PHASE 3 : Govind Sudarsan 's review for rc's performance
RCB were one of the favourites of winning the ipl-3 along with hydrabad deccan chargers.RCB looked a very strong team in the paper.but considering the class of the players in that team i think they should have won ipl atleast 2 times.now coming to foreign players...JACK KALLIS was he top run getter but to be frank he lost us few matches,...i remember the match against dc were we are in a position to win........but v lost and kallis shared more than 50% of the reason....he converted 2 and 3 into 1 run.he played so slowly that players in the other end had to compensate for him aswell...remember rahul dravid got out on 49.......he was playing a wonderful knock but kallis pressure forced rahul to get out playing an inside out shot to symonds....and eventually RCB lost the match..............KP-THE BIG GUN was impressive in the end...initial struggle by kp also proved fatal for us........his 1st match in ipl-3 was in MA CHIDAMBARAM STADIUM.CHENNAI.he was in by the 18th over and was giving a perfect exhibition of forward and back foot defenseive shots...rossco-the firepower failed badly....he did not contribute anything.the most annoying thing was dropping mark and vandermerwe fully.......when kp and rossco failed they should have been rested........RCB dint do that.DALE steyn was average.,....uthappa played superbly......played many match winning knocks......but his keeping was poor....rossco flooped...so boucher should have been there and kept wickets aswell........BOUCHER TOO CAN HIT THOSE NASTY BLOWS..........kumbles captaincy was good but not as good as in ipl-2.playing RAHUL DRAVID at no.6,7 was the most funny part of ipl.dravid should have opened every match.kallis should have bben at 2 down....DRAVID WAS NOT ATALL UTILISED.........IT WAS SICKENING...when given the oppartunity dravid scored many........next virat kohli was good and bad at times.............white is playing sooo well for OZ but he has not done anything big for rcb........rcbs bowling is very poor...praveen,vinay,pankaj,appanna.............only kumble was too good........as usual...........vinaytook wickets but gave away plenty........praveen did not know to bowl in death........steyn was pretty good though.rcb fielding was eithor too good r too bad.......they should improve,....WE THE MIGHTY FANS OF ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE WISH THEM ALL SUCCESS TO WIN THE CHAMPS LEAGUE AND NEXT IPL..........I DEDICATE MY HEART AND SOUL TO RCB....i will be happy if someone really appriciates my review..........I LOVE RCB BECAUSE I LOVE DRAVID MORE THAN MY LIFE. CRICKET IS RELIGION DRAVID IS GOD. RCB!!!!!!!!!!!RCB!!!!!!!!!!!!!RCB!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RCB has poor bowling unit ..we need to look at more allrounders like Watson ..and we need one more quality spiner other than Kumble . Ross failure was more than dis appointing ..probably blowler have sorted him out ..Manish pandey was all over and kallis increases presure ..instead of him we should played boucher and had a regular spin blower Nayan ..I agree witn the assement , hope Kumble and coach takes note of it and plays the right combo ..too much was left to Uthappa not fair -Raghu
