2 specialist spinners should be a part of RCB's playing XI this IPL

Verdict

Though RCB have great T20 specialist pacers in Ravi Rampaul, RP Singh and Pankaj Singh, still playing Kartik Murali as the lone spinner may not prove to be a great idea at all, especially with the likes of Daniel Vettori and Muttiah Muralitharan waiting in the wings. Vettori and Murali are two of the best spinners in modern day cricket and not using their services may prove to be a colossal waste of talent for this RCB side. Both spinners are undoubtedly a class apart from Kartik and can definitely use their combined experience to swing a crucial game in RCB’s favour. So playing either Vettori, Muralitharan or even both along with the specialist pacers may just be the winning formula what RCB require at the current moment!

“ Spin plays a crucial role ”
“ Part timers can always chip in ”
Dhiraj Salian: We have the services of specialist spinners like Murali Kartik, Muttiah Muralitharan and Daniel Vettori. When they bowl in tandem, it's difficult for the opposition to tackle them. As Murali Kartik said recently that slow bowlers are crucial in the T20 format. A good spin attack always comes in handy when the target set is low.
Tania Dey: RCB strengthened it's squad during the auction by picking up RP Singh, Ravi Rampaul, Pankaj Singh and Jaydev Unadkat. We should make full use of our fast bowling prowess. In T20 aggressive fast bowling is what pays off in the end. Fast bowlers have always been among wickets in this format, if we require a second spinner we have options like Dilshan and Chris Gayle.

17 Apr 2013
spinners !! they can bring game under pressure!! in whatever condition the team is..middle overs play a descent segment ...more pressure more tension..and more n more entertainment !! RCB is one of the most entertaining teams in IPL so far..so...spinners are game changers !! we need them!!! :)
17 Apr 2013
yes
17 Apr 2013
its good option
17 Apr 2013
2 spiners is ok for the team murlitharan and vettori .there is no work of keeping third spinner in team.part timers can do the work.
17 Apr 2013
Superb over by Ravi Rampaul in super over and awesome batting by Abe De villiers belting two sixes. The team should play Henriques always along with two spinners in RCB away games which is outside of Bangalore.
17 Apr 2013
Murali Kartik said recently that slow bowlers are crucial in the T20 format
17 Apr 2013
kholi
17 Apr 2013
yes there should two spinners as they take the pace of the ball it will not be easy for the batsmen to hit against the spin. Muralitharan and KP appanna r the best choice i think.
17 Apr 2013
however the team spinners like muralidharan should be there in team...
17 Apr 2013
Spinners are important for rcb
16 Apr 2013
hi
16 Apr 2013
its always good to have spinners .in t20 cricket every ball is crucial.so the spinners have a good chance to have a twist in the game
16 Apr 2013
yes
16 Apr 2013
2spinners r needed
15 Apr 2013
playing with 2 spinners is a good choice for T2os.
15 Apr 2013
it will work well
15 Apr 2013
spinners will play an important role
13 Apr 2013
its right
13 Apr 2013
dhiraj is right
13 Apr 2013
pinch hitter also failed to score against spinner
13 Apr 2013
dear rcb for match against csk please in dilshan and out murli.and if u want spinner remove keeper ab will do it add m.karthik because our bowling is good and look at batting if we add dil gayle.mayank,dilshan,virat,ab....... owsaome
13 Apr 2013
it is depending up on the pitch condition...
13 Apr 2013
really needed
12 Apr 2013
amazing
12 Apr 2013
2 specialist spinners is really needed in Eden garden Pitch.
12 Apr 2013
two spinners is must in T20 format !!!!!
12 Apr 2013
It depends upon the nature of the pitch RCB is playing on! As most of the Indian pitches are towards the spinners, I vote for it :)
12 Apr 2013
yes definately 2 spinners play a crucial role in this format. murali on murali is good option to go with becuase both can control in the death overs also that will give ab de villers to get into the side
12 Apr 2013
Yes, we require two spinners as we need to control the runs
12 Apr 2013
spin does play a crucial role in the match...
12 Apr 2013
The main aim of spin bowling is to bowl the cricket ball with rapid rotation so that when it bounces on the pitch it will deviate from its normal straight path, thus making it difficult for the batsman to hit the ball cleanly
12 Apr 2013
Spin plays a crucial role
12 Apr 2013
Spin plays a crucial role . so true
12 Apr 2013
In india, spin is an important part of any team. Perhaps the bangalore pitch assists pacers more, but murali has shown that spin has a great role to play. We have Dan vettori, and 2 muralis. All class spinners!
12 Apr 2013
2 specialist spinners is a must. coz they not only contain runs but also take wickets.

