The RCB skipper however, did not forget to remind his teammates regarding the impending job ahead. RCB will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the ‘Eliminator’ of IPL-2020, Friday. The skipper told his mates to get into a proper mindset before the game.
“I want all of us to be in the same mindset. I promise you all that we will have more fun in this next week than we had in the last two-and-a-half months. It would be unbelievable if we can get into the right mindset, and I believe we have reached there,” Kohli said.
