Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra feels that the Royal Challengers Bangalore are yet to find their perfect playing XI and will keep making changes to their team combinations.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to defend 156 and lost by six wickets against the Chennai Super Kings in Sharjah. This is their second consecutive defeat in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League 2021. They are third on the points table with 10 points, having won five of their nine matches.

While analyzing the RCB vs CSK match on his Youtube Channel, Aakash Chopra said:

“Bangalore made changes, to be honest, they don’t have any option but to keep making changes, the sort of team they are playing. I am also wondering if AB de Villiers is fully fit because if he keeps, they can run the game a different way.”

Aakash Chopra further pointed out that RCB even dropped Kyle Jamieson, in the search of the perfect playing XI. He said,

“Sachin Baby was dropped and Kyle Jamieson, who was paid 16 crores, was also left out. Two spinners are still playing and Tim David was given a chance. Navdeep Saini was also given an opportunity, in place of Sachin Baby, because you needed pace but Bharat is still playing.”

Aakash Chopra highlighted that the Royal Challengers Bangalore got off to a good start, but their batters lost the way in the middle-orders. The openers, Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli added 111 runs to the first wicket. However, after Kohli’s wicket, RCB could only manage 45 runs in the next 6.4 overs and lost five more wickets. Aakash Chopra said,

“The Bangalore guys came and hit quite a bit. 13 runs off the first over and after that, the hitting continued. They scored 90 runs off the first 10 overs. But after that, you gradually started slowing down.”

“You lost your first wicket at 111, in the form of Virat Kohli but after that, the wagon went on getting slower. In the last four overs, they might have scored just 25 runs and four or five players got out. They just couldn’t take the game forward,” Chopra concluded.
