It was astonishing to see some bizarre tactics against KKR.

1. 5 fast bowlers on a slow track
2. Henrique didn’t bowl a single ball, even after Mithun was hit at 9 runs per over
3. Why open with Mithun, when you have Unadkat (who took 5 for in the last game) & Vinay who is the highest wicket taker in IPL. Bowling in the first 6 overs is always tough, especially for the one who is playing his first IPL game. When you are defending 115, you should assume that you are playing just 15-17 overs and hence utilize it with your best bowlers.

Also there are no good domestic spin options in the team.  Traditionally, in IPL, wickets get slower towards the business end due to summer heat. RCB is stacked with umpteen fast bowlers, but only 2 left arm spinners.

Think tank, you are on million dollar payroll, please think and think right!

They picked Muralitharan (but they couldn’t gauge that he is well past his playing time, just like KXI did with Gilli) Did not concentrate much on local talents (Karnatakan players like Stuart Binny).

Would like to correct you here. RCB has not picked any genuine fast bowlers but medium pacers. Also as you said righly they dont have any quality spinners barring Murali Karthik to some extend. Both Muralidharan and Vettori are well past there prime. Strong teams like MI and CSK have atleast one genuine fast bowler and a quality spinner which RCB lack. Also whats appalling is the quality of local talent they have picked. None of them have clicked so far. Examples are plenty, Karun Nair, K L Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Mithun , Syed Mohammad, Abhinav Mukund, Arun Karthik etc etc. Compare this to a team like RR which has a knack of picking unknown players and turning them into stars.

with additional bowlers purchased during auction we expected bowling to be better however the bowling is most horrible when compared to last three years.  Last year too we didnt have great bowlers but we lost the do or die match against deccan mainly because of poor batting , we couldnt chase a small total.

This signifies that team work is key to win matches, we just cant say gayle will blast the bowlers and we are happy. 

Further, our support staff is very poor.  I feel only RCB is the team which has same support staff for 5 years ( Ray Jennings) and we are not producing the results, so next year definitely change in coach and good support staff (batting and bowling coach) who are world class , not Mark O’Donell and Venkatesh prasad who are average.  Get someone like Gordon Greenidge, Aravinda DeSilva, Aaquib Javed, Gary Kirsten(if he is interested as he will be keen to coach IPL).

Also RCB doesnt have good local talent, get support staff to watch local matches, get talent and back them for 2-3 matches.  Eg: K L Rahul and Karun Nair.  Nair flopped with bat but why was he not given one over to bowl ?  K L Rahul opener but forced to come down the order.  We cannot do that with talent, back them only then we can win IPL.  IPL cannot be won only with STARS and Foreign Players. RCB is an example.

Learn from RR.. Yagnik, Samson, Chandila, Trivedi, Binny good local talent who are not stars.

Blame it on Kohli’s captaincy also. He should adapt and know that this is not like captaining a national side (which is picked based on tried and proven talents). Dhoni is smart in this regard, he acts according to the team (National Team / IPL Team). In IPL team, its a different thing wherein you should work out with 4 foreign players, selected national players and rest will be local talents who are not yet proven and actually they are seeing this (IPL) as the stage to prove their talent. So Kohli should be soft & nurture them (make it happen through them, rather than banging huge expectations from them). I have also repeated that Coaches should definitely change. The team lacks innovative ideas (like how RR is floating Watson in their team without having the feel of depending solely on him)

couldnt have said it better, spot on! its cuz kohli is nervous always tries to bowl out the worst bowlers early. if u remember he always gave moises 2-3 overs at start too. but that doesnt work. bowl them in the 6 - 14 over mark.

RCB botched it up right during 2011 auction. They betted heavily on Puajara and Tiwari - USD 2.3 millions spent on the two with hardly any returns in 3 years. Just to put things in perspective, with that kind of money we could have bought Rahul Dravid + Amit Mishra + Dale Steyn + Michael Hussey at the auction. Because of lopsided spending on Tiwari/Pujara, we couldnt afford to buy a single capped domestic spinner. Actually had Chris Gayle not being left unsold at the auction, for 3 years RCB would have been right at the bottom with PWI, KXP etc

Guys.. agreed to all the points listed in this topic. But let’s back our players atleast till we are out of contention. We have spent our valuable time following RCB so we definitely have the right to raise our voice. Let’s do the introspection of the team selection later.
