IPL franchises have started their preparation for this year’s edition of the much awaited tournament in the UAE. RCB captain Kohli said that he was first of all happy that the IPL was happening after a long delay due to coronavirus pandemic.
The Indian Captain said that with everything that was going around at one point it was very hard to imagine that the IPL is happening at all. “Couple of months of ago you couldn’t imagine we will have IPL firstly and then things started opening up and we saw other tournaments taking place and got a bit of confidence from that,” Kohli said in a video posted by RCB on their official Twitter handle.
Like most other players, Kohli also returned to the training ground after a long break & was scared how he would fare in his first net session in months. Kohli who recently announced that he & his wife are expecting their first child further said that he felt “nervous” and “jittery” before RCB’s first practice session.
“Now when we had our practice session yesterday is the time I realized how long it has been. When I was heading to the practice session I felt nervous, I felt jittery but things were okay,” said the RCB skipper.
Kohli has been associated with the RCB since the inauguration of IPL in 2008 & is also the top scorer in IPL’s history. Despite of performing so well Kohli is yet to lead RCB to their maiden IPL title though under Kohli’s leadership RCB has reached the finals. This time Kohli will be looking forward to lead RCB to the much desired IPL trophy & hail victorious.
