It was an amazing Season of IPL RCB had. We fought hard and battled it all way long, broke many records and marched all way long.We played Top quality Cricket but we lost the finals ...
IPL Season 4 :-
After losing first few games, most of them had written RCB off in this IPL and after the washout against the RR it had looked even more difficult to make a comeback.Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers were doing their bit and were playing some very good cricket but in vain. Nannes injury and Dilshan’s return in mind made RCB draft in Chris Gayle. As soon as Gayle was drafted in, it was like RCB just got some super power from somewhere. From thereon on it was RCB all the way. Gayle whacked a century against KKR and then it was no looking back. Dilshan had got an excellent opening partner and he also got positive vibes and started playing some real good knocks. Virat Kohli and AB were the Pillars of the middle order for RCB. We won 7 games in a row. All the teams were beaten up and were left clueless by Superb Team Work shown by RCB. We even became the table toppers to leave the rest of the other teams behind. There was more in store for us as we even got qualified for the Champions League.Gayle became the Orange Cap holder in this IPL.
Moving into the finals :-
After being defeated by CSK in the 1st Qualifying finals where Virat Kohli played a fabulous knock of 70 runs but in vain, we truly deserved another chance to make it to the finals yet again. We faced Mumbai Indians who were supposed to be a tough contender and yet again Gayle played a class innings that Mumbai Indians were left helpless and RCB went into the finals.
The Final Battle: -
After playing such an excellent cricket throughout the IPL, it was a big achievement for RCB becoming the table toppers and cruising into the finals to face CSK. The toss did not favor us as CSK batted out. We tried our best but things went wrong. We played very good cricket but sometimes things didn’t go our way. Credit to be given to Vijay’s and Hussey’s opening partnership even though our bowlers bowled their heart out. When we started the chase, unfortunately we lost Chris Gayle in the very first over. Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers tried their best to chase the target but we fell short of it. Nevertheless, we played top quality cricket but we lost.
RCB’s Find of the Season:-
RCB had many players who were find of the tournament. J.Syed Mohammad came out and proved his wroth in the team. He would surely chrish his scalp of Sachin Tendulkar whom he got stumped by bowling a beauty turner. S.Aravind holds a good future and he gave us many proud performances sharing the opening ball with Zaheer Khan and proving his worth in the side. Young Mayank Agarwal also rose to many occasions and played his part well. These are the young guns to watch out for in the near future.
Champions League, here we come :-
Its time to take the confidence from IPL 4 to do well in upcoming seasons. Its time for the Champions League. I am sure we are going to perform very well in The Champions League as well as in remaining IPL seasons.
The Support RCB got from its fans was truly massive. I am sure none of the other teams holds such a strong support for its team. The home crowds were just amazing and even the fans away supported RCB to the full. So friends, let’s keep supporting RCB all way long and
Lets shout out and say aloud RRRRRRCCCCCCCBBBBBBB RRRRRRCCCCCCCBBBBBBB RRRRRRCCCCCCCBBBBBBB
