Two in two for RCB!!!
Good start for RCB this season, still a long way to go.
A new team rcb has made a positive start this season. In the Last couple of seasons story was pretty much the same, sheer brilliance by few individuals but our bowling let us down, we couldn't win the key moments.
Bowling looks neat, starc is a good bowler and addition of aaron adds extra pace and zip that can skittle batsman even in the shorter form of the game. Chahal looks to be a bright prospect, he has good variations and batsman are finding it hard to pick him.
Key as usual is death bowling and how do we contain the big hitters. We need to take all the catches and hitting stumps direct is another area that needs to be improved.
Overall its a good start to the bowling effort and I am sure this will continue and not just be a supporting role for our star studded batting line up.
Our batting has always been our strength, Big 3 has become Big 4. We want Gayle to be back fit soon. Yuvi may have had a bad T20 WC, but as he showed in 1st match he is a impact player and will surely come good.
Kohli and ABD add stability + power hitting and that's there strength. They can adapt to various situations which makes them even more key to the team this IPL. Patel is looking good and we would need him to give good starts to the team as the likes of Gayle/Kohli get there eye in.
Batting unit has started well, if the pitches remain slow in UAE we would need them to get 160+ scores when batting first. Once IPL shifts back to india, 200+ scores and huge chases will make them even more important. Our tail seems to be longer but one or two in that lower / middle order need to come good whenever needed.
We have had great moments in the past IPL, we have come close and fans have always believed in RCB. Chants will continue for sure and will be even more audible then ever this IPL.
