all people are saying that RCB has qualified to play-off’s only because of chris gayle,if gayle departs early our team is useless…..i too agree for that but the main thing is he wont depart without destroying the plans of oppositions…..........u make the gayle to depart early today and see the result ab de villiers will be the next gayle!!!!!!!!

if Gayle gets OUT early, we have the ranks of ABD VK Mayank Tiwary Kaif Pomersbach And Vettori who can bat a bit !! there are 7 others who can do the job , These Players are quality cricketers and we should not panic if that happens,the WAY CHRIS played CSK Sunday was simply magnificient ,He played out Ashwin and Bollinger and then went after Morkel and Raina Thats a sign of a good Cricketer !! AB D Got out was unlucky , he should’nt have gone all guns blazing knowing that they needed to score at 6.45 an over!! I think we should open with Pommo and Gayle then with AB Kohli and Kaif we can look at 150 as our prime target ,if things go well first six then think about 160 ,if the middle overs are scored at 8 an over then a 180 is possible !! Bowling wise Zaheer Khan should do the trick for left handers like hussey and Raina >> If these both get going then RCB are in a tough scenario ... Dhoni is not such a major opponent ! WE have to go after >> VIJAY RAINA HUSSEY BADRINATH’S WICKET >> WE did it ONCE why NOT again

GOOOOO RCB,cheers !!! \m/

yes i do agree with this, as gayle has played an important and pivotal role in every victory that RCB has enjoyed , and at the same time, the most worriying fact is after early departure of chris gayle. but right now, we can only wish and pray that chris gayle should
continue playing as he did in the earlier matches.
KING CHRIS GAYLE….......ALL THE BEST.  RCB…...............KEEP WINNING…........

This is the first really meaningful post I have seen which focusses on the actual issue/weakness we have.

Personally I feel its a mental thing.

Lets take two scenarios and how we approach it given that Gayle gets out early:

Scenario1: We bat first

Here, it is important that we note, there will be no pressure of chasing. So if Gayle gets out early, what we should be careful of is, not to go into overcautious mode and stop scoring runs. Doesn’t mean we will have hit every ball out of the ground, but we should certainly keep rotating the strike and score at least 7 runs an over up until 11-12 overs. We are looking at 75-80 by that point without taking risks.

Do we have the quality to do that?

hell yes.. we do.. AB, Virat, Kaif , Luke certainly are capable. After the 12 over mark we can be a little more aggressive and score atleast 8-9 runs.. so whats the score we will then be looking at? 155..atleast… surely a fighting score

Scenario 2: We chase

Now this is more a tricky situation. In this case a lot of onus lies with the bowlers. they need to absolutely restrict chennai under 160. If they do, eevn without Gayle we can chase anything below 160. Please note that Luke Pomersbach is a highly under rated batsman in our ranks. He can demolish bowling attacks.

So where does the actual issue lie.. I think the Punjab match showed that.. i.e if we bowl first, concede 180+ and Gayle gets out early and we wilt under pressure.

Say suppose we do concede 180, what then!

We all know this is more a pscychological thing. As much as its wrong to restrict Gayle from scoring naturally, If I was the coach I would probably ask hi to just stay there at the crease and not take risks. why cos(again) its a psychological thing that will be there in the oppositions minds if he is there at the crease. The onus of scoring quickly should be taken by other batsmen in this case(Virat, AB,Luke can do that.. Even Asad Pathan can do that, if he is in the tem) Just that Gayle needs to stay at the crease till about 10-12 overs. Please note that thei good bowlers are only Ashwin and Bollinger and they dont bowl all the 20 overs. Other bowlers will have to bowl

Now,why would he fail :p

I think we’re underestimating ourselves here.
Apart from him,we do have Kohli,Ab who are in the form of their lives!
The yet to fire Tiwary,Mayank and Luke!
