The Bangalore franchise is one of the most followed teams of the Indian T20 League. In the 14 years history of the tournament, Bangalore has played the finals three times but has not yet lifted the trophy. Bangalore often goes for big changes before each season, but the prized trophy keeps eluding them. The Bangalore fans have a slogan ‘Ee Sala Cup Namde’, which means that the cup is ours, but the team has not been able to fulfil their wishes till now.
But this year, Bangalore seems a balanced side and here are five reasons why they might win their maiden title this year.
5. Better Pace Bowling Attack: Over the years, it has been apparent that while going for big names in the batting department, Bangalore has neglected its bowling. By the end of each season, it becomes evident that Bangalore suffered from a lack of good bowling options.
This year in the mega auction, Bangalore has paid special attention to building up a good bowling line-up. They have included players like Josh Hazlewood, David Willey and Jason Behrendorff in their squad. These players will combine with Indian bowlers like Harshal Patel, Mohammad Siraj and Siddharth Kaul, which makes their bowling look very potent.
