CSK Vs RCB: Imran Tahir, who belongs to a South Africa and have expertise in leg-spinning, has blamed the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) IPL 2022 failures on the incompetence of team in striking superstars. If Virat Kohli, skipper Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell continue to perform poorly, the 43-year-old believes the organization would struggle.
Virat Kohli, the former leader, has a batting average rate of 116.25 and has amassed 186 runs in ten matches at an economy rate of 20.67. The current leader, Du Plessis, has majestic half-centuries but has yet to fulfil a big role in some of the upcoming qualifying matches. Although a strike rate of 178.41, Maxwell, an Australian batting all-rounder, had only one fifty in seven games.
Imran Tahir’s Statement:
If Royal Challengers Bangalore are to win the game, Imran Tahir shared his opinion over an official platform that the three big guns must strike with the bat. He went on to express that it appears very clear that if three key players (Kohli, Faf, and Maxwell) aren’t dominating, the team will be on the back foot. In his opinion, players should spend more time on the field to be effective and achieve better outcomes. If the three falter again, Dinesh Karthik, who has done an outstanding job with the bats in the bottom order, will shoulder a large share of the blame.
Imran Tahir is rooting for Harshal Patel to succeed:
The failure of Harshal Patel, the previous season’s Purple Cap champion, to live up to the promise has hurt Bangalore’s bowling. Imran Tahir, on the other hand, believes the 31-year-old has the talent and experience to succeed. Harshal Patel is a great bowler with a successful track record, he remarked of RCB’s bowling squad. Everyone goes through all of these stages when things aren’t going well. However, he can reclaim his progression at any time. He’s been in that situation before.
