Already Zak been injured has caused a lot of problems in Indian pace attack as well as has weakened the RCB pace attack for the tournament of Champions League which will be held next month from September19-21 as the qualifiers stage.The initial match is going to start on September 23 between Royal Challengers Bangalore from India and Chevrolet Warriors from South Africa.All know that Chevrolet Warriors is not an easy team to beat,so immense hard work is required.The conditions become more worse that Zak would not be a part of RCB in this year’s tournament and would be badly missed by RCB.I think now Nannes is the key here along Vettori and Aravind.We need to work on bowling a bit.
But now the biggest problem is think is the isolated middle order.Middle-order has always been a problem if opening pair fails to deliver.Except Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers,no one had a significant contribution to the middle-order.Mohammad Kaif,Asad Pathan Saurabh Tiwary and Asad Pathan are the main pillars of the lower middle order batting line-up for RCB.All know about Saurabh Tiwary how devastating he can be.So a lot more is excepted from him.Mohammad Kaif and Asad Pathan need to prove themselves in this tournament.Asad Pathan needs a bit of confidence from coaching staff and a bit of technique with a little patience in his batting.Mohammas Kaif needs a bit of confidence in his batting as well.
My Squad goes as follows:
AB de Villiers
Vettori,Mithun,Aravind,Nannes and Dilshan could be the most probably the fifth bowler
If someone like Mithun or Aravind goes very expensive,we could use Kohli and Asad Pathan as the cover-up for the concerned bowler.
Sorry not to mention Gayle because I don’t know whether he’s in for our squad in Champions League or not because he was a replacement for Nannes.Gayle could be signed by RCB for next IPL.
