RCB is in trouble, having lost two games in a row. They will next face Delhi Capitals, who themselves are struggling. It is high time that RCB gets closer to its most balanced XI. So far, the players have not stepped up, especially in the bowling department. On that note, here, we take a look at two changes RCB might do for their next game against Delhi Capitals.
1) Wanindu Hasaranga for David Willey
Wanindu Hasaranga has joined RCB and it is a no-brainer that he will walk straight into the XI. Karn Sharma has done well in his absence but RCB needs more from the spin department. Hasaranga will add further insurance with the bat, which will help the balance of the squad.
Meanwhile, RCB will have to single out which foreigner they will have to drop. Considering Wayne Parnell has the ability to bowl at other stages of an inning, too, he could be preferred ahead of Willey. That said, this debate will get settled when Josh Hazlewood is available for the franchise.
2) Avinash Singh for Karn Sharma
Suyash Prabhudessai for Anuj Rawat is one of the changes RCB might make for their next game against Delhi Capitals. RCB is missing something in the bowling department. Barring Mohammed Siraj, no other Indian bowler is stepping up. RCB might not need two leg-spinners and hence, they could drop Karn Sharma for someone new and exciting.
Avinash Singh Manhas is a promising youngster and as per reports, he can bowl consistently in high 140s. Yes, his control over the pacer is not known but this is probably the best time for RCB to try him out. Moreover, if Avinash can display an ability to hit the deck hard, RCB will benefit because they do not have such a bowler in their ranks right now. This way, the team can counter various opposition batters, who have all taken a ride against them.
