									Royal Challengers Banglore needs Variation

       Just a few days ago Royal Challengers Banglore was at no. 2
position, now they have been pushed back to no.4. If they loose next
game it will be tough task to qualify for the semi finals. Currently
they are ahead of Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders
because of their net run rate. All 3 teams have won 5 from 10. Royal
Challengers Banglore registered 4 wins in the first 5 games than 1
victory in the next 5. Some games have been closed which could
have gone Royal Challengers Banglore way. They are using the same
team which might be the problem.

       Eoin Morgan the left hand bastman played few games before
the arrival of Kevin Pietersen and Cameron White. Morgan is the only
left hand batsman used by Royal Challengers Banglore in IPL 3. In all
the matches where Eoin Morgan has not played they have 11 Right
hand batsmen which allow more control for the bowling team. The
combination of right – left makes it easier for the batsman to rotate
strike. For example Delhi Daredavils openers are David Warner and
Virender Sehwag so is Matthew Hayden and Murali Vijay for Chennai
Super Kings. The combination makes it difficult for the opposition to
set fields and can make the difference of few runs in the innings. Anil
Kumble has hardly changed the bowling attack so far.

       A Mithun, K Apanna and R Van der Merwe have played one
game each. Mithun bowled well and even removed Virender Sehwag.
He can replace Steyn which would allow 1 more foreign player. Van
der Merwe can take that place of Steyn; he is also a useful batsman,
last year he bowled well and bat at no.3. Manish Pandey is failing
consistently; maybe the bowlers have worked him out. The team
should give opportunity to all rounders like B Akhil and B Kumar.
Some changes are necessary to catch the opposition by surprise.
