All know that Gayle has become an important part of RCB after his thunder and lightning in IPL 4.So there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be in RCB.
But very difficult to digest this.I know nobody is trying to accept Boucher as a team player and luckily he atleast got selected to KKR where he floped to perform.I know nowadays he’s not in the best of touch with the willow and it always happens in a players life.
I know we have AB as the main man behind the stumps but atleast bring this guy.I’m sure he’ll give his best if he gets a chance to play again for RCB.The reason beyond this is that Mark Boucher is a famous wicket-keeper batsman and has kept wickets for SA since many years and got team out of trouble many times.
Not only for SA but also for RCB.He was the first ever RCBian to get Man of the Match award when he samshed Mumbai Indians a 19 ball 39 to seal of RCBs first ever victory.He was the second leading run-scorer for RCB in the first edition ( Dravid being the highest for us) in IPL 2008 where RCB didn’t have a good tournament.Many people didn’t wanted Mark Boucher as a player in the playing XI because it wastes a foreign player, which could be useful in bringing a batsman or bowler in his place.
I know what all will be thinking,“AB being there, why we need Boucher?“Yes that is there but keeping bench strengthened is merely a better option.
Also Boucher would been more affordable and would cost less to buy a great player.Please Mallya Sir sign our old folk.
Don’t know about others but I like Mark Boucher.He is a great keeper and great batsman in crucial times as well.May you get selected for RCB,I’ll be happy for you.
