I believe that the RCB bats below average and their bowling consistently produces over-par runs: Rayudu Ambati

Rayudu remarked, “I feel like their batting performs below par and their bowling always gives over-par runs.”

In the 16-year history of the competition, Royal Challengers Bengaluru is one of the few teams that has never taken home an Indian Premier League trophy. When it comes to fandom and brand presence, they are among the most sought-after teams. But they haven’t found the silverware in years. They have returned for the 17th season of the Indian Premier League with the same fervor, but based on their performance thus far, it appears that fortune is not on their side.

Ambati Rayudu, a former player with the Chennai Super Kings, has shared insights on the team’s past mistakes. He emphasized that the team’s batting and bowling ratios need to be closely examined. For RCB, it has been that way around; their bowlers are unable to stop even the most vulnerable targets, and their hitters are dependent on a few key individuals to perform consistently. Sometimes their batting mainstays give way under duress.

They consistently bowl over-par and bat below-par, in my opinion. RCB never has a famous batter on the field when they are under duress. These teams are never successful. They haven’t won the IPL in a long time because of this. The big-name players go at the top and depart after eating the cake over the cream, while all the younger players continue to play down the order. According to News18, Rayudu stated, “If you see, who were the batters batting under pressure? Your young Indian batters and Dinesh Karthik.”

One obvious issue that emerged from RCB’s behavior during their opening IPL 2024 games was their over-reliance on Virat Kohli. As of right now, Kohli leads the team in runs scored; no other batsman has contributed significantly to the total. The fact that the youth don’t rise to the occasion just puts more pressure on the former captain of the RCB to perform consistently.

sixteen years. This is the same tale with RCB; no great name is ever found standing when there is pressure. This club has never won an IPL, Rayudu continued, “because all the young guys are playing at the back end and all the big guns bat at the top of the order and they whip off the cream from the cake.”
