Bangalore franchise had a forgettable start to the ongoing Women’s T20 League as they suffered five consecutive defeats. So, it was a do-or-die match for them when they took on UP in the tournament on 15 March 2023. Fans were also hoping to see them win for the first time in the tournament.

Now, a video has gone viral where Virat Kohli was seen giving a pep-talk to the player of the Women’s team before the game against UP. He said: “I’ve been playing Indian T20 League for 15 years. And I haven’t won it yet. But that doesn’t stop me from being excited every year. That’s all I can do.” 

Here is the shared video:

Bangalore registered a five-wicket win over UP in the Women’s T20 League

Kohli further added: “That’s the effort I can put into every game and every tournament that I play. If we win, great. If we don’t, then I am not going to go to my grave thinking that if only I had won an Indian T20 League, I would be a happy man. It doesn’t happen like that. So always think about the opportunity that you have rather than how bad it is right now. There is always a flip side to it, and it could always be worse than this.” 

“And the fact that we haven’t won the Indian T20 League, but I still feel that we have the best fans in the world. Only because we were always committed to every game that we played for Bangalore. That has been the most special thing for our fans. There’s no guarantee of giving you a cup every year, but there’s a guarantee of giving your 110% every year, and that’s all you can strive to do,” the former skipper of the men’s team of the Bangalore franchise said. Meanwhile, Bangalore managed to win their first match against UP also. They defeated the UP franchise by five wickets.
