Dubai: Sunil Gavaskar has been quite astonished by the fact that RCB has not won any IPL crown as of now even though having one of the best players in the world in its team, players like Virat Kohli, Ab De Villiers, Dale Stein, Chris Morris, Umesh Yadav, and the chosen one Yuzvendra Chahal.
Last year RCB performance was not at all up to the mark as they finished at the bottom of the IPL points table. It will be interesting to see what new techniques RCB players will implement to not only win the game but also win the trophy for the first time and write their name in the history of IPL.
Players like Chris Morris and Arron flinch are selected to be in the team for the better performance and to boost the team power to wear the crown.
In his column for Sportstar, he expressed how strange it is for RCB not winning any titles despite having a strong team.
“Why a team like Royal Challengers Bangalore hasn’t won the title as yet is a puzzle. Any team that has Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers should never be short of runs and maybe that’s also a problem, for when these two failed, as humans sometimes do, then the others haven’t put their hands up. They have a new coach and will be hoping that this will be their year,” he wrote.
He even explained why he chose Yuzvendra Chahal as the match-winner for RCB this year.
“On pitches that will get slower, it may be a good idea to have both the champion batsmen open the batting while the ball is hard and new and will come on to the bat nicely than when the spinners are operating. Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal could be a match-winner for RCB on those pitches.''
