Virat Kohli the centre of almost every exciting thing about cricket in India said that the likes of AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle will be able to play a bigger role this year than in the previous 3 seasons for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
He said that the arrival of batsmen like Badrinath and the Windies T20 skipper Darren Sammy has given the depth that the teams batting needed and that this would help the trio of players mentioned above with Kohli would feel less of the pressure of scoring which he felt is the reason why most teams which are successful are.
Kohli who felt he could win the title this season went on to add how with addition of people like Dinesh Karthik would allow someone like AB de Villiers start hitting the ball hard from the first ball and that they could be more aggressive in their approach. He felt that after losing the chance to win title previous year, they should be looking to take another step and start winning trophies.
About Mitchell start who might be carrying a small injury Kohli said that he is arguably the best bowler in world cricket now and that it is better having him fresh at the business end of the tournament rather than miss him at that time.
