If there is one franchise in the franchise cricket who can consider themselves unlucky than any other team ,then it should be the Bangalore based team in Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team that has reached the final of the tournament for 3 years but still couldn’t go past the finishing line for some reason.
It has been a well known story that the Virat Kohli led team has been the batting powerhouse and their batting department has been never found wanted. It was always the bowling that let them down big time in every season. They bought Tymal Mills, Mitchell Starc, Chris Jordan who are all renowned T20 specialists but all even they couldn’t help to solve the trophy drought for RCB.
The experienced wicket keeper batsman in Parthiv Patel has been an integral part of the RCB franchise for more than 2 years now. He revealed in his latest interview with Boria Majumdar that he asked the Indian captain to go for Jasprit Bumrah who could plug in the death bowling concern that RCB has been facing with over the years
Here’s what Parthiv Patel had to say about Jasprit Bumrah
I remember his debut game against Vidarbha and I know I have spoken to John Wright, I have spoken to Rahul Sanghvi, Also, I had spoken to Virat before he was picked for Mumbai Indians. I was in RCB and I told Virat that this is the guy we should be picking him but obviously Mumbai Indians outwitted RCB and he went to Mumbai Indians. I had spoken to John Wright that this guy could be something special
RCB have roped in one of the shrewdest cricket brains going around as their director in Mike Hesson who managed to assemble a brilliant squad that might just solve the trophy drought for the RCB this time around.
His presence at the auction table was evident that they went after Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Dale Steyn, and Kane Richardson who are all brilliant death bowlers and might just solve RCB's never ending problem of leaking runs in the death overs.
