“Unfortunate how we ended up being here early but with COVID in place, things are very uncertain, so anything can happen at any time,” stated Kohli.
“Hopefully, we are able to maintain a good strong, secure environment here and have a quality IPL and then onto the World Cup. So now, heading into the T20 phase, I think it is going to be an exciting phase and a very important one for us at RCB and for the Indian team at the World Cup as well,” he added.
RCB will resume their IPL 2021 on September 20 in opposition to Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi.
