Sunil Gavaskar, the former Indian cricketer, has found as a consequence of his analysis that AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli should open for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020).
Gavaskar says both of the players have run-scoring history and can be exceptional adding on some runs to the top-order for their franchise. Despite Kohli’s aggressive behavior, he has not won the winner’s title yet for his men and will be looking for the maiden one this season.
Sunil Gavaskar reveals two players who shall open up for RCB
“On pitches that will get slower, it may be a good idea to have both the champion batsmen open the batting while the ball is hard and new and will come on to the bat nicely than when the spinners are operating. Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal could be a match-winner for RCB on those pitches,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.
“Why a team like Royal Challengers Bangalore hasn’t won the title as yet is a puzzle. Any team that has Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers should never be short of runs and maybe that’s also a problem, for when these two failed, as humans sometimes do, then the others haven’t put their hands up. They have a new coach and will be hoping that this will be their year,” he added.
The duo has the perfect chemistry and can be the major asset adding some essential runs to the top-order. In the upcoming extravaganza, the performance of the side will be partially dependent upon Kohli’s performance and De Villiers will be giving an upper hand to him. (added by TheSportsMag).
