Virat Kohli feels that the RCB trio of Mohammed Siraj , Washington Sundar and Navdeep Saini after their great experiences of test cricket in Australia and beyond will raise the level of their performances in IPL.
It may be mentioned that Mohammed Siraj had a great test series in Australia after his debut at MCG . He took 13 wickets in the series in 3 tests and helped injury ravaged India to win an epic series.
Due to injuries to a large number of first XI players, Washington Sundar was played in the final test at Gabba and he responded with innings salvaging 62 in 1st innings and a cameo of 22 in India’s epic series winning run chase at the Gabba . Sundar further performed well in the England test series at home
Navdeep Saini made his debut at SCG and bowled reasonably well before getting an injury niggle. He was at the crease with Rishabh Pant in India’s epic win at the Gabba.
Hence expectations are high as they shape up to play in IPL 2021 . The trio will have a positive feeling coming into the IPL as Kohli has illustrated below .
“From my experience I can vouch that when you do well for your national team, it is always an exciting time to come into IPL. That is something that I gained as a youngster… bring that confidence that I gained at the international level back into the IPL set-up. Watching guys like Siraj, Washy and Saini come into their own—you want these guys to show their personality and confidence on the field for RCB as well. That way we can pull together stronger as a team. Very exciting that our youngsters have become confident because of their (international) experience; now the oppositions know that these are the guys who can make an impact in any situation, which obviously is a great sign for us,” said Kohli,
