This is the team i want RCB to put up for CL for various reasons.
1)Chris Gayle : For obvious reasons. He is destructive with the bat and also can give us 2-3 overs.
2)Mayank Agarwal : Seriously we need to get a better opener . He is talented but when there is so much more talent its sad we cant pick a good indian opener. I feel if possible we should try to buy Manish pandey or Rahane (as they will form solidity to Gayle’s wilderness)
3) Virat Kohli: He i feel is India’s next captain and plays a very pivotal role in this team. his captaining of the team was admirable given the fact the team already had 3 national captains (Gayle, Vettori and Devillers). He is the key player with Devillers to guide the team through and also accelerate in the end.
4)AB Devillers : He is one of the most talented upcoming players in the world. He with kohli will help the team to stabilise and also he can shift gears at will. He also helps us fill the wicket keeping option.
5) Pujara/Kaif: Both of them are not the best choices for a T20 Team. Pujara is going to replace dravid in the test team soon but for T20 we need someone with flair especially in this team n Kaif is just the older version. If possible we should try getting Rohit sharma( that would be a dream ) but still a Chipli or Fazal.
6) Saurabh tiwary : He had a bad IPL but he should be groomed as a good finisher as uthappa has become. He has the talent its just that he looks lost.
7)Vettori: Don’t think more has to be told about him. he will be vital to control the run flow and also some late runs
8) Aravind: He was exeptional in the IPL . Hope he continues the good form.
9)Mithun/Syed mohammed: Depending on the form . I really want to see Mithun develop as a bowler but then if its a spinning track go with Syed he dint do any harm for himself during the last IPL.
10) Nannes/Langveldt: Depending on fitness and availability
11): Zaheer khan: Again fitness is a big concern .
What we lack he is a a good indian second spinner. A ojha or Karthik or Mishra will be too much to ask for but some like murtaza is a good buy . We need 2 genuine spinners in indian conditions and can’t always depend on Gayle’s offies.
This is the best team i feel we can put up with Pomersbach as a replacement as i feel he is a really big talent.
As we have seen in the previous IPLs Australian players make a lot of impact not just marsh n hussey n hayden but also the little heard names like pomersbach n blizzard . Another talent in the Aussie league is carseldine i find him a real handy batsman for T20s.
The main concern tho should be to get indian talent and what we want is a spin bolwer and a lower order batsmen. Hope we do well!
