Virat Kohli, the skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore is currently sweating it out for his team in UAE, ahead of the much-awaited IPL 2020. Virat Kohli, who is a fitness freak, has been leaving no stone unturned to find the right balance for his team and prepare his squad for the upcoming league.
Recently, Royal Challengers Bangalore took to their social media and shared a video of Virat Kohli and his squad grinding it hard in their training session. In the video, Virat Kohli said that his team is looking in good shape and expressed his happiness after the first session onwards. He said:
“From a fitness point of view everyone is looking great, everyone is in good shape. It’s a matter of feeling good and I think I felt good from the first session onwards,”
“Obviously, there are few things that you try and rectify along the way and once you reach your optimum mindset and you enter the competition you just want to stay in that as much as possible.”
He also expressed his concern about the health of his players and how they are moving ahead to find a balance. He said:
“We don’t want to push anyone into a niggle or an injury because we understand it’s been a while away from the game. So I think we moved ahead in a balanced manner. We don’t want to be a maniac like doing 6 sessions in six days. We gave ample off time to the boys which we will continue to do along the course of the these next few training sessions also,”
Furthermore, Virat Kohli said that the need of the hour was to start slowly and increase the intensity of training sessions, which the Virat Kohli led side has successfully managed to attain. Virat expressed how he is very happy to see how his team has been shaping up. He said:
“First few days we are just getting our eye in, getting back in thick of things after 5 months, it’s a bit different, try and get into the frame of mind which you usually want to be. It takes a bit of time, in these sessions now we are mostly batting in the middle, trying to figure out hitting angles, understanding the pace of the wicket, and all these. I am very very happy with how the team is shaping up,”
Meanwhile, RCB Will open their IPL campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad on September 21 in Dubai. The much-awaited league will be played across three UAE venues this season — Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah.
