3 Bowlers Who Can Bowl The Super Over For Royal Challengers Bangalore: The Super Over has gained a lot of popularity in recent times because a lot of matches have ended in a tie and the organizers have been forced to use the one-over eliminator to determine the winner of the game. The batsmen are in comfort zone usually at the time of a Super Over because all they have got is six balls. They need to play with maximum risk.
Even if they fail, the team would not be much angry on them because they had to play an aggressive shot. The real pressure of the Super Over part is on the bowler. He has to use his brain to bowl six deliveries to perfection. Whether to bowl all six deliveries in the block-hole or to bowl with variations is the bowler’s decision but, he should have the knowledge of what the batsman is thinking.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have always fallen short whenever the match enters in the final overs. So, here are the 3 bowlers they can pick to bowl the Super Over in IPL 2020.
While a lot of fans will have a different opinion here, the South African pace bowler, Dale Steyn still remains to be the best fast bowler in T20 cricket. The ones who have a different belief can watch the spell that Steyn bowled against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2019 and watch it on repeat mode. Although he has turned a bit old, the quick gun has still got what it takes.
He can be backed to bowl six balls on the perfect spot and whenever a batsman goes one on one against a quality pacer, nine out of ten times, he will be afraid to play an aggressive shot. Hence, Steyn may be RCB’s first choice bowler.
Isuru Udana :
The reason why Sri Lankan fast bowler, Isuru Udana is placed so highly in this list is that he has been unstoppable in the global T20 leagues all over the world. He has gained a lot of experience by taking part in the other T20 leagues. On top of that, Udana has not played much in the IPL so, the batsmen may find him different than the other bowlers.
Another important reason is that Udana is a left-arm pace bowler so, he will get a unique angle with his left-arm action. The Sri Lankan fast bowler can definitely be backed to bowl a good Super Over.
Navdeep Saini :
In case Virat Kohli wants to build a good Indian option for Super Overs in the T20 World Cup 2020, then the RCB team management would advise him to go with Navdeep Saini. The tall fast bowler can trouble the batsmen with his raw pace. He still needs to improve his line and length however, he can defy the batsmen with his pace and variations.
If he gets an opportunity to prove himself, then Navdeep Saini can bowl some devastating yorkers and cement himself as the best Indian fast bowler when it comes bowling in pressure situations during T20 matches.
