The Royal Challengers Bangalore will be boosted by their exciting last-ball victory against the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2021 final. Veteran batsman AB de Villiers, on the other hand, believes Virat Kohli and his teammates are only getting started.
Bangalore is on the verge of playing their best cricket in the newest edition of the cash-rich competition, according to the former South Africa captain. He also stressed the need for peaking at critical points.
“I think we need to do what we are doing and maybe up it a notch. We have been speaking about peaking at the right time. We haven’t played our absolute best, but we’re getting close. If we can get that twitch in the finals, hopefully, there are good things to come.” he said
The champion cricketer expressed his satisfaction with his batting performance. He also stated that he is preparing for upcoming battles by putting in long hours in training sessions. As they seek their first championship, the franchise will rely on the seasoned veteran to provide fireworks with the bat.
“I’m feeling good, haven’t had a lot of opportunities so far. I’m hitting the ball well. Had a bit of a slow start today. Thought they bowled well to me on a deck that wasn’t easy to bat on, but I’m striking them well. I’m working hard at the nets and am ready to come for the next matches.” he said
Despite his retirement from international cricket, the dashing batter is expected to be a big draw in the IPL 2021. The current season, on the other hand, has been a mixed bag for him.
In 14 outings thus far this season, the right-hander has accumulated 302 runs. In the first part of the season, he thrilled onlookers with blazing knocks, but in the UAE leg, he has failed to get going.
