Royal Challengers Bangalore have pulled out massive win vs Mumbai Indians in the last game where they won by 54 runs.
In a set up like the Indian Premier League (IPL) where each team has many young and uncapped players who look up to the stars to model their game on, an aggressive player like Kohli makes a huge impact.
That is the reason why the Royal Challengers Bangalore want Kohli to continue to be aggressive, says former South Africa and RCB pacer Dale Steyn.
Speaking exclusively on Star Sports’ live feed of select dugout, Steyn said, “” think the guys prefer to see him be more aggressive, it seems to get him to play a bit more fluently. It kind of sparks the younger players too, a lot of the younger guys have massive respect for Virat, and they admire him so much that they kind of follow in his direction.
“When he’s fighting fire with fire and nobody’s doing it for India, you can hear all the quicks, when they were playing against England recently, how they were talking about following their captain and they wanting to play fighting fire with fire. So, he does lead from the front in that aspect and RCB love it. He’s kind of built that thought around RCB now. It’s the kind of culture that they have got in that dressing room.”
RCB are at the third spot in the points table with six wins off their 10 games so far in this tournament.
Kohli will no longer be the RCB skipper after this IPL to overcome his workload as a captain.