we need allrounder spinner
11 Apr 2013
We have the services of specialist spinners
11 Apr 2013
RCB Vs SRH
11 Apr 2013
it would be great as this ipl is turning out to be a great platform for spinners like sunil narine and amit Mishra. so this wouldn't be a bad decision at all
11 Apr 2013
murli and karthik must and should for rcb
11 Apr 2013
spinner can restrict opponent at low score
11 Apr 2013
i think havin' a combination of 2 spinners ,3 fast bowlers with 5 batsmen and an allrounder is the best option 4 RCB
11 Apr 2013
Spinners have crucial role in bowling
11 Apr 2013
Yes definitely we need to have two specialist spinners playing. Muralitharan is a wonderful bowler has not lost the magic touch he has. Opponents try to play Muralitharan very cautiously not taking risks, at the same time they would definitely target Murali Karthik. As we all know Murali Karthik is an intelligent bowler he could utilize this opportunity to get the crucial breakthroughs for the RCB team. With 2 specialist spinners very well backed by the seam attack RCB is in for a great chance of making 2013 IPL theirs :) . Go RCB Go! Arrrrrrrrrrr Ceeeeeeeeee Beeeeeeeeeeeeee!
11 Apr 2013
d combination of d two spinners dt v hav..makes our bowling strongr..murali karthik n muralidaran.. d only question is if zaheer returns where do v play him.. spin options shudnt change though! i feel!
11 Apr 2013
If u ve two world class spinners in Murali and Vettori, then u ve to play them !
11 Apr 2013
zaheer should be in team today
11 Apr 2013
Spinners can turn the match so 2 of them r must needed
10 Apr 2013
spinner are effective for wicket taking
10 Apr 2013
when the target set is low.
10 Apr 2013
specialist spinners
10 Apr 2013
RCB has only one spinner in thier attack, Murali Karthik. They should bring in KP Appana. Spin is good for RCB. Take spinners take wickets
10 Apr 2013
bringing back vettori can be a better solution
10 Apr 2013
This season rcb improved a lot in bowling and fielding. this change will definitely shows a positive result, let keep fingers cross.
10 Apr 2013
yes
10 Apr 2013
yup u hv 2 grt spiner of all time 8 gud overs frm thm n match is ours
10 Apr 2013
It becomes easy if there are specialists. Muralitharan plays a very important role in the team, while in the other hand karthik is bowling well too.
10 Apr 2013
Specialist spinners can turn the game and tackle the difficult situation of the match. Use of part time spinners is risk taking act. Specialist can defend the low total as well and captain can easily rely on them like Murli and Vettori.

we shud go with 2 spinners becoz dey have os of experience which we cud use
09 Apr 2013
its better to play with 2 spinners
09 Apr 2013
it is better to go with specialist spnners because we do not have a proper part time bowlers
09 Apr 2013
2 specialist spinners to put other team in back foot.
09 Apr 2013
good decision
09 Apr 2013
We have the services of specialist spinners
09 Apr 2013
must be rcb is not very strong in bowling so we need....
09 Apr 2013
ya true y shoulD WE KEEP DILSHAN N GAYLE AS PART TIME SPINERS SOMETIMES THIS WONT WORK
09 Apr 2013
ya true
09 Apr 2013
Only spinners will control in midddle overs not fast bowlers
09 Apr 2013
Gayle,Mayank,AB,Kohli,Tiwari,Vettori,Vinay,Zaheer,M.kartik,Unadkat,Murali
09 Apr 2013
my 4 foreigns are Gayle, DeVilliers, Murali, Vettori. because dilshan is not in form.. and we have good strength of fast bowlers can choose from Vinay,Unadkat,RP Sing,Zaheer khan.... Rampaul can be picked replacing Vettori on seaming pitches like rajastan.
09 Apr 2013
we have seen that India has win lot of match in home country by spinner only
09 Apr 2013
indian pitches are well made for spinners
09 Apr 2013
spinner will surely hep to save run in slog over
09 Apr 2013
i agree bcuse rcb spinners murali and muttiah have a lot of experiance which is handy in containing the batsmen in the middle overs....
09 Apr 2013
spinner will surely hep to save run in slog over
08 Apr 2013

