2) Indian trio of spinners
The Indian trio of spinners – Yuzvendra Chahal (Right-arm leg spinner), Pawan Negi (Left-arm finger spinner) and Washington Sundar (Right-arm off-spinner) — have the skill set in them to bamboozle the top batsman in the league.
It really takes a lot of guts for a leggie to play its home games at the Chinnaswamy stadium, where most people go for runs. It can really take a toll out of you. Chahal most of the times emerge out at the top and had made a strong case of being one of the best spinners in the IPL. He is the current purple cap holder of this season and is going stronger match by match.
Pawan Negi is a left arm finger spinner who is a gun fielder and is also a useful batsman down the order. He has also represented the Indian National side. In the only opportunity he got in the IPL 2019 so far, he bowled a magic spell getting the important wickets of Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa against KKR and fielded brilliantly in the match as well. RCB would be looking to use him more and utilize his all-round abilities.
Although, still not being tested in this year’s IPL, the teenager from Chennai can play a huge role in RCB entering into the playoffs. The offie is known for is economical spells and is a decent enough batsman too with a few centuries in the domestic circuit as well.
Sundar was named Man of the Series in the Nidahas trophy which was his first tournament for the Indian National Senior team and is a strong contender to be a prominent member in the Indian team for future.
RCB can find a place for Washington Sundar in the playing XI which can strengthen the bowling and lower order batting too which they are struggling at the moment.
