IPL 2021: Virat Kohli feels these 2 guys would be highly influential for RCB in UAE (Check out)

The Indian Premier League 2021 resumes in the United Arab Emirates from Sunday. Royal Challengers Bangalore would be led again by Virat Kohli, as the side remains in the hunt for its maiden IPL title.

Although RCB bolsters some star powers, it has never managed to lay its hand on the coveted title, despite finishing as runner-up on three occasions. However, Kohli feels that things could change this season and has named the new Sri Lankan duo Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera for playing an influential role with the side.

Speaking at a virtual event, he stated that with Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa missing out in UAE, having been instrumental during India's leg, their replacements know the conditions quite well, similar to those in the sub-continent, reports ESPNCricinfo. He reckoned that the duo has played enough cricket on such pitches, besides estimating that their skill sets would be of utmost help in Dubai.

He also assured that the guys already blended in with the team culture, while the main squad has also been highly motivated. Although the loss of Richardson and Zampa has been massive, Kohli says that the side has never pondered on it, while the addition of the two new guys has made them stronger in all dimensions.

Speaking on the practice session, he said that he did not get the feeling of the season coming to a halt, as the entire side is ready to begin from where it left off. He affirmed that the training has been intense so far, with all the guys sweating it out to the fullest as they are into the IPL groove.
