Rajasthan Royals (RR) have had a mixed bag so far in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as they have won only a solitary game out of 2 matches. They are all set to lock horns against the upbeat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their own den where the raucous crowd make life difficult for the visiting team. Krishnappa Gowtham is not worried about all those things as he has revealed that they have a plan in place for each one of their opponent players which they are hoping to execute during the course of the game.
Gowtham was one of the star buys in the mega-auction this year and has played both the matches so far of for the team. While he couldn’t do much in the opening encounter, it was him who opened the bowling to defend 71 in 6 overs against Delhi Daredevils in the rain-marred game back home. He is tipped as one of the best all-rounders going around in the domestic cricket and a good season will surely reap rich rewards for him.
We hope that the plans work
Krishnappa Gowtham, while speaking to the reporters on the eve of the match, cleared that the wicket looks extremely good and they’ve prepared themselves by watching the previous game at the venue. “We did get to watch yesterday’s game. We wanted to know what the wicket was doing. When bowlers were bowing it had initial grip, so it is an added advantage. The way the RCB batted there are a lot of things we can look at. The way they tackled the spin was very good,” he said.
However, he was optimistic about the plans they had for the home team and was upbeat that if they work on the day, RCB could be beaten on their home ground. “We have different plans for different players and hope they all come out good,” he added. Gowtham was all praise of Shane Warne whose positive influence has done wonders for the team. “He is a legend. He is the guy who started with RR. He was captain and coach. Right now he is our mentor. We are learning from him. Hope it helps us,” he concluded.
