From an RCB point of view, most of the players felt left out: Chris Gayle

During a different interview ahead of the 2023 season, the former West Indies skipper revealed that the team had a focus on only a few players which meant that the other players felt left out.

"You know sometimes being one of the main players, the main man. I am always in my own zone. What I understand when it comes from an RCB point of view, a lot of players felt left out. A lot of players didn't feel like they are part of the franchise. It was only three players getting all the attention, myself, Virat and AB. So a lot of players pretty much mentally are nowhere within the team. So that's always going to be a challenge to win a title", said Gayle.
