Royal Challengers Bangalore reached the IPL final in 2016
Virat Kohli said he feels the squad is the most balanced since then
RCB will be looking to win their maiden IPL title
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) possibly had their best season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2016, when they reached the final of the tournament, only to be beaten by SunRisers Hyderabad. Captain Virat Kohli was at his very best, scoring four centuries, and he had ample support from the likes of AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle, who were in terrific form as well. However, since then the team have struggled considerably, not being able to reach the playoffs in any of the next three season. However, Kohli feels that things may be different this time around.
The India and RCB captain said that he feels the squad this year feels the most balanced since 2016, and that they are all very excited for the campaign to begin.
"It's an exciting time," Kohli said in an interview shared by RCB on Twitter.
"To be honest, that 2016 season - which we all loved to be a part of and was such a memorable season - since then, to be honest, this is the most balanced I have felt about the squad and as a system, where we are heading," Kohli said.
