Following their second defeat, Harbhajan Singh harshly criticizes the RCB bowling attack, saying, “They don’t have good bowlers in the IPL 2024.”

Asks Harbhajan Singh, “What did they do with Yuzvendra Chahal?”

In the current Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Royal Challengers Bengaluru suffered a defeat in their second match. Their most recent matchup was with the Kolkata Knight Riders, led by Shreyas Iyer. On Friday, March 29, both teams were in the spotlight at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

But KKR outperformed RCB; the two-time champions won the match after needing just 16.5 overs to chase a goal of 183 runs. The RCB bowlers had a day to remember, to put it plainly.

In three and four overs, respectively, Mohammed Siraj and Yash Dayal were struck for 46 runs; in two overs, Alzarri Joseph gave up 34 runs, and in 2.5 overs, Mayank Dagar gave up 23 runs.

Harbhajan Singh, the former Indian cricket player, was not pleased with the team’s bowling performance. According to the former spinner, RCB’s bowling lineup for the 2024 Indian Premier League is weak. It’s interesting that he also discussed the bowlers they let go.

“Where are those who bowl? Their bowling lineup for the IPL 2024 is weak. Bowling is something I’m concerned about. Yuzvendra Chahal: what happened to him? Despite being their top bowler, he was let go. “He is among the game’s legends,” Harbhajan Singh stated to Star Sports.

Wanindu Hasaranga was another one of them, but he was also set free. Big players cannot be released in order to win a match. I couldn’t think of any bowlers that can win games for the squad, with the exception of Mohammed Siraj. Siraj is having trouble with his form too. Karn Sharma was rested from the match against KKR, the speaker continued.

They don’t support athletes: Singh Harbhajan

Harbhajan Singh also brought up the issue of Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s lack of support for its players over time. Harbhajan mentioned Shivam Dube as an example, pointing out his outstanding performance for the Chennai Super Kings.

“They don’t support athletes. Shivam Dube, who is now winning games for Chennai Super Kings, was not at his best for RCB. He was the standout performer for CSK during their 2023 championship season. Shivam did not fare well when he played for the RCB. Players do receive support at CSK, but things aren’t the same at RCB. Dube will not succeed if he bats at the No. 5 or No. 6 position.
