Royal Challengers Bangalore retain Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers for IPL 2014

Royal Challengers Bangalore retain Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers for IPL 2014

Well, it's fantastic to know RCB
decided to retain Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers for IPL
2014.


 


I'm sure everyone guessed we
would do the same.


 


New Zealand spinner Daniel
Vettori has been named as head coach, Trent Woodhill the batting and fielding
coach while former South African speedster Allan Donald will be the bowling
coach which sums up to be an EXCITING IPL season.


 


These are some quotes of the
players after the retention:


Kohli:  "I am happy and
honoured to be retained by RCB and it's great to be back to Bangalore,
literally my 2nd home now...Am looking forward to working closely with the new
Head Coach Dan Vettori. Bowling Coach Allan Donald's experience will add a lot
of value. Together with my other retained mates Chris and AB and the rest of
the team, I hope to fulfill the faith that RCB and the fans of Bangalore have
reposed in me."


 


"Home Again!! I am happy to
be retained by RCB and looking forward to the love and affection... Bangalore,
here I come again and let's rock!!!!," said the big-hitting Chris Gayle,
who had taken the world by storm with his 66-ball knock of 175 in the 2013
edition of IPL.


 


South Africa's ODI skipper AB de
Villiers too was happy with his team's decision and said, " Honoured to be
retained by RCB and extremely happy to be staying in Bangalore. RCB and
Bangalore has a special place in my heart and I look forward to contributing to
the Team's success, come IPL."


 


The team's chairman, Vijay Mallya
spoke about the trio and said, "This formidable trio of players have
contributed significantly to RCB's past performance and are match-winners in
their own right. Their retention means that we have a strong platform to build
an exceptional team."

All said and done, we fans know
& are sure the IPL would be OURS this time :D
