Ambati Rayudu slams RCB’s international players after poor show

Ambati Rayudu slams RCB’s international players after poor show. The Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) have come under fire once more after losing by 28 runs to the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on Tuesday.

The Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) have faced criticism once more after a disappointing performance in a 28-run loss to the Lucknow Super Giants on April 2. Former Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu slamsRCB’s failure, citing poor bowling and the inability of the star batters to deliver under pressure as the primary reasons for their defeat.

After being ask to bat first, LSG opener Quinton de Kock’s brilliant 81 off 56. Vice-captain Nicholas Pooran’s quickfire 40* off 21 helped the visitors post a challenging total of 181/5. RCB’s run chase never really got started, as they lost wickets at regular intervals and were eventually bundle out for 153 in 19.4 overs.

I feel their bowling always gives over-par runs: Ambati Rayudu 

According to Rayudu, RCB’s bowling resources often give away too many runs. “I believe their bowling is consistently above average and their batting is below average. When RCB is under pressure, no well-known batter is seen on the field. These teams never win. This is why they haven’t won the IPL in so many years,” Rayudu told Star Sports.

Aside from a 40-run opening stand between Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis, RCB’s batting line-up crumbled under the pressure of LSG’s disciplined bowling attack, led by Mayank Yadav’s 3/14. Rayudu highlighted how the responsibility eventually fell on younger Indian batters such as Rajat Patidar and Mahipal Lomror, who scored 29 and 33 runs, respectively, while Dinesh Karthik struggled.

While RCB has assembled squads stacked with superstars over the years, their inability to find a balanced playing XI and contributions from the big names when it counts the most has repeatedly hampered their IPL campaign.

“Where were your top international players, who need to take the pressure? Everyone was in the dressing room. This is not happening now. “This has been this team’s story for the past 16 years,” he said.

Following last night’s defeat, the Bengaluru-based franchise is rank ninth in the points table. RCB will now fly to Jaipur for their next match, hoping for a change in fortunes as the tournament progresses.
