Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his India and Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Mohammed Siraj reached UAE after the Manchester Test was cancelled. RCB are placed third on the points table at the moment with five wins from seven games. They start their campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders on September 20. They have already beaten KKR once in the season.

Meanwhile, on their way from Manchester to the UAE, Virat Kohli spoke about the Manchester Test match which was cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances. After the Indian support staff were affected by COVID, the team was rather reluctant to play the final Test.

“Unfortunate that we had to end up here early, but with COVID in place, things are very uncertain. Anything can happen at any time. Hopefully, we’re able to maintain a good, strong and secure environment, and have a quality IPL,” the RCB skipper said.

Its Going To Be An Exciting Phase: Virat Kohli

Kohli, along with Mohammed Siraj, arrived in the United Arab Emirates just a day after the Test match was cancelled. Virat Kohli spoke about the importance of the UAE leg. He said once the IPL is over, the focus then shifts to the T20 World Cup also to be played in the UAE.

“It’s going to be an exciting phase and a very important one for us at RCB and then for the Indian team at the T20 World Cup” said Kohli.

The franchise roped in as many as four replacements ahead of the start of the UAE leg. Daniel Sams, Adam Zampa, Kane Richardson and Finn Allen have been replaced by Dushmantha Chameera, Wanindu Hasaranga, George Garton, and Tim David respectively.
