Royal Challengers Banglore had a horrible last season which saw them losing games in a row. They tried everything they could do to better their team’s performance but nothing went with Virat Kohli-led team’s favour. As a result, RCB once again missed playoff berth. For the new season, they changed every member from the coaching staff to start afresh. Meanwhile, Herschelle Gibbs expressed his desire to coach Virat Kohli-RCB led side.
Virat Kohli scored a brilliant half-century as India won the match by seven wickets. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were off to a flying start before Andile Phehlukwayo dismissed Rohit for 12. However, the skipper made sure to stand in the crease till the end to make things fall in place for India.
Herschelle Gibbs wants to work with Virat Kohli in IPL:
During the course, Virat Kohli displayed a few top-class strokes to yield runs for his side. One of them, a flick shot for the four has attracted Gibbs, who immediately tweeted hailing Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, one of the fans asked whether he is looking for any role in Royal Challenger Bangalore team for IPL 2020.
In reply, Herschelle Gibbs quoted that he not looking for a head coach any more, as he tweeted during IPL 2019 but expressed his interest to become the batting coach of the team.
Earlier, before the 2019 season, RCB had sacked the former coach Daniel Vettori and appointed Gary Kirsten as the head coach for the 2019 IPL edition. But even the former India coach, who played a big role in their World Cup 2011 victory, couldn’t do any wonders for them. Eventually, he was sacked after IPL 2019.
However, the roles in the Royal Challengers Bangalore coaching panel is already assigned to various professionals. Simon Katich will be coaching the side under the watchful eyes of Mike Hesson, who is the director of the team.
