Virat Kohli Announces the comeback of Devdutt Padikkal in the RCB squad!
RCB captain Kohli said that it wasn’t a bad toss to lose, “The pitch looks patchy so not a bad toss to lose, runs on board in Chennai’s pitch is important. It we do get wickets in the middle overs, it will become difficult. Was a good game in front of the Mumbai Indians but we were not at our best against MI. To finish with eight wickets down is not a good thing but as a bowling unit it was really great to be back in the game. We will need to be more professional, play ourselves & bring a good total on board. We will have to stay ahead of the game. Padikkal is back & he replaces Patidar. I will open & Shahbaz will bat at No. 3”, Kohli said after the toss.
