“I have said it from the start, because of Faf, the RCB team this year have just got a great opportunity. Because you’ve got the tools and you’ve got a really clever cricket thinker, and he’s won it before quite a few times with Chennai, he knows how to win the IPL. He’s just got a different shirt on.” he concluded.

However, after the win, Faf du Plessis said: “What we are trying to get better at as a team is making sure that one of those top-four creates a bit of a base. We have got some really strong hitters at the back. The games where we didn’t do so well, there was a big cluster of wickets in the powerplay. Obviously some stability but at the same time you gonna make sure you don’t go into defensive mode. You still want to try and take the right bowlers on at the right time. He (Rajat Patidar) has been a great addition, there are some fantastic young Indian batters within our set-up. Even someone like Suyash, he played three games and probably didn’t go the way he would have liked to but there’s some real talent there. Rajat comes in and just plays with that freedom, real cool, calm composure about him. That’s always really good traits for a youngster to have. Mahipal is another young guy coming into the team, we are very lucky that we have got some real good Indian batting talent.”
