So what’s going wrong the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp?
They a have talent of superstars, brand name, former cricketer as coach and overall, Indian cricket’s poster as their skipper. With all these aspects, RCB have failed to materialise as a winning team. Their recent losses have slip-upped in the IPL table and also many of their talented batsmen have yet to conjure up big scores. Virat Kohli and company might not know what those reasons are but we do as we list them down. Check them out:
Anushka Sharma’s absence
If MS Dhoni’s spouse Sakshi Dhoni is there at the stadium to cheer the former up, well why isn’t Anushka there for Virat? May be that’s the reason why, the RCB skipper is low on morale and could not muster up the runs for his side. Anushka didn’t you say, “Ek ladki sirf itna hi chahti hai … ki koi usse itna pyar kare … jitna kisi ne kisi se na kiya ho” in the movie ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’?
Virat’s lost aggression
Since his inclusion in the Indian team, Virat Kohli is known to be an aggressor on the pitch. Ex-cricketers and pundits likened him as the ‘new age’ Sachin Tendulkar of Indian cricket. At times, when the bat stopped; his mouth did the talking as well! But this year, the Delhi-born looks glum on the pitch. Out of sorts and seems to have lacked aggression that made him a cult amongst the Indian fans.
Curse of the Kingfisher employers
One reason behind Royal Challengers Bangalore downfall could be that ‘curse’ from the sacked Kingfisher employees. Everybody knows how the RCB owner Vijay Mallya failed to pay the salaries for over 2000 KCA employees that was due for 18 months. Well, Mr. Mallya, do you believe in black magic?
AB de Villiers’ hair-fall
The South African superstar AB de Villiers was seen sporting a ‘trimmed’ haircut in a recent match against the Rajasthan Royals. Could RCB have won their previous games had de Villiers grown more hair? May be yes or not?
Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh have become old
Even though they are huge names in international T20 cricket, Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh, have to admit, grown old. The blokes are either injured or slow to react on field. It’s time RCB starts breeding young talent and get the old armour out. Saw what happened to Manchester United fellas?
Royal Challengers Bangalore is a power-packed side but until and unless they ‘change’ their mindset and playing styles, the Red brigade might go yet another trophy-less season. Virat Kohli, get your acts together and start performing on the field!
