Virat Kohli in Top Form as RCB Gears Up for IPL Opener

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are poised to kick off their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign on Friday, and star batter Virat Kohli is in prime form, according to the team’s Director of Cricket, Mo Bobat.

Bobat, who has been closely observing Kohli during training, praised the batter’s exceptional form. “Virat’s in a good place. He’s an absolute champion cricketer, and he’s at a stage in his career where most of what he does is hardwired into him. He’s coming in fresh, which is what we’re excited about,” Bobat said at a pre-match press conference.

Kohli has had a break from cricket and is eager to get involved, Bobat added. “He’s had a good bit of time off, he’s in a great frame of mind, and he’s hitting the ball brilliantly.”

Bobat, who joined RCB this season along with new head coach Andy Flower, expressed excitement about the team’s balanced squad. “We’ve got a fantastic group of players, we’re in good shape, and we’re fully fit. We’re going to pay most of our attention to how we want to play our cricket,” he said.

Bobat highlighted the team’s strong bowling attack, which includes international and IPL-winning experience. “We’ve got a lot of international experience and IPL-winning experience. In our Indian quicks, we’ve got some high-quality players as well, with international and ‘A’ team experience,” he said.

The spin department also boasts potential and experience, with players like Himanshu Sharma, Mayank Dagar, and Karn Sharma. “We feel like we’ve got a really good balanced side. We’ve got some good all-rounders as well that will contribute. Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green. We’re very confident with our bowling attack,” Bobat concluded.
