He has also stated the reasons for RCB's shortcomings in winning the IPL. I know the feeling of coming back from a big break. The side had managed to reach the finals of 2009, 2011, and 2016 edition, but ended up on the losing side in the summit clash against SunRisers Hyderabad. The Royal Challengers Bangalore squad have started their training after completing the mandatory quarantine. As a result, he is looking forward to play the tournament with the boys. "India's smallest ground and the flattest wicket is in Chinnaswamy, so bowlers will be happier and you might see a better performance from bowlers like Umesh Yadav and Navdeep Saini", Gambhir said.

Kohli, who took over as captain of the Bangalore team in 2013, has said he has "never felt so calm" entering an IPL season. "It " s unbelievable how you can get back into the groove, nothing guarantees performance, but that " s the beauty of sport, you never know what to expect". "So if the balance was not there earlier, then Virat Kohli should have got more involved", Gambhir questioned. It's very exciting. Obviously, looking at the combinations there is backup where. It is always hard to judge the bowlers from Chinnaswamy's point of view.

The former South Africa skipper also said that the side has a different feel to it this year and the side has a lot of options for every department. The former South African skipper will hope for the fortunes to turn around this time. "He can be a finisher as a batsman and can also give you 4 overs and bowl at the death", Gambhir said.

Among the players named were first-fives Mo'unga and Beauden Barrett , halfback TJ Perenara and winger Sevu Reece. We listened to that. "But at the same time were talking hard to the Government about relaxing it.

"So I would want to see from RCB that even if the start is not good, they should persist with their playing XI and give them 6-7 matches. So if Virat Kohli has calmness in his mind that this is the most balanced squad, the important thing will be how they perform and how much he persists with these players".

The IPL 2020 is slated to be played from September 19-November 10 in the UAE across three venues - Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. You will be playing in Dubai and Abu Dhabi which probably have bigger grounds, wickets are not as flat as Chinnaswamy.

While the IPL gets underway on September 19, with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener, RCB will play their first match on September 21 against SunRisers Hyderabad.
