The Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday shared a short video of their big hitters AB de Villiers, Gurkeerat Mann, Shivam Dube and Chris Morris wielding their willow during a net session ahead of the IPL 2020 in the UAE.
The swashbuckling star de Villiers looked in sublime touch with the bat while team-mate Gurkeerat too is seen playing some beautiful strokes.
On Twitter, RCB wrote, “There was one common emotion in the camp – Happiness. If the first hit was all about getting back to doing what you love, this one was about getting better, and working hard to get there.”
Talking about his outing in the nets, AB de Villiers said, “It’s nice to be out in the middle. It’s an open field, so you can watch the ball travel out in the ground. It’s enjoyable, it’s a bit cooler today as well.”
RCB’s head coach Simon Katich filled in to inform on the progress during the training sessions at RCB.
“In terms of condition, there were tricky conditions today. There was grass in the wicket with a bit of seam and swing movement. These are fresh wickets and it’s quite humid. The bowlers did well but what stood out for me is that the batters applied themselves really well, number of guys going in there played proper cricket shots,” said the RCB head coach.
