RCB’s balanced way of training gets the skipper’s thumbs up.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s skipper Virat Kohli has given a thumbs up to the team’s progress in reference to the preparedness ahead of the Indian Premier League in the UAE.

In a recent video posted on RCB’s Twitter account, Kohli said the team trained in a balanced manner in order to regain the momentum following the five-month hiatus due to the pandemic.

Kohli, though admitting a few sore shoulders, expressed his overall happiness as to how the team was shaping up ahead of IPL 2020.

“Few shoulders were sore initially, because we threw after months and suddenly you realise a few muscles are sleep. So I think the guys are getting back into the intensity levels that we want,” Kohli said in the video.

“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.

Kohli looked in great shape as he was seen in full throttle at the net session during the video clip shared on the team’s Twitter handle on Saturday.

The RCB skipper admitted that things are quite different after a long break and the side 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.

Kohli has played 177 matches for RCB so far and has managed to score 5,412 runs in the tournament. He also picked up the Orange Cap in the 2016 edition after scoring 973 runs, including four centuries and seven half-centuries.

The IPL 2020 will be played in the UAE from September 19-November 10 and the tournament will run for 53 days.

RCB will take on SunRisers Hyderabad in their opening match on September 21.
