IPL 7: Kohli Aims For The Trophy
With the IPL season starting form today, Virat Kohli, the RCB captain has made his resolve clear to go all out and win the trophy this time round. RCB have reached the finals twice in the past, but the trophy still remains just a stretch away.
With the mega auctions, the RCB squad has a new look with strong additions like Yuvraj Singh, Albie Morkel and Mitchell Starc adding to the arsenal. With the retention of Kohli himself, Gayle and de Villiers, and some strong domestic talent, RCB looks stronger than it did. "This time around we will hope to go few more steps ahead and actually get that trophy. We have added a few more quality players in the side and I am sure we will come out with flying colours,” said Kohli.
Kohli is coming off a great ICC T20 World Cup – having been named the player of the tournament. He would be looking to carry on with his impressive form and also inspire the rest of his troops to perform at full potential. The quick switch of responsibilities to a franchise captain is what Kohli has to deal with.
According to Kohli, the key is to enjoy the tournament. "The more we enjoy cricket, it will be that much better in IPL. There is a good atmosphere and we will try to utilise it."
RCB play their first match tomorrow - 17th April, 2014 against the Delhi Daredevils at Sharjah.
