Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal said that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is a more balanced side compared to their last two seasons in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Chahal, who has taken 105 wickets in the showpiece event, boosted confidence and said that the camp has positive energy which was first felt in the ninth edition of IPL (2016). RCB had a good IPL season in 2016. The Kohli-led team was successful in reaching the final of the tournament but suffered a defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
“We have a more balanced side this year, especially bowling. We have won two out of three matches and we are very positive this year,” Chahal said in a virtual press conference on Thursday.
He said, “Everyone in the camp including Virat Bhai (Virat Kohli) and AB de Villiers is saying that there is a different feeling. Something that we have felt in IPL 2016.”
RCB have won two of their three matches so far. The Kohli-led team won their last game after defeating Mumbai Indians in a super over.
Chahal dismissed opener Quinton de Kock in the game and conceded 48 runs. The leg-spinner also said that whether he plays or not, his only objective is to watch RCB take the IPL trophy.
“There is positive energy in the camp and also from the management side. If I am playing or not – my goal has always been to win the trophy for RCB,” Chahal said.
RCB will play horn with Rajasthan Royals on 3 October next.
