It is to be noted that the RCB Women suffered five consecutive defeats in the ongoing Women’s Premier League. Hoping for a turn in their fortune, Kohli addressed the Smirti Mandhana-led side, sharing some words of inspiration and motivation with the fellow cricketers.
“I have been playing IPL for 15 years, I haven’t won yet but that doesn’t stop me. That’s the effort I can put in. Always think about the opportunity rather than how bad it is now,” Virat Kohli said.
“We never lost six games in a row in our life and we played 15 years of international cricket almost together at the same stage. So, unexpected things can happen, and unfortunate things can happen but the reason, why I am here, is there is still hope there is still one percent chance and sometimes that chance is good enough but what matters is what you guys think about that one percent,” he added further.
