Although he has not won any major ICC or IPL titles, he has been the inspiration for other cricketers around the world. His idea of playing fit players in the squad has produced good results in bilateral series, especially in the overseas tours. Coming to IPL, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are on a roll with 4 wins in 4 matches and are at the top of the points table.
