Virat Kohli speaks on purchases
Virat Kohli is happy with the purchase of the players in the auction while he hopes that RCB will play fearless cricket. He said that they entered with a plan which they successfully achieved in the auction.
“We are pretty happy how the auction went for us. We went up with a plan in mind and wanting to fill up the slots that were not quite strong or were vacant for the past two years. I think we have been pretty spot on with what we wanted. A lot of people might not be able to see the reason behind what we did but that’s fine because we have our plan in place and we have our own vision where we want to head as the team so I’m excited, happy and all the players are excited.”
“some new faces are rearing to go and wanted to do the job for RCB. Looking forward to the great season, playing fearless cricket. The kind of squad we have put in place, it will allow us to play freely and enjoy ourselves. Bring back the fun and the brand of cricket that RCB has always played i.e, Play bold and fearless. And need support as always.”
