PHASE 1 : Dipankar Das 's review for rc's performance
The 1st phase has recoded a awesome 57.14 win percentage for team R.C.B in which they won 4 out of their 7 matches. Despite the disappointment start with a lose against the K.K.R team in the season opener the team returns like the wounded lion and fight like a champ to win the next 4 matches in a row. In this 4 matches they not only won but they played like one unit and just ruined the opposition team. But again the bad luck strikes and the team lost the next 2 matches in a row for which the players also had to blame for some extend of the loss. Its because they had not played up to their potential that's what I feel because I hate if R.C.B lose. This is my take on the performance of team R.C.B during the 1st phase of I.P.L-2010.

 

PHASE 2 : Dipankar Das 's review for rc's performance
The second phase of I.P.L.-3, has provided a mixed result for team Royal Challengers. Once upon a time it looks like that the last years runners up team will not be able to make the cut for the final 4, who will qualify for the semis. But still they keeps their hopes alive by maintaining a healthy run-rate to be able to qualify for the semis. In this phase team R.C.B. recorded a mare 42.86 percent of win, due to their 3 wins out of 7 matches. But whatever matches they had won in this phase was not that they just won but they just demolished their opposition in their path to victory to maintain a healthy run rate. This run rate helps to make the cut to the final 4 when 4 teams were struck at the same point at the end of the league matches. Thanks to some individual brilliance along with a great team work which makes it difficult looking task possible. Also the luck of the team is very good because if team Daredevils or Knight Riders would have got an another win or a good run-rate in their back then the scenario would have been different in the final 4 teams for the semis and the hope of getting to the semis to get another chance to conquer the I.P.L. trophy this time would have been remained a dream only and we the fans should have to waited for one more year to see the team R.C.B. as a champion. But a last I am very happy that the opposition teams bad luck runs and team R.C's good luck strike at the right time and they make it to the semis. This raises the hopes to see the team as champs this year. Hence, this is my take on the 2nd phase of RC's performance and hopes that you all will like it. Thankyou.

 

PHASE 3 : Dipankar Das 's review for rc's performance
The third and final phases didn't provide the most desired result that was accepting by each and every die hard fans of RCB. I as a fan of RC expecting that the team will make a make up for their lost in the hands of MI's in their last league match of IPL-2010 as well as they will also make up for their last years lost in the hands of DC in the finals of IPL-2009. But they failed to do so. They got beated in the hands of MI again in two consecutive matches and this time in the most crucial match of the two which shattered all the hopes to see a RC as a champion this time. This happens due a irresponsible performance due to team in this vital match. Its seems like that they failed to handle the pressure of the big match or they forgot to tackle the pressurize situation of big match. In this match, first the bowlers led the team down of giving the opposition a chance to pose a big score in their own ground in front of their home crowd and the rest was done by the irresponsible performance of the batsman. But the target which posed by the MI's on that day was not such a big that cannot be achieved by the world class batting line up of the RC team but they made a mess of it all and the match gone away from the hands. This breaks the hearts of RC fans who hopes to watch the team as a champ this time. But they compensate for the loss to some extent by winning the third place play off match. This can also be considered as the revenge of their last 3 defeats in the hands of DC in a row including the loss of the last years final IPL final match. In this match the bowlers done a splendid job under the guidance of Jumbo and destroyed the opposition batting line up and restricting them to a low score. The rest of the job was done by the batsman. This win gives us something to cheer for team RC again in this year at the CL T20. This time I'm hopping at team RC will bring the CL T20 Cup for the fans. Best of luck team RC for CL T20 2010. That's all, thankyou.
