Michael Vaughan praised RCB’s every purchase, but specially mentioned Aaron Finch

Michael Vaughan is excited how the pace bowling line-up has sorted out. He believes that the joining of Dale Steyn and Kane Richardson will make the pace bowling side stronger, while Chris Morris and Isuru Udana are the good pace-bowling all-rounders. He also praised for choosing the Australian wicketkeeper Joshua Philippe who can bat at the top of the order.

However, Vaughan is most excited to see Aaron Finch in the RCB squad. The former English captain believes that the RCB had a lack of leadership and guidance in recent years. Though he praised Virat Kohli’s batting and leadership quality, Vaughan believes that Aaron Finch can guide Kohli in the tactical purpose as the Australian is one of the best T20 captains.