08 Apr 2013
Muttiah Muralitharan and Daniel Vettori
08 Apr 2013
fans
08 Apr 2013
well we have seen in all previous ipls and also the couple of matches in this ipl that the batsmen are finding it difficult to play the spinners and score freely specially on slow tracks of indian sub continent its an added advantage to have two spinners in ur squad and put some extra pressure on the opposition team
08 Apr 2013
TIME HAS COME FOR 3 SPINNER AS IT SEEMS FROM YESTERDAY MATCH
08 Apr 2013
i like daniel vettori
08 Apr 2013
because one spinner not a good in adeth over so in the deth over u can try to follow up the wicket
08 Apr 2013
s its good option because the batsmans fail to score for spinners even in poowerplay also...
07 Apr 2013
s it would good option because the batsman fail to score against spinners in powerplay....
07 Apr 2013
There is Always a need of atleast two spinners to balance the team.....ofcourse spinner can build pressure on opposite team

well it look like a bowlers IPL this season... N definitely i would say spin plays a prime part in this short format of the game
07 Apr 2013
GOOD.. KEEP IT UP
07 Apr 2013
always spin takes an important role ..muralitharan,m.karthik and dilshan can manage them well balanced...
07 Apr 2013
we should use muruli and karthick both. we already saw how they bowled against mi. both give only 50 runs in 8 overs.
07 Apr 2013
Murlidharan and Murli kartik are showing good temperament and bowling really well and controlling the runs.Considering the experience of Kartik in County and Murlidharans career experience they both should be included and will play a vital role in RCB's victories
07 Apr 2013
gayle and dilshan are not a good part timers in ipl.we cant get oppositions a few loose overs
06 Apr 2013
bla
06 Apr 2013
in short form of cricket spinner are very effective for wicket taking bowling
06 Apr 2013
they need spinners in team
06 Apr 2013
itts makers choice
06 Apr 2013
yes spin plays a crucial part
06 Apr 2013
I agree with the views
06 Apr 2013
When we have quality spinners like Muralitharan and Murali Kartik, we should play them as they both are economy bowlers and have the knack of taking wickets also.
06 Apr 2013
It also depends upon the match stats and the dew factor of the ground
06 Apr 2013
yh
06 Apr 2013
just like our squad vs MI we need to have two spinners nd AB will come next don't know what will happen
05 Apr 2013
yep they do!!! they play a key role!!!
05 Apr 2013
2 SPECIALIST SPINNER NEEDED DANIEL V OR MURALI AND MURAL K OR APPANNA
05 Apr 2013
from today the gayle game begins.
05 Apr 2013
it is all because of gayle and murali.
05 Apr 2013
wonder ful win for the rcb's
05 Apr 2013
T20 MATCH SPINNER BOWLER IS MUST.
05 Apr 2013
SPIN PLAYS
05 Apr 2013
totally depends upon pitch... IN case of Bangalore pitch we should for 4 fast bowlers plus one spinner and in chennai and kolkata we should for 3 fast bowlers and 2 spinners
05 Apr 2013
. A good spin attack
05 Apr 2013
RCB
05 Apr 2013
vs KKR they should get Karun Nair out
05 Apr 2013
if u have two quality spinners like murali and karthick it would be foolish not to play them they r not only good defending bowlers but also ca get top batsmen out
05 Apr 2013
its backfired us when we went for part timers many times. safe to play with 2 spinners depending on the nature of the wicket
05 Apr 2013
Spin actually reduces the run scoring rate of the opposition and having world class spinners in our ranks and not playing them is absolutely crazy We have to play either murali or vettori every game as IPL in the past has proved that spinners are the ones who have a better economy than fast bowlers ! Part time spinners can be given 1 or 2 overs maximum as they dont havr variety and more often than not will go for plenty
05 Apr 2013
i vote
05 Apr 2013
i vote
05 Apr 2013
JUST LIKE IN 1ST MATCH WE NEED 2 SPINNERS
05 Apr 2013
yes we should go with 2 spinners . becoz we are having vettori , murali karthik and muralidharan they r more experienced than any other bowler on our side.
05 Apr 2013
yes
05 Apr 2013
This match shows why we need 2 spinners in a team. Well done RCBians
