5 Players which can turn the fate of RCB Team in IPL 2019

IPL hasn’t been the greatest of the Journeys for some of the IPL teams ever since the Tournament got established in 2008.Teams like RCB, Kings XI Punjab and Delhi daredevils have really found it hard to put their hand at the coveted trophy even while having some of the Biggest players in their teams . Amongst all of them, RCB has been the most Unluckiest teams since now and even though they possess the mighty powers of two of the greatest batsman of this era ( Kohli and AB), they still find themselves at the bottom of the table every year.

Still, there are is a lot to achieve in the IPL 2019 and the team management can certainly hope of a turnaround to their fate this season. While we said that, let’s have a look at 5 players which they must recruit in order to turn the tables for them in IPL 2019.

Travis Head( Australia)

Travis Head

Travis Head is one of the most prolific Australian Batsman playing currently in the International circuit and while being a solid Middle order player, he can roll his arms for some handy spin for his team whenever required. While most of the fans got shocked when he remained unsold last year, this player can really make a difference this year for RCB. Not only he can serve as a great option to the already struggling lower middle order of the RCB team, he can come handy as a alternative spin option for them whenever required.

Although he did play for them for RCB in the 2017 IPL but wasn’t been retained by the franchisee I the 2018 edition even after scori9ng an impressive 205 runs for the 10 matches he played for the team. Therefore, RCB have a big chance this time to make up to their mistake from the last year and surely add some more artillery in their armory.

James Faulkner (Australia)

James Faulkner

Although lot of people might argue the fact that James Faulkner is no more the player he used to be once, this All-rounder form Australia still packs a lot of punch with his all round skills. He might not be in best of the forms over the past few months which also made him lose his pace in the national team eventually; he can still feed in to the void which is there in the RCB team for an all-rounder. Moreover, his recent performance for his county team in the recently concluded NatWest T20 blast was quite i9mpressive and he seems like coming back in his old colors during the course.

We can certainly say that after looking at the fact that Colin de Grandhomme never fit in well for an All rounder’s role and on the other end, Moeen ali still dint get the complete confidence by his skipper and team management on him. Therefore, Faulkner can come as a great option in both the Bowling and lower order batting department for RCB this coming season.

Shaun Marsh (Australia)

Shaun Marsh

Shaun Marsh getting unsold in the 2018 IPL auction came as a shocker for most of the Cricket fans around India. A Player who has scored near to 2500 runs across all the nine seasons he has played certainly needs to be looked for by RCB in the year 2019. Moreover, the biggest problem that the Captain Kohli came through during the IPL 2018 was the batting order which was shuffled a number of times during the course of the tournament.

Although Kohli would have done that to accommodate team’s over dependence on him and Devilliers, but same didn’t bring any good for them in the process by any means. Therefore, we can say that Shaun marsh can be the player who posses all the skill set and talent required to bat at any position for his team, he can come as a great option for RCB to fill in the voids this time. Moreover, he is an equally efficient player for both pace and spin with same expertise and that comes as a added advantage for RCB.

Hashim Amla (South Africa)

Hashim Amla

Exclusion of Hashim Amla was also one of the biggest Surprises for the IPl auction in 2018 and even though this amazing player from South Africa amassed more than 400 runs in the IPL season in 2017, he was surprisingly not being included in the Punjab’ team in the year 2018.moreover, he also slammed two impressive centuries during the process and this is something which makes everyone stunned about Punjab’s decision to not to retain him.

Nevertheless, he will be there in the auction one more time in 2019 and RCB must go behind him to fill in that void at the Top order. Amla not only comes as a player who can stay solid at one end for the whole innings, he can still play those big shots with utmost ease. Moreover, he is a brilliant player for both the spin and pace and that is something which makes him an “Must to go for “player for the RCB team this coming season.

Qais Ahmad (Afghanistan)

Qais Ahmad

One of the main reasons why RCB hasn’t been able to make it big in all the previous IPL season is their futile bowling attack. Although Umesh Yadav did provide them as a great option after his inclusion in the team last year, the Spin department is still having too much burden on the Leggie Yuzvendra chahal.

That’s where the recent Afghanistan sensation Qais Ahmed comes as a great option for the RCB team and this leg spinner got the great ability to spin both ways with equal efficiency. Moreover, he has turned out to be one of the most standout players in the recently concluded Afghanistan Premier league where he scalped 4 wickets in the final match to take his team to the title for the Inaugural APL.

On the other hand, if we take look at the standout performers from the past IPL tournaments, there’s always a spinner who has turned the tables for his team. We all can memorize the great performances by KKR Spinner Sunil Naraine, SRH’s spinner Rashid khan, Punjab’s spinners Ashwin and Axar Patel along with Mumbai’s latest Spin sensation Mayank Markande in the last IPL tournament and Qais ahmed can certainly serve up in the same manner for RCB next season.
