nope, not necessary he shud be dropped i think they shud come up with better balance side,and their recent addition of parameshwaran will boost the team. he shud be considered in every sort of match from now.and as a hard core fan of RCB and as well as playing cricket right 4m my childhood,the best team fixture wud be kohli captaining and their foreign players wud be chris gayle, Ab devilliers, dilshan,muthaiah maurali,mayank agarwal, zaheer khan,vinay kumar,parameshwaran,appanna,saurabh tiwari/any local all rounder of RCB,i think this balances the side most perfect way,at times you can go ahead with dirk nannes too for quality pace attack but we have parameshwaran fill this gap and let him do this, with this attack we have 5 quality bowlers zaheer,vinay,parameshwaran,muthaiah,appana and accompanied by part time bowlers dilshan,gayle,kohli at times. being die hard RCB fan i expect RCB to perform well apart from wins and loses.please go thru dis balanced team, CHEERS TO RCB

Vettori is a liability and the weakest of the foreign players. He should drop himself and make way for Murali or Dilshan
