After their fourth consecutive defeat in the IPL 2019 so far, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team is yet to open their account in this season. Needless to say, their skipper Virat Kohli is all aware of the alarming situation and acknowledged that the team is in “bad” shape. However, he thinks that the Bangalore-based franchise will be able to turn things around.
On Tuesday, Virat Kohli led the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the 100th time in the Indian Premier League when they played against the Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Kohli was appointed as the official captain of the RCB ahead of the 2013 season. As he completed 100 matches as the RCB captain, only Gautam Gambhir (129 matches) and MS Dhoni (162 matches) are ahead of him.
We can turn things around
However, RCB’s barren streak continued as the Royals got better of them. But captain Virat Kohli is confident of turning things around in the near future. “When team hasn’t got off to a great start then bodies in the outfield can be a bit stiff. There can be a bit of nervousness. In four games, we would have wanted one or maybe two games to go our way. We have 10 games to go, hopefully, we can turn things around. We played well against Mumbai and in this game,” he said in the post-match presentation.
The Indian captain also indicated at making changes in the side to get the right mix for upcoming IPL matches and felt that the fresh players will make the difference to the team.
“This tournament is not that long, it is not going to go on for months and you have to think on your feet and have to think about the best combination going forward. Hopefully, we will get fresh guys in and they can give a match-winning performance.,” the RCB skipper added.
