Former Royal Challengers’ Bangalore (RCB) men’s skipper Virat Kohli was seen giving a motivational speech to the women’s team after Smriti Mandhana and his women started the Women’s Premier League (WPL) with five consecutive losses. The 34-year-old Kohli came to the RCB women’s dressing room prior to the match against the UP Warriorz on Wednesday, March 15 at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.

RCB women’s team made a poor start and stared at an early elimination. Kohli said that despite their failure to win an Indian Premier League (IPL) title, the RCB men’s team takes the field every season with the same zeal and belief.

In the video shared by RCB, Virat Kohli was heard saying, “I have been playing IPL for 15 years and I haven’t won it yet, but that doesn’t stop me from being excited everywhere. That’s all I can do. That’s the effort I can put, every game, every tournament that I play. If we win, great, if we don’t, I’m not going to go to my grave, thinking that only if I had won the IPL, I would have been a happy man dying. It doesn’t happen like that.”

Virat Kohli further stated, “So always think about the opportunity you had rather than how bad it is right now. There’s always a flip side to it and could always be worse than this. And the fact that we haven’t won the IPL, I still feel we have the best fans in the world, only because we are always committed in every game we played for RCB and that has been the most special for our fans.”

Elaborating it further, Virat Kohli said, “Now when they see RCB, the smile on their faces tells me that the belief in our commitment for the team is all we could have given them. There is no guarantee that we can give fans a cup every year, but there’s a guarantee that we give our 110 percent. And that’s all you can strive to do.”

The pep talk did wonders for the Challengers, who beat Alyssa Healy’s Warriorz by a 5-wicket margin. After bowling the opposition out for 135, they chased down the target with 12 balls to spare. Kanika Ahuja became the Player of the Match after she scored 46 runs off 30 balls with the help of eight fours and one six.
