Sitting pretty with a place in the Indian Premier League final already secured, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are awaiting their opponents for Sunday's clash in Bengaluru. And it looks like they are loving the wait! Team members Virat Kohli, Mandeep Singh and Chris Gayle are spending the additional day they have between matches by practising a few dance moves. It looks like captain Kohli and Universe Boss Gayle were all given lessons on how to do the bhangra by teammate Mandeep.
Singh posted a video on his Facebook page on Wednesday that showed glimpses of how Kohli and Gayle unwound themselves the Punjabi way before they began their preparations for the big final on Sunday.
Kudos to Mandeep Singh for being the only cricketer to make Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle dance to his tunes this summer. The best of the bowlers have tried and failed quite miserably recently. But, Virat Kohli seems as comfortable on the dance floor as on the cricket pitch, having faring quite well in trying to match Mandeep Singh move to move.
After coming out trumps in a series of must-win games, RCB have earned themselves some precious time to recharge their batteries before returning to the cricket pitch on Sunday. This will be a great sight for the RCB fans to see their team in high spirits before the big final.
Chris Gayle, who is embroiled in a sexism row after an interview to a female journalist of the British newspaper, The Times, could be in trouble after IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla looking to take the matter to BCCI and RCB team management. However, that seems to worry Gayle very little as he continues to be his perky self.
RCB have never won the IPL before and have a golden opportunity to put that right in Sunday's final. If they are able to pull that off, one can just wonder what the celebrations will be like in the RCB camp. Going by such a spirited practice session though, we are betting they might go the Punjabi way!
