Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is ready to step in grounds if the organizers hold the Indian Premier League (IPL) no matter at what time as revealed by Mark Hesson.
Mark Hesson, an ex-coach of New Zealand Cricket Team, has recently become the director of RCB’s Cricket Operations. He thinks that his side is all set to play IPL whenever it takes place.
We’re still really hopeful: Mike Hesson
Where the cricketing activities are paused amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, there is no camping for practicing for RCB as well. However, IPL, at first, was to be commenced by 29th march. Due to the lockdown, it moved ahead to 15th April and then to a further window of April-March. With a later extension in lockdown, the tournament got delayed further until any official vote from the authorities indefinitely.
“We were obviously a week away from coming into camp, like everybody else, feeling well advanced in terms of our planning. Quite rightfully, everything’s been put on hold and everybody is going about their work,” Hesson was quoted as saying in Star Sports’ Show Cricket Connected.
RCB is ready whenever IPL happens: Mike Hesson
“There are obviously other priorities at the moment that people are focussing on. We’re still really hopeful that things will evolve and there will be an IPL this year and if it happens, then I can assure you that RCB will be ready,” he added.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) having Virat Kohli as its skipper has never managed to win the finals of the cash-rich league. It seems like Virat’s captaincy is getting drub because the same happens when he captains the team on an international level.
