Despite the presence of many top players of international cricket, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team, captained by Virat Kohli, who have been deprived of the title so far, have the necessary balance by joining some new players to become champions in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). Would like to end the long wait. The Virat Kohli-led team also has legendary batsmen like AB de Villiers, but the team relied excessively on these two and the team never managed to balance. Now, with the addition of players like Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson, the team looks in a position to strike the necessary balance. Let us know how powerful the IPL 2021 Virat team is which can make it a winner, as well as know what weaknesses are there in the team.
Batting as strong as ever
RCB had started well in the UAE last time but eventually got upset and were eliminated in the Eliminator after losing five consecutive matches. This time the team management has focused on strengthening their batting and bowling by releasing 10 players before the auction. RCB’s batting looks very strong. Run Machine Kohli has a great record in IPL. Kohli has already made it clear that he will start the innings. He will be accompanied by Devadatta Paddikkal at the other end who performed brilliantly last season and is still in excellent form. Top-order young wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Azharuddin and New Zealand’s Fin Allen are capable of scoring fast runs while experienced players like de Villiers and Maxwell will handle the middle order. Sachin Baby, Daniel Christian and Washington Sundar strengthen their batting.
The fast bowling department is the weak side of RCB team
Despite New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson joining the team, RCB’s fast bowler department seems weak. Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj have little experience of bowling with white balls and often score runs. Jamieson has also struggled in T20s and does not have experience of playing in India. Harshal Patel and Australian trio Christian, Daniel Symes and Kane Richardson are the other options in the fast bowling department. Talking about the spin department, he has to play most of his matches for Chennai and Ahmedabad spinners on a helpful wicket, and in this case, Yuzvendra Chahal, who has always been successful in the IPL, can prove to be a trump card for him.
