Feeling Good After Multiple Sessions, Legs Are Moving Quicker: RCB's Padikkal

RCB boast of a strong squad for the forthcoming 13th edition of IPL.

AB de Villiers has lavished high praise on Virat Kohli saying the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain leads by example and makes it easier to follow as he is always leading from the front.

RCB is yet to win the IPL title.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is undoubtedly the biggest carnival in India and is ready to kickstart from Saturday, September 19.

De Villiers also threw light on the 3TC format that saw the best of South Africa's players battle it out during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. Both of them are going to meet Aaron Finch, Chris Morris and Adam Jampa this time, while the team already has players like Yujvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav and Moin Ali.

Dream11 IPL 2020 is set to be played in United Arab Emirates from 19 September with RCB to play their opening game on 21 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai.

RCB batsman Devdutt Padikkal says the team's training for IPL 2020 has been going great and he is slowing getting back his rhythm which he had before the lockdown.

On the connectivity front, it offers support for dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11a/c, Bluetooth 5.1, 5G, NFC, GPS, and a Type-C port. The OnePlus Nord has been a massive success and now the company is looking to create something that's even cheaper.

De Villiers has also spoken with optimism about how this year feels different, and credited Kohli for the team's work ethic. "I am excited about Josh, I watched him play for the Sydney Sixers, he takes the new ball on, he is a very talented player, I have heard Gilchrist say really some good things about him", he said. The four guys joining us will add to what we have created here and that is a very special team environment.

He continued, "The credit goes to Virat".

Both Kohli and De Villiers have been upbeat about RCB's chances this time around. "It is pretty easy to follow when you have a captain who is always leading from the front", de Villiers said.

"The biggest challenge for Virat Kohli the batsman is that they need to win the tournament necessarily. Sometimes injuries happen and you are out for six or seven months", he said. "It's unbelievable how you can get back into the groove and find that confidence into yourself, nothing guarantees a good performance, but that's the beauty of the sport, you never know what to expect", he explained.

After reaching the finals in 2016, the side have performed miserably by their lofty standards and finished at the bottom of the table in the 2017 and 2019 editions.

Fresh blood in the form of youngsters like Padikkal will surely turn the odds in RCB's favour as they need that hunger and creativity to lay their hands on the prestigious trophy after having dismal campaigns since the past three years.
