RCB vs RR:-Positives from the Loss, Cheer up we will come back strong.

Even though we lost 3 in a row things can change quickly with 2-3 good wins. Never mind, we will win the rest and come back strong. Be Positive smile

Rahane and Dravid start for Rajasthan Royals:-

The Rajasthan Royals began batting as The Wall came in along with young Rahane.  Zaheer Khan was looking good but return of Aravind proved a little costly for Royal Challengers Bangalore as he went for way too many runs. After a long break away from injury, Aravind tried his best but Rahane got the better of him but Aravind was still looking good but nothing worked out for him.  Rahane was looking to find shorts all way around as it was a beauty of pitch for batting. The partnership lasted for 62 balls as as Zaheer Khan and Vettori got things under control.

Rahane’s Century and Shah’s Blitz:-

Rahul Dravid tried to hit the ball out but was stumped by ABD Villers of Captain Vettori for 25 runs . In came man in form Owais Shah to give company to Rahane and together they went on and on to build up a mammoth score for Rajasthan Royals.  Rahane, who missed out his ton in earlier outing by 2 runs did not want to miss this time and he went on and scored 103 runs not out till the end of the 20th over of just 60 balls with 12 fours and 5 sixers in his name. Shah on the other hand made a quick fire 60 runs of just 26 balls with 5 fours and 5 sixers and in the end Zaheer Khan got him caught by Vinay Kumar. Rajasthan Royals managed a well made 195 runs.

Mayank Agarwal gave the much needed start:-

Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal went all out from the word go. Mayank was on fire as he scored  at fast pace as he accelerated the scorecard. RCB went on to make 42 runs in just 4.4 overs a start that was much needed for them. In this Mayank contributed 34 runs with 3 biggies and another 3 knocks to the fence. Chris Gayle also whacked a Six but unfortunately both Gayle and Mayank fell in quick successions and scorecard read as 42 for 2 in 5 over’s.

The Middle-Lower order Batsmen tried their best but in Vain:-

Virat Kohli and AB De Villers got out too early on as they tried to settle things down. S.Tiwary whacked a big Six but went away for 17 of 16 as he was bowled by Trivedi.RCB needed 95 runs of 35 balls as kaif who replaced Pujara was batting along with Captain Vettori.Trivedi got the better of RCB batsmen picking up 4 wickets haul,he got the lower middle order batsmen as the target was a little to high to achieve for RCB even though they gave in their best.  

Positives from The Match:-

Even though we lost the match a lot of positives could be taken in account.

1)  Mayank Agarwal looked in supreme touch and is looking bright for future matches to come.

2)  Return of Aravind holds good for RCB even though he

    did not look in good form in his return match but he will find his rhythm soon and be a dangerous bowler for the opponents.

3)  Daniel  Vettori  got back in his form being the most economical bowler for RCB along with Zaheer Khan who also looked in good touch with the ball.

So Cheer up FANS I know we have got 3 losses in a row but remember 2-3 good games can turn things around quickly and we will come back strong. Even though all will feel bad that we lost do not worry we have many more to come and we will be back to winning streak from next one.

y don't they send kaif top of order to stabilise batting woes.he's sent at the lower order where there's nothing much to prove.and then he's made as culprit.RCB should try the batting order change.

Another positive.Tiwary back to his dangerous hitting.He will be a good player for us in the future.

remember reading a article about Aravind wanting to bowl 6 dot balls in a over this kinda always reminds me of 4,4,4,4,4,4 by Rahane!! understand he was back from an injury but u cant miss ur line and length for 3 overs in a row!! Its time to bring back Syed or Appanna and do away with the aravinds and Bhatkals for a while atleast!!! Routing for RCB always!!

i was there in the stadium n the crowd was amazing..it was jam packed and every one cheering RCB..it was amazing but many cheered Dravid also nd thus even RR got the support..RR batsmen were practising frm 4:45 or so;loss is dissapointing but we will bounce back strong ..come on RCB...All the very best....RCB is still the best.

In every match we are taking positives but not winning.. :), It is the time to pick best 4 from foreign players. Even though vettori is economical but not taking wickets. I feel best pick is Gayle, Dilshan, Mcdonald and Muralitharan. Please drop saurav tiwari and give chance to other local players. Batting order also should be changed. Once top4 got out thats it. So we should keep some players in 6th position

Return of Aravind holds good for RCB?!
allen-abhishek on 16 Apr 2012, 10:58 PM
There is lack of aggression by bowlers and batsmen are not in form. It would be good if RCB can get planning right before each game, else its expected to see RCB in lower down the points table list
