Bangalore has been recognized as one of the strongest yet one of the most unsuccessful teams of Indian T20 League. Decked up with brilliant players like Virat Kohli, Ab de Villiers Aaron Finch, etc., the team has never won an Indian T20 League trophy. They managed to get through to the semi-final thrice but weren’t able to win at any of the occasions. The franchise authorities joined the recent auction with full-action and made some major picks at the event. With the addition of new and young talent, the team looks rock-hard and all set to bag their maiden title at the 13th edition of the tournament.
However, there are still certain factors that are needed to be kept in mind while walking down to the field in order to emerge victories. Here’s a list of things Bangalore should consider to bag the trophy at the finale.
Focus on Team Combination
Picking the right team combinations has always been a big issue for the team. Over the years it has been quite evident that the middle-order of the team isn’t pitched enough and the collapse leads to the defeat of the team. Thus, in the upcoming matches, the team should try experimenting with its team combination and walk down the field with a much-equipped middle-order. This can be their first step towards victory.
Stop Relying only on Potential Player
One of the major things that the team needs to work upon is to stop relying entirely on potential players. Ab de Villiers and Virat Kohli are considered as the finest batsmen of the team, and thus, the entire burden of winning a match is on their shoulders. They often fail to perform, succumbing to the pressure of winning.
Work on Death Bowling
Last on the list but definitely not the least is the death bowling action of the team. Dale Steyn, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, and Kane Richardson are some of the big names that the team has in the bowling department. However, picking the most crucial player for the death overs has been a challenge for the team which has always turned the game upside-down. They should analyze the potential of the players, and pick their men for the most crucial overs of a game carefully.
