Star Indian batsman Virat Kohli holds the key to success for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015, feels Bharat Arun. If RCB has to win the tournament, Kohli will have to lead from the front and get back to scoring runs. Arun believes that Kohli has all the abilitites expected from a captain.
After the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2015, people might have lost their faith in Kohli, but it seems nothing can deter Arun from believing in RCB skipper's ability. He added that Kohli is a class act and its just the matter of time he will be up and running again.
Kohli has been a quintessential cricketer and is never afraid of expressing his emotions on the field. Arun said that Kohli has played many match-winning knocks for India as well as RCB.
"He is passionate about the game. He is not selfish. He thinks and has time for other members of the team. He's spot on technically too, be it field settings, bowling changes or strategies,'' ibnlive.in.com quoted Arun as saying in an interview with a daily.
When asked about the recent RCB team, he said that it has abundant talent in the form of AB de Villiers, Mitchell Starc, Chris Gayle and Darren Sammy that will come in handy in this edition of IPL.
Arun added that all these players have led their respective countries from the front and that he belives they would do the same for RCB as well. Arun also said that fatigue will not be a cause for concern ahead of the IPL, as the players were aware of the schedule.
