RCB is gearing up to name this IPL title. Captain Virat Kohli has been entrusted with the responsibility of fulfilling this dream. The responsibility has also been given to South African batsman AB de Villiers. Both of them are going to meet Aaron Finch, Chris Morris and Adam Jampa this time, while the team already has players like Yujvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav and Moin Ali.
AB de Villiers said in a video shared on the RCB's Twitter handle, "I think, more or less, the clarity about the IPL came a month ago. The BCCI has done a remarkable job in starting the IPL, we are very excited to play the tournament. I feel better than ever, so I want to help the team by playing well with the players".
In addition, he further said, "We have worked very hard, we have a good work ethic. In fact, it seems that we have all bought this hard-working environment. The credit goes to Virat Kohli, he sets an example and leads the team. When you have a captain who is always ahead, it is very easy to follow."
AB de Villiers has been the former captain of South Africa. He said in the video, "It is natural to break, Sometimes you get hurt and you stay out for six or seven months. I know the feeling of coming back from a big break. It's amazing how you can get back into the grooves, nothing guarantees performance, but it's the beauty of the game, you never know what to expect." Talking about Virat Kohli, RCB is yet to win the IPL title. The team had already reached the final of the year 2009, 2011 and 2016 editions but could not win the title. Now this time everyone hopes this team will name the title.
