Royal Challengers Bengaluru harbhajan singh

Harbhajan Singh expressed concern regarding RCB’s bowling woes, which might have dragged down the team.

The Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) finally registered their second win of the IPL 2024 season after a six-match losing streak, defeating SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their last outing. While the victory brought some relief to the team, it exposed underlying issues that continue to plague RCB’s bowling attack.

Despite a collective effort from both batters and bowlers in the win against SRH, RCB’s bowling has been a major concern throughout the season. The team has consistently leaked runs in the crucial powerplay overs, failing to restrict the opposition early on.

Legendary Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh therefore, expressed his concern for RCB’s struggles, emphasising the need for a balanced team. He pointed out that relying solely on batters to win matches is not a sustainable strategy.

“Bilkul! Auction me baithe hain jo log, mujhe ye samajh nahi aata aap log jab auction karne jate ho, aap dekhte ho ki aap logon ko ek balanced team chahye. Aapko heavy ballebaazi hamesha match nahi jitati. Aap jab tak aachhe gendbaz nahi pick karange, tab tak aap jitange nahi.” (Definitely. The people who sit there at the auction have to ensure they have a balanced team. Batting a heavy side will not always win your matches. (Until the time you do not pick good bowlers, you are not going to win titles.) Harbhajan said on Star Sports.

The former cricketer also advocated for including an Indian member in the RCB support staff. He believes this addition would be beneficial in guiding young Indian players, especially bowlers.

“RCB ke lihaaz se, unko management me ek Indian rakhna zaruri hai din pore maidanon ko, Indian youngsters ko samjhe. Jaa ke unke matches (domestic) dekhe aur unko select kare team me. Aur gendbazi aachhi select karni zaruri hai. Batting unki hamesha tagdi rahi hai, but kahin-na-kahin wo maar khate hain to gendbazi me.” (From RCB management’s perspective, they should have an Indian in the management who understands Indian youngsters. He should go and see their performances (Indian talents) in domestic cricket and make sure they are picked. It is very crucial to have a good bowling attack. They have always had an outstanding batting line-up, but it is their bowling that has let them down), said Singh.

Though RCB has managed to pull off their latest win, they are still at the bottom of the IPL points table, having won only two out of nine matches. They might not have the best chance to make it to the playoffs, but they will try to uplift their team spirit in their next outing against GT on April 28th.
