1 comment
Rahul Dravid was blamed for the failure of Bangalore Royal Challengers in the inaugural edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2008). Rahul Dravid took the blame in spite of the fact that he was the leading run scorer for Bangalore Royal Challengers.

The list of leading run scorers of Bangalore Royal Challengers in IPL 2008 is as follows:

1. Rahul Dravid - 371 runs, 14 matches, Average: 28.53
2. Mark Boucher - 225 runs, 10 matches, Average: 32.14
3. Jacques Kallis - 199 runs, 11 matches, Average: 18.09
4. Virat Kohli - 165 runs, 13 matches, Average: 15.00
5. Ross Taylor - 149 runs, 4 matches, Average: 37.25

Ross Taylor has the best average for the Royal Challengers at 37.25. The low averages of all the batsmen speaks volumes on why Royal Challengers failed to provide any challenge in IPL 2008. Every other team has at least one player with a batting average of more than 37.25
