There seems to be a misconception among many about the role of a finisher. A finisher is not a dasher from the very outset but rather someone who can stay at the wicket and rotate the strike. A finisher is usually someone with a very calm mind and is astute while they are at the crease. Former greats like Miandad, Ranatunga, Klusener, and Bevan placed great emphasis on taking singles and placing between the gaps, they would frustrate the opponents by scoring boundaries by deft touches and try to farm the strike as much as possible. They are experts in damage control and disaster recovery. The best finishers in world cricket today are Mike Hussey, Dhoni, Eoin Morgan, Yuvraj, and Misbah Ul Haq. All of them have one thing in common and that is to stay at the crease and take the match as close as possible to a victory even if it means going for the big shots against the best bowlers in the death overs.

Team RCB are blessed with four great batsmen who will be able to play the role of a finisher. They are none other than Gayle, Kohli,  A.B DeVilliers and Dilshan. Once Gayle gets his eye in, then the game is finished for the opponents but the one drawback is that Gayle almost always opens. Kohli does not give up easily and can stay in as long as possible but he needs to bat up the order. The real finishers in the team are A.B.D and Dilshan. They are both capable of walking in after the fall of 2-3 wickets within the fourth over and rescue the team or come in during the 16th over and hammer the bowlers. Hence, the crucial batting positions of Number 5 and 6 should go to A.B and Dilshan.
The team should probably comprise of:
Mayank or Pujara
Raju Bhatkal
Syed Mohammad

this is just one side of the coin you should also take into consideration that our best players should play the most deliveries and also considering dilshan and ab de villiers form there is no way that anyone could displace their positions but yes we can try it for initial matches and if mayank and tiwary hit form then this can be implemented

Gayle and dilshan are opening for RCb.
i think if Tiwary bats at no.4 and AB at no.5 then AB will stay till the end and play according to situation.
morover both Kohli and AB have similiar batting style, to get settled and then start unleashing themselves. so tiwary will act as cushion to up de run rate in between them.
AB sure can find odd boundaries n tick singles easily.

Awesome note.
I believe we need to nourish a local talent to become a finisher,someone like Arun,Gautam or Asad Pathan.
Players like Mayank Agarwal and Asad Pathan are good players but their inexperience in big stages and their approach towards the game,shot selection are the things which is not allowing to make them a successful finisher.
I know they would work on it and make it to the big stage.
