Despite the presence of AB de Villiers, Chris Gayleand Alex Hales, unarguably the most dangerous trio of T20 cricket, Rangpur Riders coach Tom Moody stressed on collective effort, stating that big names alone can't win a trophy.

As Rangpur will come up in the mission with an aim to retain the title, Moody also believes that the success will mostly depend on how they can recognise the role of the domestic players in the star studded line up.

"it is great to have AB for about seven games and Alex Hales for the whole tournament. We have a number of good local and international players. It is not going to be an individual that will help win the tournament. It is going to be a collective effort. We will be relying on all our domestic and international players to step up when their opportunity comes. An individual can influence and win a game from time to time, it is more a team effort that wins championships," Moody said before Riders practice session on Thursday at the Academy ground of Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

"I haven’t worked with AB de Villiers one-on-one before. I have worked with Hales and Gayle before. It will be great to work with AB. He is going to add a different presence to this side. He is a world-class player in this format. He can be very dangerous. The focus won’t be on him as an individual. I think it is important that we all step up in our playing XI to play our roles," he added.

"We are lucky enough to secure some familiar faces from last year, but I am excited to have a look at our domestic players with whom I haven’t worked before. It is important that they recognise their role in our campaign is as important as anyone else’s in the team."
