Kohli has reiterated that he would stay committed to the franchise till his IPL retirement.

“Carrying that attitude on his sleeves, he has been different from other captains we had in the Indian cricket team. He is very aggressive, he is super involved in everything Indranil.”
Indranil says that “I wasn’t surprised because of the amount of pressure that was there, but I expected that Virat would win at least something before calling it quits.”
Indranil adds, “Mumbai, somewhere lost the spot because they didn’t have their main players Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya. CSK has proven again and again to be a champion team over the years.”
On the second day clash between RCB Vs KKR, Indranil says that according to him it’s going to be RCB’s day.
“Between RCB and KKR, RCB has been in good mental space. Their players are in good shape. They have good bowlers, they invested a lot on batting earlier, they are going to miss Washington Sundar for sure,” Indranil added.
