RCB fans call to action!
The recent Pepsi IPL player auction produced some exciting results. We now have a solid foundation for the roll out of our 2013 playing affairs strategy. We used the Pepsi IPL 2013 auction as an opportunity to strengthen our bowling line-up and add capable all-rounders to increase the amount of flexibility in the selection of the playing squad.
We welcome the following new players to our squad for 2013: RP Singh, Pankaj Singh, Moises Henriques (Australia), Christopher Barnwell (West Indies), Ravi Rampaul (West Indies), Dan Christian (Australia), Jaidev Unadkat and Sheldon Jackson.
More great news! Congratulations to Virat Kohli on taking over the reins as RCB captain for 2013. Virat succeeds the highly respected and successful former RCB captain - Daniel Vettori.
We listened to our fans on the issue of ticket pricing. I am sure you’ll be pleased with our ticket offers for 2013, soon to be released. Our new all year round lifestyle merchandise range for 2013 will also be out very soon and will reveal a wide range of items suited to women, children, the stadium, office and home to mention a few categories.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the recent auction mania contest. Congratulations to Varun Reddy from Bellary and Samarth Pai from Bangalore. They will each receive a team-autographed miniature bat. Well done Varun and Samarth!
Chris Gayle was at his explosive best earlier this month scoring 114 off 51 balls (5 fours and 12 sixes) to help his team (Dhaka) into the BPL final. Amazingly, his first 29 runs came off 27 balls and the next 36 balls were to all corners of the field. Karun Nair was also at his best earlier this month by being the top scorer (371 runs from 5 matches) in the South Zone Inter State u22 tournament. His performance included 2 fifties and 2 hundreds at an average of 92.75. Karun also took 6 wickets at an average of 20.33 and held 4 catches in the tournament. Awesome performances!
