IPL 2020: Virat Kohli and co participate in 'The Yorker Challenge'. Here's what happened
Royal Challengers Bangalore would eye their maiden IPL title in their 13th season. Virat Kohli has been leading the side since 2013, under whom, the side has reached the playoffs just once.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are one of the most star-studded and decorated sides in the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, it is very unfortunate for them to have never won the title. Nonetheless, it is the one side that never fails to entertain the fans with their mesmerising gameplay.
As the team continues to train in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ahead of the fresh new season, which gets underway from Saturday, the Virat Kohli-led men were engaged in a funny bowling challenge. In what is assumed to be the brain-child of their bowling coach, Adam Griffith, the team was involved in 'The Yorker Challenge'. It was done so to check the precision of the bowlers, following two weeks of rigorous training.
The challenge involved setting up the wicket area with some equipment, as the bowlers were asked to hit them, for which they would be earning points. The challenge included mostly the bowlers, while skipper Kohli's commitment, passion and excitement stole the show. The challenge also involved somewhat of friendly banters being exchanged between the teammates, along with minor sledging.
