IPL 2021: Virat Kohli talks about going to the IPL camp earlier than planned
Virat Kohli and the rest of the Indian contingent has reached the IPL camp after the final test against England was cancelled. Gautam Gambhir shares his thoughts!
The Indian Premier League begins on the 19th of September. The Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their first match on 20th September. They go against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their encounter. Virat Kohli talks about RCB’s preparation ahead of the tournament.
Virat said, “It’s going to be an exciting phase and an important phase for RCB. Similarly for the Indian team at the T20 World Cup.” Speaking of the newcomers, he is excited to meet them. Kohli thinks that the latest additions will fit into the system perfectly.
Virat Kohli also speaks about how uncertain these times are. He hopes that the bio-bubble is secure and strong so that the team has a quality IPL. Gautam Gambhir also discusses, “See there’s going to be a challenge for Virat and there’s going to be a huge challenge for AB de Villiers as well because he will be coming into the tournament without playing any cricket at all. “Virat Kohli will have to adjust quickly because there’ll be hardly any time for him to get used to it. From the five-Test-match series to the T20 format, and AB as well, because these guys need to get runs if they have to have a chance to first qualify for the playoffs and then probably go on to win the title,” Gambhir said
Lastly, Virat had been in touch with all the players to see who’s coming and who’s not. Skipper is excited to see all the players in the practice session and is looking forward to the remainder of the Indian Premier League. Best of luck to team Royal Challengers Bangalore!
