RCB Coach’s Cryptic Message: Changes Coming for Bowlers?

“Raw pace is never going to be the answer; you need some specific kind of bowler with different skill sets to be able to succeed at chinnaswamy.” These were the words from RCB’s head coach, Andy Flower, after RCB’s campaign ended with a loss against the Rajasthan Royals by 4 wickets in the eliminator.
Rcb failed to make their home their fortress in yet another season as none of the pacers, Siraj (ER 9.18), Ferguson (ER 10.62), Dayal (ER 9.14), or Reece Topley (ER 11.20), failed to pick wickets at home.
“Very skilled bowlers are definitely needed in (M) Chinnaswamy (Stadium). Pace alone won’t work in this situation. At Chinnaswamy, you need bowlers who are knowledgeable, skilled, and able to bowl to very particular schemes,” Flower stated.
With the mega auction scheduled for next year, Flower wants RCB to get players who could play specific roles for the team.
“I still need some time to process what transpired in this game, so I don’t really want to talk about those things just yet. When asked about the franchise’s strategy for the upcoming season, Flower responded, “But  I do think that, as part of your question, the Chinnaswamy has some particular qualities that we need to be able to exploit.”
Talking about the batting part, Flower believes that the team needs players who can keep up with the pace of the game.
Flower said, “We’ve all witnessed how the power struggle has recently impacted Twenty20 cricket. Regarding the batting department, it is imperative to appoint players possessing the necessary power to maintain the required pace.”
