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).
