Once again Mr Virat showed that he is not a captain material. Did we see virat talked to his bowlers when the chips are down? did he encourage his bowlers and fielders on the field?

Some useless bowlers are in RCB team whom need to be replaced with bowlers like Rampaul and Jakati.

I feel if ABD becomes a captain of RCB he can do better than Virat. After all he is currently a best intellget batsman!!!

Virat in the phase of losing form....... No one can be better than sachin. Virat was only hyped now let's see whether he can keep his cool and come to his original game.

He is just a kid in CRICKET.

Heads were down for Virat and Yuvraj, after seeing the Six from Opponent. When a common man think, whom to give Death overs (Like Albie), why Virat not utilising his experience. I am sure if De Villers were given captaincy, he would have used Albie the Best among, Fast bowlers. Please use this formula

Remove Dinda and Starc (we slipped match in starc bowling), give chance to Rampaul and Jakati.

PS : Due respect to Vijay Malya , you should have considered any Local player like Vinay Kumar, Uthappa, Karun Nair, Manish Pandey.

Ashok Dinda shuld be replace with Abu Nechim. My XI would be Virat, Yuvraj, Parthiv, Vijay Zol, de Villers Gayle (6 batsmen), Chahal,Aaaron, Nechim Rampaul and Murali (5 bowler). Yuvraj provides the extra bowling option.

Its a no brainer, it was a very emotional loss for him and all of RCB supporters. They had the game in their hand for nearly 36 overs and still lost the game. Yuvi had a great performance, 83 off 38 balls, 2 wide balls weren't given wide when he was playing, otherwise 83 off 36 and 4 main wickets including Watson's. But that's why its a team game, you need other players to perform well as well and RCB's bowling was very poor. I don't know what is Dinda doing in the side? He's the best match loser they have, they need to bring Jakati in place of him as spinners are doing well and another specialist bowler Rampaul for Albie.
