For the first time after the cancellation of the fifth Test, Kohli said on the RCB website that, the cancellation of the Test match certainly hurts but due to Corona, something things can happen suddenly. Unfortunately, the Test got canceled and we reached here early. Things are very uncertain due to the Corona virus, we have to accept it. Kohli said that anything can happen in such a situation. But I hope we have been able to create a safe environment here and have a good IPL.
