    Virat Kohli motivates RCB for their upcoming matches

    After their defeat to KKR, Virat Kohli spoke to his teammates in the dressing room and asked them to accept the loss.  RCB shared a video of the dressing room talk on social media.

    “We are better off accepting it immediately and being at peace with it. Not meaning that we don’t look forward to the next one, but it should give us more hunger to get on to the field again and play the cricket that we have played already in this tournament”, said the RCB skipper.

    “So, I think it’s about accepting that this kind of a game will happen at some stage. There is no reason why we should react differently to losses”, he said.

    “We have to stay pretty balanced as a team if we have to go all the way”, he further added.
