RCB has taken a real gamble by going for Yuvraj Singh for a monsterous 14 crore and in the process exhausted half thier auction purse of 30 Crore. I dont understand why RCB tends to put all thier money on a few players than looking to build an alround strong team which is a must for winning a tournament like IPL. This year there is a possibility of the tournament being played in South Africa and if thats the case the decision to invest 14 crore could back fire big time as Yuvraj has a weakness against short pitch deliveries. With a clear need for good bowlers it was important that RCB invested most of their money on bowlers. RCB didt even bid for Mitchell Johnson who went for 6.5 crore to King X1. It would have been wiser to invest in some one like Johnson at less than half the price for Yuvraj. I just hope that the investement on Yuvraj does not backfire like the way it did for Sourabh Tiwary.

Splurging nearly half your auction purse on a player who is not in the best of form off late and has been exposed by the bowlers the world over for his weakness against short pitched bowling is stupidity at its best. Sorry Mr Mallya this is not horse racing where you put all your money one jockey. This is cricket a team game and to win a tournament like IPL you need balance in the team. To get that balance you need a good auction purse and need to be clever in bidding. I can bet that this year its going to be the same old story repeated for RCB. I think RR, SRH, DD and Kings X1 have made really good purchases so far at the auction. Just take a look at the team for RR Watson, Rahane ,Binny, Faulkner, Samson and now they have added Steven Smith and Hodge for cheap price. For RCB i think P Patel and Albie Morkel have been good buy but i dont understand why you would pick up an expired player like Muralitharan who is past his 40s. And surprise surprise RCB didnt bid for any of the Indian Bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami and Amit Mishra.

Buddy I dont think you should take the analysis by a player who sold his country for a few crores and then got banned from cricket seriously. If you ask me RCB has made a mess of this auction too. They could not even use the Right To Match card for any of the players in the end as they ran out of money after splurging 14 crore on Yuvraj Singh. The only good buys are Albie Morkel, Parthiv Patel and Mitchel Starc to some extend. They went into auction with a single motive of getting Yuvraj Singh at any cost and thats never the right approach. He would have been a good buy in the 3 to 5 crore range but the move to invest half of the auction purse is just beyond anyones imagination. Yuvraj Singh could end up becoming the new Sourabh Tiwary for RCB.

They could have picked up may be two or three good indian playesrs with the same money lile M Vijay, Dinesh Karthik and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Also where is the back up for big players like Gayle and AB. Every team has gone with the approach of creating a back up for foreign players excpet RCB. So if you have a situation where Gayle or AB gets injured then you can kiss the IPL good bye,

Well i said this and I will say it once again. One of the basic problems that is affecting RCB is the lack of cricketing brain. We need people with cricketing brains representing RCB in the auction period. Unless that happens it would be the same old story. Rewind to the first season of IPL and i dont know how many people remember the team the owners of RCB picked up. It was a test team and RCB ended second from the bottom. Season 2 was far better with Anil Kumble playing an active part in selection.Fortunes nose dived again in Season 3 with Million dollar baby Sourabh Tiwary proving to be a disaster. This was the season when they let go off players like Dale Steyn, KP, Dravid and Uthappa. 2011 saw a turn around in their fortunes with the entry of Gayle whom they bought as a replacement for an injured Dirk Nannes at the suggestion of Anil Kumble outside the auction. 2012 and 2013 proved disastarous again with the team owners letting Anil Kumble go MI and persisting with some below par Indian players especially bowlers and support staff.

Now come back to present circa 2014. Our wise owners decide to part ways with the underperforming support staff and bowlers from the previous season and instead look to put all the eggs in one basket in the form of Yuvraj Singh a player who has been exposed by the bowlers as recently as the India Australia series and who doesnt have a great record in IPL to show. With another 5 players to be bought they are left with 1.8 crore (least for any franchise)and virtually no possibility of RTM to be used. God save RCB. So the moral of the story is some one other than Mallya has to become the owner of RCB. Some one who has the vision and cricketing brains to pick the right players.Till then Rest in Peace RCB and supporters we arent winning the IPL. I know it sounds harsh but thats the reality.

