Virat Kohli's pep talk for RCB women comes ahead of first WPL win
Mumbai/IBNS: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) maiden win in the first edition of Women's Premier League (WPL) came with a wonder just after cricket icon Virat Kohli's pep talk for the team.
Kohli, who is himself associated with RCB men's team for 15 years, shared with the women players his experience of playing the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The former RCB skipper said, "I've been playing IPL for 15 years and I haven't won it yet. But that doesn't stop me from being excited every year. That's all I can do. That's the effort I can put (in)."
"Always think about the opportunity you have rather than how bad it is right now. There's always a flip side to it. It could always be worse than this... There's no guarantee of giving the fans a cup every year but there's a guarantee of giving your 110 percent. That's all you all can strive to do," he added.

King came. He spoke. He inspired. He’d be proud watching the girls play the way they did last night. Watch @imVkohli's pre-match chat in the team room on Bold Diaries.#PlayBold #ನಮ್ಮRCB #WPL2023 pic.twitter.com/fz1rxZnID2
