Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera might play a key function in Royal Challengers Bangalore‘s marketing campaign when the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season resumes within the United Arab Emirates, in line with captain Virat Kohli. The two Sri Lanka gamers had been added to the RCB squad following the unavailability of Australian duo Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa. Despite not having two star gamers accessible, Kohli is assured that the 2 Lanka replacements would do effectively within the UAE situations.
“Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa who were with us in the first leg for a bit, they were an integral part of the team, they made a decision not to play in the second leg for reasons which are absolutely understandable,” Kohli was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo on Saturday.
“The replacements we have got for those guys are two players who know these conditions. The conditions in subcontinent this time of the year are pretty similar,” he added.
“Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera are two guys who have played so much cricket for Sri Lanka and they understand how to play on pitches like these and their skillsets will be of huge help for us, playing in Dubai, understanding how hot and humid conditions can be and how the pitches will play out, they know everything.
“The guys coming in mix into the crew tradition and the plan of the crew very effectively. The core group can also be motivated. We have not targeted in any respect on what we have missed out on however we really feel stronger as the brand new additions have given us few different dimensions.”
RCB will play Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday in their first game since the IPL 2021 resumption.
