Aces up RCB sleeve: Gayle, Kohli, AB, Mayank, Zaheer, Aravind, Vittori, Syed, Gayle the bowler
Concerns of RCB: Not much backup plans if Gayle fails and Kohli also fails in batting.
Saurabh Tiwary is half the man he has been for MI last season…Cant keep him in, Not able to drop him - as Kaif is as bad.
Bowlers look good in patches especially when opposition batting team blunders under pressure. And when batting team starts keeping up to the RRR and turns on the pressure on bowlers then even the top bowlers are not able to contain the onslaught.
Advantage on Ashwin - He’s been on top of the competition with Gayle. If Gayle can ace the Ashwin challenge, then Game on - Bring on CSK!!