05 Apr 2013
spin plays a big role
04 Apr 2013
it would be better if two sinner come batsman should be a part of playing 11
04 Apr 2013
yes murli d appanna should be in playing XI
04 Apr 2013
it confuses the batsmen
04 Apr 2013
Two experienced and specialist spinners will change the game for sure. RCB has always been the trend setter and others will surely follow!!
04 Apr 2013
It's always good to attack with spin in T20's. Helps to build pressure on the opponents. We have world class quality spinners in the squad.
04 Apr 2013
i guess this should b d playing 11 gayle, dilshan, kohli, tiwary, agarwal, arun karthik, vettori, murli, arvind, r p singh n vinay kumar
04 Apr 2013
Spinners are economical most of the times in this format
04 Apr 2013
Murali can change things around
04 Apr 2013
better to go with muttiah.
04 Apr 2013
batting first can make rcb win because their a man name chris gayle the lord of lords.
04 Apr 2013
daniel vettori and muttaiah are key bowlers for rcb
04 Apr 2013
Better to go with muttaiah
04 Apr 2013
BAT FIRST Is GREAT FOR ALL RCB AND HIS FAN TO WIN THA MATCH
04 Apr 2013
yup
04 Apr 2013
All-rounders are the key for the team to give better performance
04 Apr 2013
Spinners can any time turn the game
04 Apr 2013
I agree
04 Apr 2013
Specialist spinners are the match turners....
04 Apr 2013
specialist spinners will have a great role in a limited over match.we cant take risk by giving it to part timers always.
04 Apr 2013
spin is very good in t20!! it plays a crucial role.A good spin attack always comes in handy when the target set is low.
04 Apr 2013
Chinnaswamy pitch is night mare for fast bowlers. But spinners always do good here. RCB should play Muralidaran and Murali Karthik.
04 Apr 2013
yes karthik nd murali
04 Apr 2013
Until the stumps are rolling, anyone one can Ball..! RCB.. RCB.. RCB..
04 Apr 2013
yep
04 Apr 2013
we surely need shewag
04 Apr 2013
I think Muttiah Muralitharan and Daniel Vettori should be those two because they are pretty experianced people and can bowl and take some crucial wickets
03 Apr 2013
indian pitches are more suitable for spin bowling
03 Apr 2013
definitely becuase spinner can change the game any time
03 Apr 2013
i agree
03 Apr 2013
A good spin attack always comes in handy when the target set is low.
03 Apr 2013
right
03 Apr 2013
spinners haad always an edge over the pacers.the slow it is bowled the better it is
03 Apr 2013
2 spinners right cohice
03 Apr 2013
there is a need of atleast 2 spinners in the team........
03 Apr 2013
Of course,@least 2 spispinners should be a part of RCB's playing 11,because things would change in the field if the fast bowlers go runs,spinners can try and control and grab some wickets as the pitch would be favourable,as we should'nt keep our spinners like Murli and others off the field as they might chnage the game in any over or any ball.
03 Apr 2013
in india spinners hold the key because of slow tracks
03 Apr 2013
yes
03 Apr 2013
captain and coach should decide these thing based on venue of the match and opposite team.It may be advantage and disadvantage depends how you use them.
03 Apr 2013
i feel rcb can manage with dilshan chris and kholi as part time bowlers
03 Apr 2013
spinners should be picked up as they are strengthened the department of spinners
03 Apr 2013
it is better to pick 2 spinners as rcb have strenghtened the spinners department and that should be built on.
03 Apr 2013
2 Specialist spinners should be included in playing XI team not always but should considered depending upon the pitch condition. Pitches especially like Chennai, Mumbai
03 Apr 2013
we have a lot of allround seemers........so it is better to pick 2 spinners.......
03 Apr 2013
it will be right decision from team management
03 Apr 2013
Playing two Murali's is a gamble which may pay high dividend.
03 Apr 2013
specialist spinners
03 Apr 2013
RCB
03 Apr 2013
they have of advantage of having more Indian bowlers, thus they have to vary more about the batting line up.
03 Apr 2013
Rcb should play Vettori or Murali and they should play Dil,Gayle, and Karthik
03 Apr 2013
yes myst

