
Muralitharan need not be played that often!We might not be that good at bowling but we do have a lot of Spin options Within the team.. KP Appanna, Syed, Somebody can do the job for us.Either Kohli,Dilshan Or Gayle could chip In with a few overs.Yes, They might get belted, but everyday cant be their day.Even Dale Steyn Will Go for a lot of runs every other day. Where we do lack is the pace Department, With vinay Kumar nd The 3rd bowler ,might it be H.Patel or anybody else, going for a lot of runs.Dirk Nannes Could be played. And Also the batting line Up is vey inconsistent.Chris Gayle cant play throughout the match for us. We need somebody else. What we do need now is Either Rillee or Luke who can be A Finisher at the End of the innings, With Saurabh Tiwary not coming into the Act, And We cant be relying hugely on AB, Although hes been Producing the goods. So, We have to look at more Batting Options nd Depend on homegrown Talent For The Spin Department
07 May 2012
to chase a target
06 May 2012
Our Indian batting contingent is not performing to its potential and kohli also not being in his prime touch will further suggest that Ray would like to field in 3 overseas batsmen and one bowler in Dan! However Dan's been bowling economically but hasn't taken enough wickets, i'm thinking he should do a sangakara drop himself to either play Nannes or Murali but not at the cost of a specialist Batsmen
05 May 2012
We have tried out all options, and even with Murali in we have given away close to 200 runs :( So, we need more slog players...may be McDonald !
04 May 2012
Absolutely right, RCB should try out Karun Nair. He's a batsman who can bowl off spin and will be extremely handy. Let's face it, Muralitharan cannot bat.
04 May 2012
saurabh tiwary should be replaced because he is not a good hitter
04 May 2012
No..What we need is good Fast Bowler. who can threaten batsmen, like Nannes.. not Murali.. Come on RCB.. Bring Dale Steyn Back..
04 May 2012
Plz drop vettori, and make murali IN. Plz Plz do this it will work out. don disappoint us. im great fan for RCB. i LOVE u RCB
04 May 2012
evry time...gayle cnt hit..rcb should depend on othrss.virat s playin lke oneday...
