Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli is happy that he has finally got the right combination and equally happy with the fact that they have jumped up to the fourth spot in the points table of the Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015.
The Kohli-led RCB have bounced back big time with two back-to-back, thumping victories over Rajasthan Royals (RR) by nine wickets, followed by Delhi Daredevils by 10 wickets, reported the official website of RCB.
Kohli is pleased with the fact that they have improved in all the departments of the game, with the batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders chipping in with their valuable contribution. He has also realized the need of striking the right balance in this shorter format of the game and is elated to find the right combination. As a result, RCB look far more settled and a dangerous side now.
"We have the best combination now and it is important to get the balance right in T20 cricket. I think this is the most balanced side we are playing," said Kohli in an interview.
Kohli also heaped praise on Carribbean Chris Gayle who was seen in his own flavour alongside his skipper and guided their side to a comfortable victory. Gayle was rested by RCB for couple of matches. He came back to the side against the Daredevils and without wasting any time, was on a song.
"He's pretty cool on the outside, but pretty intense from the inside. I am much more expressive, so that kind of brings the balance," added India's Test captain.
With the arrival of Mitchell Starc, their bowling attack has also changed. The pace duo of Starc and Varun Aaron have been bowling well upfront with the new ball. And in the last two matches, they did not disappoint their skipper.
Kohli wants to carry on with this winning momentum into their future matches and make a point in this edition of the IPL. "The last game was very important and it was a timely win. We can't afford to be complacent. Momentum is very important and we should not lose it," exclaimed Kohli.
