Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli is all set ahead of the do or die encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders as he said that when one just focuses on winning, performance takes another level, And losing is no longer an option. .
RCB will take on KKR The Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday (October 11) evening. The winner of the match will take on Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 on Wednesday.
“We have a lot of confidence in our team, if the top two places (in the points table) are not there, we will have to win two more matches to reach the final, and we are fully prepared for that. You would have prepared for all that. There are kinds of possibilities, and the way I see it, qualifiers and eliminators are just words that exist to put more pressure on these matches.” Kohli said on Star Sports show ‘Inside RCB’.
“When you play cricket, you either win or you lose, so when you feel like you have two options (win or lose), that mindset can potentially turn into a negative one. It’s about executing plans and winning games. When your only option is winning and losing is not an option, your performance takes another level and I think our team is in the right place to execute our plans.” she added.
