RCB head coach Andy Flower commended Virat Kohli and captain Faf du Plessis for their instrumental roles in RCB’s resurgence during the latter part of the IPL 2024 season. With a series of wins, RCB now has a realistic chance of qualifying for the playoffs, provided they win all their remaining matches.

Flower Full Of Praise For Kohli And Du Plessis

Flower believes that the leadership exhibited by both Kohli and du Plessis has been crucial in revitalizing RCB’s playoff aspirations, particularly with their leading performances on the field.

“Pressure is always there. Performances are a part of the game that we play. Pressure is there when you are winning as well. You need to perform as well in the game. But I think for me the nice thing, at least from the captaincy point of view, is that I feel like we’re playing the style of cricket that we have been wanting to play for so long. It’s more happiness that we are doing ourselves justice whereas, before, the opposite was happening,” Faf du Plessis said on the RCB podcast.

In their upcoming crucial match against DC at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on May 12, much of the attention will once again be on the opening partnership between du Plessis and Kohli. After a slump following their victory over PBKS on March 25, RCB faced a six-match losing streak that pushed them to the bottom of the points table. However, their turnaround began with a win against SRH on April 25, followed by a remarkable four-match winning streak leading up to the DC clash.

Both du Plessis and Kohli shared their team’s mindset ahead of the pivotal match against DC.
