New Delhi. The Indian Premier League is all set to start from September 19. Royal challengers Bangalore will battle Sunrisers Hyderabad on September 21 at 7:30pm.
The video given below and uploaded by the RCB franchise shows how the skipper is all set to give a tough fight to his opponent and probably win the match and tournament. RCB has never won a single trophy in any seasons of IPL.
The skipper further elaborates how boys are getting back into shape after a long period of no cricket due to the deadly coronavirus. In the video he said that he is not in favor of pushing boys which may cause injuries therefore required amount of time is spend by them on field as a part of training sessions to get back on track.
"Well obviously, the first few days, you are getting your eye in, getting back in the thick of things. After five months, it's a bit different, you try and get back into the frame of mind that you usually want to be in when you are competing. Takes a bit of time, so I think heading into these sessions now, where we are batting mostly in the middle with the hitting angles in the field, and understanding the pace of the wicket all those things. Very, very happy with how the team is shaping up," he said.
To boost the zeal of his team members he defined them as "looking great from the fitness point of view.
"A few shoulders were sore initially, because we threw after months and suddenly you realise, a few muscles are asleep. So, I think the guys are getting back into the intensity levels that we want. We don't want to push anyone into a niggle or an injury. We understand it's been a while away from the game. So, I think we have moved ahead in a balanced manner." he stated.
He further said, "We didn't want to be like a maniac, doing six sessions in six days. We gave ample off time to the boys which we will continue to do, along the course of these next few training sessions also. But yeah, from the fitness point of view, everyone's looking great, everyone's in good shape. It's a matter of feeling good and I think I have felt good from the first session onwards. Obviously, there are a few things which you try and rectify along the way, and once you reach your optimum mindset and you enter competition, you just want to stay in that as much as possible."
