2 changes that RCB should make in their batting order to bring out the best in Cameron Green

Can Cameron Green still go all guns blazing: This season has been a nightmare for the Royal Challengers Bengaluru and truth be told, they are almost out of the IPL 2024. With just one win so far, this has been a disaster for RCB. But did they actually have a team who were running so low on gas? There are several answers to that.

From the bowling front, they actually wanted to build a team centered around Mohammed Siraj. With Reece Topley and Lockie Ferguson in the mix, they thought that they had their bowling department covered. However, without a quality spinner, they were miles from being a complete side. But then with all of that being said, two bigger names that they were hoping to fire in IPL 2024 was that of Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green.

Sadly, both have flopped so far and the hopes are at an all time low. But can the fortunes be changed? Maybe yes. However, for that to happen, there are a couple of things that will have to happen. We are all aware of how menacing Green can be and can almost single-handedly change the game if his strategy goes along. Here are two changes that RCB can make to their batting order to eke out the most from Cam Green.


#1 Drop Virat Kohli to number three and ask Cameron Green to open

Green’s biggest strength is batting as an opener. Mumbai Indians may have used him as a middle-order batter but a man who loves to eye the fences, Green is always a fierce batter in the Powerplay. With the field restrictions on, Green can get in those early 70-80 runs in the first six overs but most importantly that will be bringing him in motion and what can follow suit is absolute madness.

#2 If not the opening slot give him number three and ask him to take his time

When you are a hard-hitter, you will have to understand that big shots always won’t be your go-to option. You will have to work the angles, find spaces and most importantly adapt. Green needs time to get his eyes in and for that to happen he will have to arrive to the center at least at number three if not for opening. He needs to be told that he will necessarily not have to go big from the word go because his partner is doing so. He can just be himself, wait around and then bring out the big guns. That provides him the time to get himself in and fire on all cylinders.
