Bengaluru: Royal Challengers Bangalore have started their IPL campaign in predictable style losing all their games so far in the tournament. Many people have raised questions over team’s batting, bowling, fielding, coaching, and captaincy while praising the other aspects of their game. However, team captain Virat Kohli is not letting the poor run affect his mindset and is still very positive about this season.

Speaking to the media after the launch of a new app, the RCB captain said, “Yes we haven’t been winning the matches but we still feel victorious. It is all about your mental state and how you feel because at the end of the day, victory is a state of mind. As long as we have that winning feeling, we can’t feel bad about losing some matches.”

“In the first few years, I used to struggle mentally with RCB losing a few games but then I knew I had to find a way to stop it demoralizing me. Then I heard a politician say that poverty is a state of mind and it was like a eureka moment for me. I realized that similarly, victory can be a state of mind. We have a good healthy squad, we have food on the table, our boss is away in London, life is pretty good so we are winners at the end of the day”, Kohli added.

When asked if he expects a turnaround in the on field results for his team during the latter half of the season, Virat Kohli said, “You have been watching us for 10 years, you should know the answer by now.”

Meanwhile, Vijay Mallya has alleged that he is being tortured in London by Indian authorities who have put up a giant screen outside his home where they show RCB matches.
