New Delhi. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), captained by Virat Kohli, will start the second phase of IPL 2021 with a match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). This match will be played in Abu Dhabi on Monday, 20 September. Virat has reached UAE for the second phase of the league and he will start preparations soon. Sri Lankan leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga is also included in the 4 players who have been included in the team by RCB for the second phase.
Hasranga bowled well in both the T20 and ODI series against India in July. He took the highest number of 7 wickets in the 3 T20 series and 3 wickets in the ODI series. For this reason, Virat added Hasranga to the team as a replacement for Adam Zampa. He is very happy about it and he messaged Hasranga on WhatsApp before the match against KKR on Monday.

Looking forward to practicing with everyone: Virat
In the message sent to the players, Kohli clearly wrote that I am in touch with everyone. We talked a lot about the league last month as well. It is true that many important players of the team will not play in the second phase of IPL. But we have been able to get some good players in their place and those who have been included in the RCB squad, their skills are excellent in terms of UAE conditions. I am very excited to meet everyone and look forward to practicing with the team.