We paid too much to buy Yuvraj than required.
Gayle
Partiv
Virat
AB
Yuvraj
A Morkel
Starc/Rampaul
Aaron
Dinda
we need 2 more indian players….(hopefully bowlers)


We could have bought Southee, Mitchell McClenaghan, Philander, Cummins or Ryan McLaren at a cheap rate instead of paying 5cr to Starc…..... n saved minimum of 3cr

hope yuvi is in form
he like to bat in bangalore…v have made good pics…v shouldnt have wasted money for nic and murali…however i feel there r many batsmen who can win the game even if the target is 200…and if yuvi fires he s equal to 3 indian player…however two spinner..two fast bowlers…and two batsman..total 6… 30 lacks and below each…watever team is v all ll support rcb

They have 7 foreigner..tomo thy ll pic only indians for sure…mayank rtm

if v get 5 players also its ok…at the end of the day only 11 play in field and thy must b strong,,i think rcb has tat 11

Guys there is nothing wrong in being optimistic but as a RCB supporter i am least impressed with todays auction strategy by RCB thinktank. And like I said it in my earlier post its a question of common sense and having a cricketing brain which the owners of RCB lack as evident from the auction strategies all these years. When you have retained your top three players and left with a limited purse of 30 Crores to pick the remaining players its important that you get the right balance to the team by spending wisley. Goinng after Yuvraj is not a bad strategy but its just that they didnt have the common sense to see where to draw the line. In my opinion Yuvraj is only worth max 4 Crore and not a penny more than that. We could have bought guys like Dinesh Karthik and Uthappa together in about 10 crores. This would have meant we have a solid opner to partner Gayle and another solid Indian middle order player who can be back up wicket keeper too. That would mean leave out Parthiv Patel whom we bought for a crore and Yuvraj which means a saving of 5 crore straigtaway. With that 5 crore we could have bought a quality Indian fast bowler like Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Mohmamad Shami and picked up a back up option for Gayle and AB in either Finch or David Warner.

And for those who still think that Yuvraj will get to play at one of his favourite grounds (Chinnaswamy) let me tell you that in all likely hood this years IPL would be staged in South Africa due to general elections. And that means Yuvraj Singh would be fed with short pitched stuff by the opposition bowlers on fast and bouncy tracks. And the mere fact that he is commanding such a high price would mean tons of expectation and pressure on him when he is on the field.For all we know he may be the next Sourabh Tiwary in the making for RCB So i am sorry this auction is also looking as hopeless as before.

I think its just a investment on Yuvi.A good allrounder in all conditions and thats for no reason did he get select for T20 worldcup,and importantly skipper VK has tremendous faith in him.On top of this RCB could make a decent buys like Albie,Starc,Rampaul and Aaron and tommrow probably local guys could make a way into the team. What else you expect.

A dangerous and solid top order(Gayle,Parthiv,Virat,AB) with good allrounders(Yuvi, Albie) followed by T20 specialist bowlers (Ravi/Starc ,Aaron) and probably local spinners like Shreyas Gopal(economical)

Guys u cant ask for more smile

Guys….

RCB did well….i think they wanted 11/12 good players instead of buying 20-25 players which they were doing earlier….So i still think, this is perfect team….
ONly what RCB need now is, min 3 local Batsman and 1-2 spin bowler and 1 more fast bowler….

I still feel, RCB should go for Naman Ojha and Pankaj singh for sure from the todays unsold list.

Then we will have perfect team, which will b well balanced with
==> 2 spinners including yuvi and also one part time spinner as gayle if needed….
==> 4 quick bowlers( albie, Starc, dinda and varoon)...
==> And we all know…Albie and Strac are very good allrounders as downthe line…...So i think, this is best team what we have compared to last 7 years:
1> Gayle (BAT/SPIN)
2> Parthiv (wk)
3> Virat (BAT/BOWL)
4> ABD (BAT)
5> Yuvi (BAT/SPIN)
6> One more Explosive Batsman from local pool.
7> Albie (FAST BOWLER/BAT)
8> Starc (FAST BOWLER/BAT)
9> varoon (FAST BOWLER)
10> Dinda (FAST BOWLER)
11> Spineer…
