Our XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore
Now considering the fact that RCB are gonna play majority of their games at Chinnaswamy, the track that aids spinners, we've started with a slightly spin friendly squad.
Now this RCB squad looks excellent on paper. They traded Mandeep Singh for Stoinis which is a big boost for them. Stoinis is in the best of form, after having a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious BBL. He was devastating when he came to open.
Parthiv, VK, ABD, Hetmyer all are excellent batsmen. This batting line-up looks explosive. Sundar and Dube, the young guns for RCB are worthy all rounders.Coulter-Nile, Chahal and Yadav have been playing the IPL for a long time. They know the conditions well and can adjust their game accordingly. Lastly it's PR Barman, the 16 year old leggie. No one has seen much of him so he's going to remain a mystery.
Eventually RCB plays with 7 bowling options and they bat till number 8, so on paper this looks a well balanced squad.
They have Tim Southee who can rotate with Coulter-Nile. A powerful hitter in Colin de Grandhomme sits out, he can probably replace Hetmyer. If he comes he provides another bowling option.
So RCB does have backups ready too. But the unanswered question still remains, can RCB get their hands on the silverware? If they click together as a unit this time, they probably can.
