Death-over batting can haunt RCB: Aakash Chopra.

Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL

As the IPL is around the corner, commentator Aakash Chopra did a swot-analysis of the Royal Challengers Bangalore. He said there are clearly some weaknesses visible in the RCB squad. He gave justification to it by saying; that when a team don’t do good in big auction; then you are lagging.

He said that one of the biggest weakness in Royal Challengers Bangalore is their batting in death overs.

“One of their problems has been their death over batting. If AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli play till the end it is well and good, but if not then who is capable? It can be a matter of concern although it is better than earlier because they have Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar and Chris Morris. Although it is better than previous seasons,” Aakash said.

“Although none of them are world beaters; but RCB should play Moeen Ali down the order alongside Chris Morris; with Shivam Dube batting above them; they could get the job done.”

Another glaring weakness identified by Aakash in the RCB’s team is their ‘death bowling.’

“Death bowling is a big problem for RCB. Chris Morris is not a gun death bowler, even if you play Dale Steyn, he is also not a gun death bowler; nor are Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav or Mohammad Siraj. These bowlers don’t really give confidence in death bowling.”

He citied the examples of Jasprit, Rabada as gun-death bowlers.

Aakash continued by saying that RCB’s biggest threat is their ‘liitle impatience.’

“That has been marginally of a concern and they become a little impatient. I would verbally express pick your four overseas and stick with them for a little while. Same is the case with their Indian players,” Chopra further verbally expressed.

Aakash said RCB’s strengths are as usual ‘Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. He then added “the inclusion of Aaron Finch will help them.”
