The 14th edition of Indian Premier League is all set to start from April 9. In the tournament opener, RCB will take on the defending champions Mumbai Indians in MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.

Due to spike in COVID positive cases, at least the initial phase of the tournament will be played behind closed door, much like the way it was carried out last year in UAE.

RCB skipper Virat Kohli would be happy with the way his team performed last season. The franchise has retained the same core of players and has added some exciting youngsters who might outperform veterans this season.
