Okay.S. Bharat might not be an explosive hitter, however that doesn’t essentially imply that he has no place in Twenty20 cricket.
Bharat is tasked with a much less glamorous function at Royal Challengers Bangalore, one which requires him to construct a robust launch pad for large weapons like Glenn Maxwell and A.B. de Villiers.
The Andhra Pradesh wicketkeeper-batsman has carried out his job within the final couple of outings. Steady knocks at one-drop — 44 (35b) towards Rajasthan Royals, and 32 (24b) towards Mumbai Indians — have are available in successful causes.
“At No. 3, my role is to rotate the strike and run well. If you keep the scoreboard ticking at 8-9 an over, you have a good base for Maxi (Maxwell) and others coming in later. If we keep wickets in hand, we can go all out in the death,” Bharat stated after RCB’s win towards Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday.
Bharat loved batting alongside Maxwell on Wednesday, with the duo discussing ways to assist one another within the chase. “Maxwell and I spoke about the areas we can target, and boundary options.
“We also discussed the number of overs a bowler will bowl, and what lengths he will bowl. We talked tactical matters, which we executed well,” he stated.
On taking part in with stars like Virat Kohli, Maxwell and de Villiers, Bharat stated, “Each and every individual you play with will add something to your game, and help you understand the game better.”
