IPL 2024 is not going up to the expectations of Royal Challengers Bengaluru as Faf du Plessis and co are placed at the bottom of the points table. In six games in the season so far, RCB have lost five and left the fans utterly disappointed. Despite having big names like Faf, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and others, RCB are having a horrendous campaign. Recently, former England captain Michael Vaughan shared his views regarding trophyless run in the cash-rich league and the abysmal performance in the ongoing season.

Vaughan, who recently appeared on ‘The Ranveer Show’ on YouTube, stated that the entire team should act like a single unit for RCB and not depend on individuals for a big innings.

“What I like about the fact the RCB have never won is it proves to me that team sport is not just about individuals. You can go and buy all the biggest individual names and put them into a team but it doesn’t mean you’re going to win and it’s been proven at the RCB,” said Vaughan.

They’ve signed some incredible players – AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Faf – unbelievable players. But it tells you unless you get the whole team operating and every single player knowing the roles and identifying different roles and it might be that you have to rejig your team slightly just to allow someone else to flourish in a different position I don’t see the RCB s doing that,” he added.

Vaughan further stated that RCB cannot win the IPL, unless they identify every player’s role perfectly.

“I don’t see them trying anything different. I just see them thinking that – it’s probably wrong but again it’s perception – they just seem to think because they’ve got great players in this team, the management thinks well we’re going to win. It proves to me that even though you’ve got great players unless you get the team ethic, culture and you absolutely identify everyone’s roles perfectly, you’re not going to win trophies,” said Vaughan.

After losing against Mumbai Indians by seven wickets, RCB will be squaring off against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday.
