S.Tiwari was successful with MI in the 3rd season when he got the opportunity to Bat at the top of the order.
I think RCB should introspect their batting order, as C.Gayle at the top makes us too much dependent on him and predictable for oppositions to plan against him. We should learn from RR who have used Watson well and shuffled their batting order according to the situation.
For instance one of the playing XI, batting and bowling order could be
- I think moving C.Gayle down the order will remove our over-dependency on him.
- By moving 3 Indian batsmen top of the order, we would allow them to play freely without any pressure. I am sure they will perform better.
- AB.Devilliers is a terrific finisher. He should only be sent after 13 overs
- Our bowling looks to be a little weaker, Bringing Murali will strengthen it.
