RCB captain Virat Kohli feels that the squad has trained in a very balanced manner in order to gain back the momentum after a five month long break due to coronavirus & is very happy with the way the team is shaping up ahead of the IPL 2020.
The 13th edition of the IPL will be played across three venues in the UAE i.e. Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai. “Few shoulders were sore initially, because we threw after months and suddenly you realize a few muscles are sleep. So I think the guys are getting back into the intensity levels that we want, “Kohli said in a video posted by RCB’s official Twitter handle.
“I think we have moved ahead in a balanced manner. We didn’t wanna be like a maniac doing six sessions in six days. We gave ample time to the boys and will continue to do the same along the course of the next few training sessions,” he added.
The RCB captain admitted that things are quite different after a long break & the team is trying to get back into a competitive frame of mind. “First few days you will look to get your eye in. After five months it’s a bit different, you try and get back in the frame of mind that you usually want to be in when you are competing,” the skipper said
“Heading into these sessions now, where we are batting mostly in the middle with hitting angles in the field and understanding the basics. I am very very happy with how the team is shaping up,” Kohli added.
The RCB squad is all set to face SunRisers Hyderabad in their opening match on September 21. The IPL will be played in the UAE on September 19 & the Finals are scheduled on November 10.
