RCB batting and fielding coach Trent Woodhill feels out-of-form West Indies opener Chris Gayle should take a cue from skipper Virat Kohli's batting to try and regain his old touch.
Trent Woodhill, RCB batting and bowling coachChris (Gayle) is hitting the ball very well in the net. He is not far away from making a big score, and hopefully it happens tomorrow. Gayle has had a fantastic record here. Gayle and somebody else can take a cue out of the knocks played by Virat and Pollard, last evening. They mastered the conditions and came out with flying colours, with their bats.
On Mandeep Singh’s inconsistency, Woodhill said he is a good player and exuded confidence. Just a matter of time before he regains form.
Trent Woodhill, RCB batting and bowling coachHe (Mandeep) is a quality player. He did really well last year for us in the lower middle order. I am hopeful he will turn the screws on. He is going to come out blazing tomorrow or against Gujarat. He is a quality player. He did well to build a partnership in Indore with AB on really tough surface. He started well in Hyderabad as well, so he will get his chance and I am sure he will grab it.
Woodhill feels the return of Kohli and De Villiers has given them a chance to rebuild their fortunes.
Trent Woodhill, RCB batting and bowling coachHaving Virat and AB back is great, and we need to capitalise on their return and build our fortunes, and build it quickly in their presence.
Woodhill said it is time for RCB to adapt quickly and put on good totals, which has not been the case in the last two matches they played.
