Former India opener Aakash Chopra expressed his thoughts on how Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) can really benefit from the Indian Premier League (IPL) taking place in the UAE this year.

Chopra had revealed how the Virat Kohli-lead side has a limited bowling attack, however, it can come good in the UAE as the grounds are bigger while also suggesting that spinners will play a big role to play in this year’s edition.

“Batting conditions would not have much of an impact. In fact, certain teams may start feeling better. RCB for example, because when the grounds are big your bowling is not exposed that much even if it is weak. RCB I think might actually do well,” Chopra had said in a video on his youtube channel.
