Royal Challenger Bangalore is yet to win an IPL title. This season of IPL 2020 had shown them some rays of hope to get closer to the IPL title and quench RCB’s thirst. But the wait seems to continue for RCB and management. Dream 11 IPL 2020 for RCB started with a win and looked good till the first half of the tournament. RCB won 7 out of their first 10 matches. But as the tournament progressed to the second half, RCB lost all the 5 games they played.
Here are 5 reasons why RCB failed :
Dependence on Virat and AB de Villiers:
Royal Challenger Bangalore is a lot dependent on the performance of Virat and AB. They have choked most of the time when these two batsmen failed to score runs for the side. Virat Kohli was in the good form in the first half but got out early in the last few matches. The same is with AB de Villiers. They need to find a few strong and dependent middle over batsmen to overcome this flaw.
Not giving proper time to the players:
Virat Kohli is someone who believes a lot in the current form. He makes changes in the side very quickly. If a player is not performing to the mark, he will bench him and include other players.
Not finding the right playing 11:
RCB and management have failed to find the perfect playing 11 for the side. We have seen too many changes in the recent games of RCB. Finding the right 11 players for the game is very important and RCB has failed miserably in it. In the last match, Eliminator RCB made as many as four changes in the side, which is rare in a high-intensity match.
Slow Run Rate in middle overs:
Virat Kohli led RCB has the lowest Run Rate in the middle overs(6- 16 overs) in Dream11 IPL 2020. RCB scores with 6.80 runs per over in the middle, which is the lowest in this season of IPL by any team. Because of the slow run rate in middle overs, they have to play drastically fast in the death overs.
Losing too many wickets at death:
Because of the slow knocks in the middle overs, RCB faces a lot of pressure at death overs and they lose too many wickets at death.
RCB in death overs (16-20) last five matches:
Vs CSK: 44/4
Vs MI: 35/4
Vs SRH: 27/3
Vs DC: 49/5
Vs SRH: 38/3
