Bangalore Squad Analysis: Indian T20 League 2022 

By Vivek Krishnan

Regardless of what the history or squad formation indicates, the ardent Bangalore fans continue to expect larger-than-life performances from their beloved franchise.

Although Bangalore have made two finals in 14 years, they are still on the hunt for their maiden Indian T20 League title. Last year, they managed to qualify for the playoffs, only to get knocked out by Kolkata in the eliminator.

Over the years, lack of potency and depth in bowling has been a perennial issue for Bangalore. However, they managed to fill the hole at the recently concluded auction.

Game Changers
Much of Bangalore’s success in 2021 should be attributed to Glenn Maxwell’s attacking batting. The Australian scored 518 runs at 42.75, including six fifties.It will be interesting to see if he can keep the momentum going, post his much-hyped retention.

Virat Kohli stepping down from captaincy can turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Bangalore. With no added pressure, the former skipper will have the license to express himself at the top of the order.

These two marquee names will also make a difference in fantasy leagues, especially as a captain or vice-captain.

Key Contributors
With 32 wickets in 15 matches, Harshal Patel was the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. With his retention, Bangalore seem to have found a permanent solution to their death overs problem. Fantasy players too will benefit from Patel’s deception.

Meanwhile, Mohammad Siraj too has grown into a matured bowler. Bangalore will rely on him for early breakthroughs. He also added useful fantasy points with an economy of under seven in the previous edition.

Newcomers
Chennai’s loss is Bangalore’s gain. There are few better openers in the Indian T20 League with a better record than Faf du Plessis. The South African legend will be responsible for providing a steady start at the top. In addition to his stellar batting, du Plessis is also known for his outstanding ground fielding and catching.

After Chahal’s exit, Wanindu Hasaranga will be the leader of the spin attack. The Sri Lankan leggie has been bamboozling batters in international cricket lately. He is also pretty useful down the order. That said, if he gets injured, Bangalore might struggle to find a quality replacement.

With the inclusion of Anuj Rawat, Mahipal Lomror, and Suyash Prabhudessai, Bangalore are pinning hopes on the young brigade to keep the scorecard ticking in the middle-order.

Strengths
After learning the hard way, Bangalore have finally put together a formidable seam attack, coupled with quality Indian and overseas professionals. From the new-ball bowlers to death specialists, Bangalore appear to have the required ammunition to strike at regular intervals.

Although they lost out on retaining Devdutt Padikkal, Bangalore’s top-order will be enriched with the arrival of the experienced Faf du Plessis.

Weaknesses
Wonder what the logic was behind not retaining Yuzvendra Chahal who remains the highest wicket-taker for the franchise. Having lost out on a frontline Indian spinner in the playing 11, Bangalore will be forced to depend heavily on their new recruit Wanindu Hasaranga to take the field in almost every game. While the Sri Lankan leggie has the credentials to produce the desired results, the spin department otherwise looks thin. Punting on a novice is often fraught with danger.

With AB de Villiers’ retirement and Maxwell’s promotion up the order, Bangaloreare running short on finishers.

Final Word
At least Bangalore have addressed their bowling issues, which often prevented them from achieving the desired results.If they can field a spinner who can complement Hasaranga, the two-time finalists might end up as the best bowling side of the tournament.

Historically, Bangalore have also been slow starters. A quick rectification on that front will put them in a better position to qualify for the playoffs, and perhaps even go all the way.
