Former Indian player Aakash Chopra has predicted bad season for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. According to him, the Faf du Plessis-led team might not make it to the playoffs of IPL 2022.
While Chopra reckoned that Bangalore could prove him wrong by reaching the knockout stage, he wouldn’t be surprised if they fail to do so.
“I feel RCB may not qualify this year but they can prove me wrong.” He pointed out that RCB lack firepower in the lower-middle order. He also suggested that instead of spending Rs 10.75 crore on Wanindu Hasaranga, they could have invested the money on Yuzvendra Chahal or Rahul Chahar.
“RCB have Faf du Plessis at the top with DK and Mahipal Lomror down the order. Instead of spending a lot of money on Hasaranga, they could have gone for Yuzvendra Chahal or Rahul Chahar. The lower middle-order woes that were there before are still there.”
