Former South Africa cricketer Lance Klusener revealed that he would like RCB to win the IPL 2021 and wanted them to end the jinx that has been going for a long time. Klusener was one of the best all-rounders to have played the game, and he played 49 Tests and 171 ODIs for the Proteas side.
RCB this year has already progressed to the playoffs of IPL 2021 and is likely to end up in the third position. They will have to play the eliminator and win the contest, and their roadmap into the finals won’t be easy at all. RCB also has the best playing XI combination this year, with a lot of options in the dugout.
Lance Klusener Hopes Of RCB Clinching Their Maiden Title
Lance Klusener mentioned that he would love to see the RCB side winning their maiden IPL title and wondered how they hadn’t won an IPL title despite having the most prominent names of Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. He also added that his gut feeling says RCB will win their maiden IPL title this year.
“I would like RCB to win their first title. Honestly, I really would love to see them lifting the title. I always find it mind-boggling how Virat, AB, and the same team have never been able to get over the line. I always find that difficult to understand. My feeling is that this will be the year that RCB will finally be able to lift the title,” Lance Klusener advised TimesofIndia.com in a unique interview.
RCB Needs To Send AB De Villiers Up The Order
RCB has been sending AB De Villiers very low in the batting order at number five or six, which cuts down the number of deliveries he will be facing. He is one of the top batters in the world despite his retirement, and he can change a game very quickly. Glenn Maxwell, Virat Kohli, and AB De Villiers are three of the top players for RCB, and they will need to come up with the order.
RCB is scheduled to play against Delhi Capitals in their next game, and they will be looking to go into the playoffs with a win.
