My batting position at top will give right balance to the squad : Virat Kohli. Ahead of the opening game of the 14th Indian Premier League (IPL) against defending champions Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli feels that hitting the top will provide the right balance for the team.
Before the start of the tournament, Kohli had said he would open an RCB innings. He opened up for India in the last T20I against England and played 80 unbeaten runs in 52 balls at Narendra Modi Stadium.

Kohli said that the experience was very important in terms of this IPL, he said that he knew that he was organized with my game at the top of the order and now let’s build a balance in the team.
Commenting on his decision to speak to AB de Villiers as he went through the negative phase, Kohli said: “It’s amazing when you’ve played for so long, you can get into a place where you feel like you can’t even score a goal.” There is a lack of clarity in your mind and there are too many thoughts surrounding it. It’s all external factors you think about and that’s what creates a lot of confusion.
“So I thought I’d take another idea because I’ve seen ABD play, all the innings have the same power and the same interest. He’s never addicted to scoring points and always thinking about the state of the team. I asked him when in doubt, what do you do? football. “
Kohli also added that it is not easy to keep up with form in such a long career and added that he takes one ball at a time.

We have played four finals, we have played two or three semifinals as well. very much in all the competitions.
