Pune. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) head coach Sanjay Bangar again said that star batsman Virat Kohli will soon come out of the bad phase he is going through and help the team win matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL). . Kohli has scored nine, zero, zero, 12 and one in his last five innings. The manner in which he is dismissed suggests that he is not in his best form.
“Kohli is a great cricketer as far as his form is concerned,” Bangar told a press conference after RCB’s 29-run loss to Rajasthan Royals. He has experienced such ups and downs many times before. I have assessed him very closely.” He said, “He has the passion and the spirit and he will soon come out of this phase and play a big innings. He will contribute significantly to the team’s victory in the upcoming important matches. The way he prepares, he never takes any slack and that is his specialty. His attitude is commendable. Yes, he scored less in the last matches but he is mentally strong enough to be able to do better soon.
Bangar has also worked with Kohli in the national team when he was the batting coach. Former India international cricketer Bangar, however, admitted that the top-order’s form is a matter of concern. “We all have seen that facing the new ball is a challenge for most of the team. Whenever we lose wickets in the beginning, we lose many wickets in a row. That’s why we are losing matches right now.” RCB have won five matches this season and lost four. They are currently occupying the fifth position in the points table.