The thing Bangalore should be really worried about is their batting. I understand we have very good batsmen in AB, Kohli and Gayle, but when they played Delhi i was wondering if Bangalore lost a wicket of either Kohli and Ab early then the batting looks really weak all of a sudden. Tiwary has been missing and AB could be asked to do the keeping to get another batsman. They should have strong batting till 7 , someone like Christian or Henriques should be batting there. That is a key component of winning IPL, batting deep.
18 Apr 2013
Playing two spinners depends on where the team is playing. As far as I have seen this season, Bangalore , Delhi , Rajasthan, Punjab have produced seaming tracks. So we could play 4 seamers very easily in these tracks. We need two spinners only in Chennai, Hyderabad , Kolkata and may be Mumbai. So for most of the season a 4 man seam attack should work out fine.
18 Apr 2013
I think there is no need for two spinners in the team. As we have seen we're having trouble closing out matches, how did the Delhi game at home go to a super over!? We should get another top order batsmen to add the Kohli, Gayle, Dilshan and AB, then hopefully we'll confidently close out matches
17 Apr 2013
you are totally wrong my dear friend
17 Apr 2013
ya
17 Apr 2013
the 2 spinners thing is really a difficult equation to balance..we should go with 2 spinners only when we play at slow pitches..and provides some turn..otherwise its not required.and as far as the batting is concerned the lower middle order looks weak..as we witnessed it yesterday against dd.and i what i think is rcb should drop arun kartik(wk),de villiers should be the keeper,bring some body in likes of pujara,tiwary or sunny sohal.moises henriques should be part of regular squad.cheers
17 Apr 2013
T20 is harsh as far as spinners are considered apart from few exceptions. Pacers will be a better option since they have a lot more variety like the slower ones, bouncer, off-cutter, leg-cutter. Bouncers are an important aspect of T20, spinners cannot bowl bouncers.
17 Apr 2013
A pacer has to be sacrificed if we pick 2 specialist spinners and that would be suicidal for a t20 game.
17 Apr 2013
makes fielding a slow unit
15 Apr 2013
yes part time bowlers can do
13 Apr 2013
one wil do greatand this is t20 and spinners are hit
13 Apr 2013
it's not at all required
12 Apr 2013
we saw wat happend to murali in today's match he wasn't dat effective....i guess it's better dat rampaul or any other foreigner lyk vettori or even dan christian give another chance
11 Apr 2013
they hav the potential do do it...! but they fail to do it!
10 Apr 2013
Its not necessary.Restrictive bowling in T20s is less valuable when compared to aggressive and attacking bowling.Wickets are more important than conservation of runs.
10 Apr 2013
i think zak hav 2 b in da team
10 Apr 2013
we have gayle n dilshan who can do a decent job.what we require is our full timers to strike hard.
09 Apr 2013
shld pick a pacie in place of 1 of the spinners
09 Apr 2013
if we have good quality spinners, in the team we can do something, but then too they will get smacked!
07 Apr 2013
There is Always a need of atleast two spinners to balance the team.....ofcourse spinner can build pressure on opposite team
07 Apr 2013
spinners play a crucial role but they will get hit !!
07 Apr 2013
on slow pitches 2 spinners are must but on a pitch we saw in bangalore we need a quality seam bowler
07 Apr 2013
in a t20 format we need to concentrate on batting power .... if u go with spinners u must have spinners like sunil narine (but he is not in RCB) but we have better bowler like murulidharan so one specialist spinner is more than enough, and part time bowlers can bowl well (like dilshan,gayle...) so if u concentrate on 2 spinners u must leave in batting or medium pacers....hence no 2 spinners are needed and murulidharan is enough
06 Apr 2013
its always against
06 Apr 2013
We saw against MI batting was worst only Gayle and Karthik batted well. So get 4 Overseas for batting i.e. Gayle,Dilshan,ABD and Henriques than Christian. Zak,Vinay and RP will manage.
06 Apr 2013
murli is enough we can use gayle for 2 overs and dilshan is there too
05 Apr 2013
Muralidharan must play. he is dangerous bowler he can atleast bring down the run rate,.. Choosing allrounders will be good. As we will have couple of options, in worst sotuations. instead of having spealist spinners.
04 Apr 2013
i suggest that we should not have 2 spinners since we already got parttimers who can chip in useful overs like gayle,dil,captn,etc n we shud get in an all-rounder instead to strengthen our batting n pace bowling like christian or henriques
04 Apr 2013
All rounders should be include in the squad as we depend on CG!!!
04 Apr 2013
not required
03 Apr 2013
rcb have strenghtened the pace department and should build on that
03 Apr 2013
