New Delhi: Ahead of the Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman AB de Villiers has said that he will not change his game plan and the team will stick to what he has followed throughout the tournament.
RCB will take on KKR in the Eliminator on Monday and de Villiers also revealed that skipper Virat Kohli is all set to take the field for the clash in the evening. “Naturally, the intensity picks up when everything is on the line, you would think by the time we started the IPL – we put in a lot of effort, so it’s natural for the juices to start flowing a little more; the skillet remains the same. Well, my game plan won’t change much, and I think the cricket we’re trying to play won’t change much,” de Villiers said exclusively on Star Sports show Inside RCB.
“There will definitely be more to lose for everyone out there — I mean, you lose, you’re going home. You think back on all the effort you put in, you don’t want that to happen.”
“And it’s all on the line, body on the line and stuff, he (Virat Kohli) will be full of adrenaline as always. And he will make sure we are all in fifth gear once the eliminator starts,” he added. .
The winner of the Eliminator will play against Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, RCB on Monday announced that Sri Lankan cricketers Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera have been released from the team’s bio bubble.
Hasaranga and Chamira have been released to join Sri Lanka’s squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers. (ANI)
