Cricketers usually like to take care of their own gear and Virat Kohli is no different. The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper takes it upon himself to repair his own bats, whenever he can.
Kohli posted a video on his social media accounts in which he can be seen cutting a part of his bat’s handle to improve its balance.
“It’s the small details that matter. For me even couple of centimeters are crucial for the balance of a bat. I LOVE taking care of my bats,” Kohli wrote on his post.
Impressed with Kohli’s bat-repairing skills, Mumbai Indians star Hardik Pandya also requested for his assistance with his own bats.
The all-rounder replied on Kohli’s post, asking if he could send over his bats to him for repairs. “Sending my few bats to you,” Pandya responded.
The players are currently preparing hard for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates. The 53-day 8-team tournament will be held between September 19 and November 10.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians will kick-off IPL 2020 by hosting 2019’s runner-up Chennai Super Kings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore will open their campaign against 2016 champions Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on September 21.
IPL 2020 was originally scheduled to be held from March 29 but it had to be postponed by almost 6 months due to the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
