The RCB (IPL 2010) edition magazine is on the cards and as a part of the Publishing team I’d like to conduct a poll feature where in the FANS would pick their RCB playing XI TEAM. Based on the fan responses we’ll be publishing it as ‘RCB’s Most wanted’
1. Kindly stick to the 4 foreign players norm.
2. The final XI would be featured after calculating the total no. of votes.
3. Do furnish with reason as to why have you picked those players. (Optional)
4. 12th man too could be included
1. Anil Kumble.
2. Rahul Dravid.
3. Virat Kohli.
4. Manish Pandey.
5. Robin Uthappa.
6. Praveen Kumar.
7. Abhimanyu Mithun.
8. Ross Taylor.
9. Eoin Morgan.
11. Roelof van der Merwe.
12. Kevin Pietersen
Trust me guys, its tough question..!! KP is one of my Favorite batsmen, but considering his current and T-20 records i’m forced push him as 12th Man and would like to replace Merwe with Steyn for some matches and White is in gr8 form…!! Anyways its ur call now….
Having S. goswami as Wk will provide RCb with a placce to have an overseas Fast Bowler in the team ofcourse the first choice will be Dale Steyn or if not then Dillon Du preez, which will definitely be useful in strengthning RCB Pace Attack
1. Manish Pandey
2. Jacques Kallis
3. Mark Boucher (wk)
4. Rahul Dravid
5. Ross Taylor
6. Virat Kohli
7. Praveen Kumar
8. Vinay Kumar
9. Abhimanyu Mithun
10. Anil Kumble (capt)
12. Van der Merwe/ Morgan (pinch hitters)
@vijaymallyaboys- Even I would prefer Boucher over Sreevats owing to differences in the team during CLT20. :(
@ Disha:- But havin S. Goswami will give Strength to Bowling as well as Batting Departments, havin only 20 overs to Bat, on Goswami or Boucher, will hardly make any difference, but that will give way to Vd Merwe in the team in other words a benefit of Pinch Hitter/good Spinner/And a great fielder in the team, So that’s Why I may prefer the Above Eleven from me.. :D
And what differnces in the team were there during CL T20, I mean i Couldn’t get that.???
@ Mahesh:- Hmmm.. may be but… its difficult to get Kallis Out. I dun think.. it will be on thoughts.. for any one.. else.
But Ur other thought was convincing of trying White in off Rossy, or any other foreign Player…
to some extent i agree with Mahesh. See this is Most Wanted 11 of RCB irrespective of the player availability. Kallis strike is not so impressive i agree, but his bowling contribution ll allow u 2 increase one batsmen to ur side.
@ Everyone - Glad to know that you’ll have taken the selectors job seriously.
@ Mahesh- White replacement for Taylor is understandable, but as I mentioned this is a poll for the magazine. Just want to know the players the fans want in the team, an account of IPL 1,2 and 3. (Irrespective of whether they are available or not)
@Rishabh- by differences during Champions League I meant ,that though Sreevats by all means has the making to replace Boucher but he is a killjoy of sorts during not so good or ‘fighting lost cause’ games for RCB . and that was the reason he was kept out of the games by the coach too.
