Brad Hogg says “RCB have made a mistake by not going after all-rounders” in the Indian Premier League. Brad Hogg feels Royal Challengers Bangalore have the mistake of not signing all-rounders as replacements. For Daniel Sams and Washington Sundar. Sams and Sundar will be unavailable for the second half of IPL 2021. Royal Challengers Bangalore were recently named Wanindu Hasaranga, Tim David, Dushmantha Chameera, and George Garton. As their new signings in the franchise.
“There are two big losses for RCB – Daniel Sams and Washington Sundar. They are two good all-rounders in the lower-order, who give good dimensions with both bat and ball. That is going to be a huge loss for them. The replacements they have got are David, Chameera, Hasaranga and George Garton. They don’t really match up with the all-rounders that they are missing. I think RCB has made a mistake by not going after all-rounders,” Hogg said.
He added that it will be important for pacer Harshal Patel. Also, to carry on his good form. Hogg also stated that RCB’s over-reliance on a few batters like Glenn Maxwell, Virat Kohli, and AB de Villiers. Moreover, speaking particularly about Maxwell. Brad Hogg said that his consistency will be tested in the UAE.
“Harshal Patel was sensational at the start of the year for RCB. It will be interesting to see if he continues his form. Also, Glenn Maxwell, can he continue the batting prowess that he showed in the first phase? He has got a bit of a break. We know that he has had a lot of ups and downs in his career. That balance is a bit of a worry for me,” Brad Hogg said.

“If RCB loses Maxwell and Virat Kohli early, they will be relying heaving on AB de Villiers. I don’t think they have got enough batting around them to cover that loss there considering they are lacking in the all-round department as well,” Hogg also added.
Lastly, Royal Challengers Bangalore was impressive in the first half of IPL 2021. But according to Hogg, a different Bangalore team will be seen in the UAE. Also, they might not make a similar impact.
