The Proteas superstar AB De Villiers, who is very well known for his batting all around the park, feels that the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp environment is more special this time in UAE.
“I won’t say we have got the best team, there is a different feel, there is a fresh feel in the team that I can’t explain but it is very exciting. Obviously, looking at the combinations, there is back-up everywhere. We have options to go to,” he told RCB TV.
RCB lacks death over bowling for a long time. In order to overcome the trouble, this time, they have Chris Morris, Dale Steyn, and Isuru Uraudana to accomplish the challenging task. Along with this overseas gang, RCB has also bought Kane Richardson from Australia, but unfortunately, the pacer couldn’t make it into this edition as he got some personal issues in his side.
To bolster the batting order, even more, the Bangalore based team has bought the mighty Australian skipper Aaron Finch. We all know what he could bring on to the table when he gets on a roll. Furthermore, Joshua Phillippe from Australia, a wicket-keeper batter, has also been roped into the squad.
Above all, RCB has this core strength in the middle order with Moeen Ali, Chris Morris, and Shivam Dube. This is the best thing that ever happened to balance the batting of RCB.
The most exciting retainment is Devdutt Padikkal. The young gun from the Karnataka team. He is well versed in this format, and his new techniques might give RCB a different image in this edition of IPL.
With roping in Adam Zampa, the spinners category is also filled with talents such as Yuzvendra Chahal, Pawan Negi, and Moeen Ali.
This is the first time RCB looks so balanced. Even the skipper, Virat Kohli, feels the same.
ABD also praises the RCB captain, Virat Kohli, “We have a really, really good work ethic. Not saying it was different in the past, but everyone seems to be brought into the hardworking environment. And a lot of credit has to go to Virat. He leads by example. He sets the standards. It is pretty easy to follow a captain when a captain is leading from the front. “
Virat Kohli’s fitness level sets the milestone for the teammates to catch up. Virat Kohli entirely changes the Indian team’s fitness expectations. And it has been so with RCB now.
