Virat Kohli must be wondering what his team needs to do to finally find a winning formula. Heading into this year’s IPL, RCB were quite confident that they had finally picked a squad with sufficient bowling depth and quality.
The likes of Yadav, Southee, Woakes, Chahal, Sundar and Ali were expected to give RCB the one of the best bowling attacks in the IPL, which is why Kohli was so confident that they would do well this season.
That has not happened though, as RCB have faced their familiar problems this year as well, as the bowlers have let down the team on multiple occasions.
With just two wins so far, Kohli knows that his team needs to pick up points and fast, starting from tonight’s match against KKR.
Dinesh Karthik’s KKR have had a mixed bag so far, as a few convincing displays have been interlinked with a couple of poor performances.
The injury to Starc and the poor form of Lynn has been a big problem for KKR, as their over reliance on Narine and Russell is there for everyone to see. KKR have had promising performances in Nitish Rana and Shivam Mavi though, and will hope to see them perform consistently this season.
With mostly clear skies expected today, both sides will be expected to perform well and will hope to pick up the points tonight.
For RCB’s sake, their bowler better pick up their socks and play well in tonight’s crucial match against KKR. Can’t expect Kohli and AB to perform miracles in every match right?!
