Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have suffered with their bowling attack since the start of the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015. Virat Kohli is eagerly waiting for Adam Milne and Mitchell Starc to bolster their bowling line-up.
So far, Australian pacer Sean Abbott has been their bowling spearhead alongside Varun Aaron and Abu Nechim. Abbott was given a chance in place of Starc or Milne, but could not impress his skipper. Adam Milne is likely to replace Abbott for their Sunday game against the Mumbai Indians (MI). Starc is yet to recover from his knee niggle, till then Milne is likely to lead the RCB pace attack.
"I think Adam Milne coming in from next game onwards - hopefully he is almost 100 per cent fit and that will boost bowling big time. Mitch Starc joining us, then it is going to be a complete turnaround," Kohli told The Times of India.
When David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan was going hammer and tongs on the RCB bowlers, Yuzvendra Chahal bowled an economic spell where he also picked up the only two wickets that fell. Kohli went on to laud this young talent and said he is an important aspect in their side.
"Chahal bowled with the wet ball in those conditions. The wicket being flat and the ball was coming nicely in the second innings - that is the big positive for us," exclaimed Kohli.
Kohli also believes that Aaron and Nechim will get find their rhythm soon. "Guys take some time to get into rhythm. So we need to give them time. Someone like Varun and Abu, they have the ability to hit the length," added Kohli.
RCB will face Mumbai Indians in their next game on Sunday at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
