What are the 3 Reasons behind RCB’s failure in IPL 2023? IPL 2023

The Royal Challengers Bangalore team is eliminated from the current 16th season of the Indian Premier League after clashing with Gujarat Titans at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

It was the greatest form of heartbreak for Royal Challengers and their supporters because Titans had just completed the highest-scoring run chase in IPL history.

The visiting squad was able to claim victory despite having a difficult time immediately chasing down a 198-run mark in large part because of batsman Shubman Gill’s second IPL century. Gill became the fourth batsman to hit consecutive hundreds in the IPL, joining former RCB skipper Virat Kohli in the opening inning.

Let’s take a look  at the Scenarios,

What went Wrong for RCB in this IPL Season:

1. Over Dependency on Faf du Plessis and Kohli:

During this season, an all-star top order made up of du Plessis, Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell carried the  middle order that was protected by them and just waiting to be exposed.

Du Plessis led the run charts with 730 runs at a strike rate of 153.68 and 8 -50+ plus scores.

In the final two games for RCB, Kohli scored back-to-back hundreds, and he concluded with 639 runs at a strike rate of 139.82. Prior to that, he had scored six half-centuries.

Maxwell scored 400 runs with a strike rate of 183.48 thanks to his aggressive style of play. Out of the 2502 runs the team scored, these three individuals alone provided 1769. In 14 games, the other batters only contributed 733 runs.

2. No specialist finisher cost RCB crucial games:

Du Plessis claimed that the legendary RCB franchise was held back this time by hitters other than their popular trio of him, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell’s failure to perform admirably throughout the season.

Du Plessis claimed that RCB once more lacked the drive necessary in the middle and the end-overs phase despite speculation that they were probably 20 short despite scoring 197/5 against the hot Titans.

After three successive below-average seasons, Kohli, Du Plessis’ seasoned opening partner, finally found his form. Maxwell, a relentlessly aggressive and influential player, supported those two.

This was noted by Du Plessis in cricketing terms, indicating a need for quick development, and he felt that his squad lacked -two strong hitters at five or six or six and seven to make sure the team get that finisher for run a ball matches that went out of the way for them.

3. Poor show from bowlers except Siraj:

The RCB bowlers never disappoints to bring down the level of the T20 in the IPL Season, Mohammad Siraj only maintained the consistency of the bowling with the on going league and always gave a break through to the team. On the other hand no reliable bowlers could partner in him in the wicket taking haul. And Ended up being expensive or unfruitful. The franchise was dependent on the top order and the Single X Factor of the bowling unit Siraj to perform. Mohammed Siraj has been the standout pace bowler for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)  making significant contributions with the ball with 19 wickets in 14 matches, Siraj has been a vital asset to the team’s bowling attack.
