So, the aim was to remain in rhythm and try to put not too much effort and increase the workload slowly. Was excited for joining the RCB family once again. Worked on improving myself and rehabilitation in the 14-day quarantine. Practice went good, all the bowlers in the camp were excited.”

In the intense training session, the main focus of the RCB team was on direct hits. “Direct hitting was one aspect we looked at and that is where we gave a lot of focus on whether the players are getting into good position because everything starts with a good base. Whether their throwing technique was right or not and one critical factor is the length of the throw. High catching was not possible today because of the light but that is something we will look to do a lot when we get the opportunity to practice at the ICC facility. The first two sessions are always about getting back into the groove. It will be a gradual buildup,” Bangar told the RCB official website.
