Virat Kohli does not have tension of IPL, said- I am feeling at peace this time
Virat Kohli and his Royal Challengers Bangalore will take off this season, having forgotten the Indian Premier League (IPL) failures so far. Kohli said that I am feeling peace like 2016. Our team is the most balanced. This time we can win the title. He said this in RCB’s YouTube show Bold Diaries.
In 2016 RCB played the final. In that season, Captain Kohli had scored 4 centuries. But the team could not win the title. Despite having players like Kohli and AB de Villiers, the team could not qualify for the playoffs in the last three seasons.
Kohli said that both he and de Villiers felt that the team could be successful this season. He said that I never felt such a relax before the season. AB is also feeling the same and has come fully fit. I think I am feeling better and more balanced as far as the IPL environment is concerned.
The RCB captain further said that what happened in the past, we will forget and play this season without pressure. We have done this before. We have talented players and people like to watch them play. This is why fans have expectations from the team.
He said it was a good decision to make Mike Hewson the head coach of the team. They act as a bridge between team management and players. In such a situation, despite the success in IPL as a team, Kohli can focus on cricket due to the confidence of the team management. Virat said that if he (Hessen) is worried, he can come and talk. They have every right and dialogue is always welcome.
