Ravi Rampaul raring to go for RCB

Ravi Rampaul raring to go for RCB

Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Sunil Narine took centre stage while Ravi Rampaul flew under the radar but he was as important in West Indies’s 2012 World Twenty20 campaign, getting breakthroughs and taking wickets at the death to help WI to their first World Cup title since 1979!

The medium pacer from Trinidad & Tobago pacer was injured early in 2013 and missed WI’s games against Zimbabwe but built up his strength and rhythm playing domestic cricket in the Caribbean. Now fit and firing, he’s ready to run in hard for Bangalore and replicate the magic from the WT20.

Here is what Rampaul had to say to the media on the sidelines of a RCB training session.

His new skipper Virat Kohli will want him to hit the lengths, lines and stumps the way he did in Sri Lanka. "Hopefully I can transfer that performance in this year`s IPL," Rampaul had to say about that.

"Hopefully when the IPL kickstarts, I am raring to go."

On playing in India

The medium pacer said that he has a lot of experience bowling on all types of wickets, even Indian pitches.

"I have played a couple of Tests and One-dayers in India. Hopefully, I will deliver this time too. I am just looking forward for the action to commence," he said.

On WI’s strength in T20

Rampaul said the West Indies have made a lot of impact in Twenty20 cricket, which is reflected in so many West Indians being picked up by the various IPL franchises.


"RCB is shaping up well as our batsmen are looking in good form. I want to be part of the team. Only thing I just need to work on my batting for the selectors to take note of it," Rampaul told reporters.

He also added that he is looking forward to work with the bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad.

When asked about his WI teammate Chris Gayle, Rampaul said, "Having such a player in the side, not only boosts my confidence, but also bodes well for the team."

Ravi Rampaul is certainly a very wise decision. He should play especially for bowling in the deaths if RCB has to win. It was stupid to give away Dale Steyn.

Good addition he is.But will certainly miss Dale Steyn a lot.
