The IPL carnival is just around the corner and all the usual cliches apply, yes things are heating up, yes its going to be bigger, badder and better than ever before!


For RCB the squad is coming together nicely, Our captain Dan the man is back at the helm of things with his pace spearhead Zak joining the team as well.While most stars are tweeting about how much they love being a part of their respective IPL teams. For the red, gold and blue brigade, its like coming back to family. Coach Ray is the genial but strict father figure, Mr Speechly the indulgent uncle. Gayle the slightly intimidating older brother , the rest of the squad like an extended family. For a bunch of guys that spend most of their time traveling the world, Bangalore is really a homecoming!


 Things started off with a practice match played between RCB A and B. while unfortunately I didn't pay much attention to the game I was engrossed in finding out the expectations of the players from IPL5- aggression, passion, hope, a desire to do well and a real team spirit, the RCB boys have it all. While newbies like More, Nair and Zol are eager to get a lot of knowledge just by being with the squad. For CM Gautam and Ryan Ninan this is going to be a chance to stand up and be counted. Even the veterans are feeling the buzz Zak expects IPL5 to be lots of fun both on and off the field, while Luke thinks this IPl 5 is our year to shine. Everyone we spoke to had one goal in common though, to take it one step further than last year and get the title under our belt.


Its customary for everyone to expect great things from their team, but in all honestly with a strengthened coaching staff, some great new additions to the squad with Murali and Vinay coming in the RCB squad is looking leaner, meaner and stronger than we have ever seen it!


A few days till our first match, Here is hoping that - Gayle storms, Zak attacks, Dan delivers, Murali spins his magic and RCB fulfill the potential we all know they have!
