The Royal Challengers Bangalore has a very rough run in the IPL 2017. Their skipper, Virat Kohli, also had a very poor show in the previous season. However, things were not the same in the season that preceded the 2017 edition. RCB had finished as the finalists of the 2016 edition and Virat Kohli was the winner of the Orange Cap. It was a heartbreak for them when they lost the finals against the Sunrisers Hyderabad back then.
Now, with the 2018 edition coming up, the RCB skipper Virat Kohli is determined to win the trophy. He remarked that the RCB fans are desperately waiting for an IPL title. He added that more than the fans, his hunger to win the title is much greater. As per the quotes in Hindustan Times, he conceded that he will be giving his best shot in the tournament this year.
“More than the fans I want to win the cup. I have been with Bangalore for last 10 years and we haven’t crossed the final hurdle three times. I can assure you, my commitment is going to be 120 % to try and achieve the goal this time,” Virat Kohli quoted.
On the team combinations
Commenting on the team combinations of the RCB, Virat Kohli admitted that the strong point of the franchise has been their batting. However, this season, the management has done well by roping in some quality bowlers at the auctions. Kohli cited that they put in a lot of thought process before narrowing down on the players they wanted to buy at the auctions.
“The batting has been strong point for RCB over the years, but I think the strengthening of bowling department has been a massive boost for us from this auction. I am very optimistic about our chances heading into this IPL. Some of them I know personally. We picked up players who could contribute to our culture and not be so worried about their personal performances,” Kohli noted.
