Former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly believes the inclusion of Chris Jordon has really helped Royal Challengers Bangalore in creating the right balance. Their bowling have improved but Ganguly also credited team’s overall change of fortunes and phenomenal form Virat Kohli.
”It was surprising to see such a team losing matches because their bowling was not standing up to the challenge, but the inclusion of Chris Jordon has really helped them in creating the right balance and as a result they are faring better in the business end of the tournament now,” said Sourav.
Stating that chasing 180 in a must-win game wasn’t an easy effort and a loss would have been curtains for RCB’s campaign but the way Kohli played, it seemed like he was never in any sort of discomfort. One of India’s most successful captains, Sourav Ganguly, went ahead and even praised the Delhi-lad for his knock against Kings XI Punjab within 48 hours, in the very next match. He said,” Virat looks to be in the form of his life, but what stands out for me is his desire to win. And this is so infectious that the entire team seems to be falling in line behind the leader.”
There are six teams competing for a place in the playoffs. According to Sourav, “There is still no absolute clarity about who will feature in the final four. RCB, Gujarat Lions, Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils and the Knight Riders are all breathing down each other’s neck for those playoff slots. It is going to be a test of character and whoever holds their nerve will race past the other.”
