After Royal Challengers Bangalore registered their first win in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League, the stand-in captain Shane Watson hinted that the regular skipper Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers would be back in action in the next match.

During a post-match conversation with former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, Watson gave an update on Kohli and De Villiers’ fitness.

Manjrekar to Watson: What’s the news on the fitness of your star players ?

Watson: They are back in the next game.

Manjrekar: If that was a reliable source?

Watson: No (Laughs).

WATCH:

RCB are playing without captain Kohli, ruled out because of a shoulder injury, and AB de Villiers, who also missed the first two games due to a back problem.
