A couple of days earlier, he flaunted the new RCB kit on social media. Kohli would be desperate to win the silverware in UAE – RCB has never won the T20 tournament in the previous 12 seasons. Last season as well, Kohli-led RCB finished last in the points table with 11 points from 14 games. In the past, they have feature big names in their side like Yuvraj Singh and Chris Gayle but have been unfortunate to have not gone all the way.
With the kind of players they picked at the auction last year – like Isuru Udana and Chris Morris – they again look a well-balanced unit. Now, it is about coming good together one feels.
The tournament starts from September 19 and the final will be played on November 10. Three venues would be used for a period of 51 days.
