AB de Villiers could be RCB’s Wicket Keeper
AB de Villiers could be Royal Challengers Bangalore RCB’s wicket keeper in IPL 2020 said RCB head coach Simon Katis. Parthiv Patel and Joshua Phillips of Western Australia are the wicketkeeper options of RCB.
With AB de Villiers. Phillips will not get a place in the final squad, there are doubts about Parthiv Patel at different times. As a result, AB de Villiers’ chances of wicketkeeping have been strengthened.
“Obviously we’ve had a lot of discussions around our team, ” said head coach Simon Katis. AB (de Villiers) has been wicket-keeping in South Africa for a long time so I am sure it will be a topic of discussion. But what is the right balance in this situation will be discussed later. He has played a huge role for RCB and South Africa over the years, with countless outstanding performances. ”
“We know he is a world-class performer. And he has played a great tournament in Africa The team also won the trophy. We are also looking forward to how he bats or manages the wicket, ” he added.
Katis added that Karnataka’s young batsman Devdutt Padikkal, who recently performed well for his team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Perhaps it could be his IPL debut in RCB.
“We picked him up before the domestic tournament, ” said Katis. This 20-year-old left-handed batsman will be very effective for our team. The left-handed and right-handed combination is an extra advantage for the team all the time. He has worked hard to play in the IPL. We will host a few warm-up matches before the start of the final tournament. I hope he will get a place there. ”
The Indian players of RCB are already in the home quarantine after reaching Dubai. Home quarantine is coming to an end soon. They have already started preparations for IPL 2020. Note that this year’s IPL will start on September 17 and the final will be held on November 10.
