Positives-
  They have a wonderful team with a batting lineup led by the pyrotactician Chris Gayle and a solid middle order comprising of Virat Kohli , Ab de Villiers and the explosive Daniel christian/Moises Henriques. The spin dept. looks good to with legends dan vettori and muralitharan. The addition of murali karthik enables experience to the team. Come to the pace dept., there is a lot to choose from with vinay,zak,jaydev,pankaj,sandeep,mithun,aravind,parameswaran,harshal and rp singh.

Negatives-
Bowling at the slog overs, has always been a concern. Although the have tried rectifying it with good buys, one can only hope that the out-of form RP singh and vinay kumar(returning from injury) spearhead the bowling attack.The devastating form of Saurabh Tiwary has to be addressed properly and one can only hope he does will for rcb, this time around.
However the main cause of worry could be the loss of our very own think-tank Anil Kumble. Kumble has always been the reason for Rcb’s success even while leading the side, to being an anyalist. We will miss him at a time when we need him most need him.
This season Virat will be captaining rcb. The team will miss a lot of experience at the middle from dan vettori and zak , since they are likely to be sidelined this season.

Finally-
  The addition of murali karthik and Rp singh however will serve the experience for the team. Murali karthik can lead the spin attack with Muralitharan,while Rp singh can spearhead the bowling in the absence of Zaheer Khan.. considering all this the best playing 11 would be

  1.Chris Gayle
  2.Cheteshwar Pujara
  3.Virat Kohli
  4.Ab de Villiers
  5.Mayank Agarwal
  6.Daniel Christian/ Moises Henriques
  7.Sheldon Jackson/Saurabh Tiwary
  8.Vinay Kumar
  9.RP singh
10.Murali Karthik
11.Muttaih muralitharan

However since AB won’t be available for the first 2 matches and pujara for the first 4 matches,the team in their abscence should be
  1.Chris Gayle
  2.Mayank Agarwal
  3.Virat Kohli
  4.Daniel Christian
  5.Saurabh Tiwary
  6.Moises Henriques
  7.Sheldon Jackson
  8.Vinay Kumar
  9.RP singh
10.Murali Karthik
11.Muttaih Muralitharan

THE ABOVE TWO TEAMS HAS PERFECT BALANCE OF SPIN,PACE AND A GOOD MIDDLE-ORDER AND FIERY OPENING PAIR.
HOWEVER MOST OF YOU MIGHT SUGGEST PLAYING BOTH ALL-ROUNDERS. WE COULD DO THIS ONLY FOR THE FIRST 2 MATCHES IN THE ABSENCE OF AB DE VILLIERS.

It is important to play Muralitharan for all 15 matches(except chennai match) and yes even in the bangalore pitch. He is a very effective bowler with experience and adds balance to the team.
However of the other all-rounder we can play either Christian or Henriques, depending on who is in good form…In the absence of AB the 4 foreigners are,
1.Chris
2.Muralitharan
3.Christian
4.Henriques

And in the presence of Ab
1.Chris
2.Ab
3.Muralitharan
4.Henriques/Christian

ALTHOUGH DILSHAN IS IN GOOD FORM, I THINK WE CAN’T PLAY 2 FOREIGN PLAYERS TO OPEN, SO UNFORTUNATELY DILSHAN HAS TO MISS OUT!

Yeah but then, middle-order will struggle and we can’t even make use of the pace bowling that christian and henriques bring in to the table!

Lots of choices to choose from…....just be judicious in the combinations arena n it will do half the job for us…..the other half depends on their form no matter how good the player is…...a final touch up is also needed that is our endless cheers n immense support which is not a big deal…..right?:p

sunny is an explosive batsman but i dont think he has a cool head to be a supporting batsman to gayle. he might try to go himself and loose his wicket. mayank who is in unbelievable form should open.
playing 2 muralis will slow us down on the field we should play only one we’ll get 5 bowlers and slot in one more batsman and for spin gayle can turn his arm around

Nice analysis ! I saw sheldon jackson playing few ranji games and he does look like a batsman who can score fours at will and also I dont agree with the inclusion of saurabh tiwary at all ! Absolute nuisance , gayle , henriques , dilshan and murali should be our four foreigner s for the first two games as dilshan is coming with loads of runs behind him and it will be interesting to play both muralis in our team ! He is better than syed Mohammed and appanna any given day ! Our top 6 should be gayle, dilshan, virat, sheldon/asad pathan, moises henriques, mayank agarwal and keeper arun kartik ! Four bowlers would be two muralis , vinay and rp/zak ! With our 3 all rounders being foreigners the team has I bowling options
