The Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise also tweeted a video in which the players were seen urging each other to support the ‘Go Green’ initiative by taking care of the environment.
“Turn off the lights and taps when not in use. We must ensure waste management and reduce the use of plastic. We should pick up plastic bottles wherever we go. All of these small little things if a person plays along can really go a long way to help our environment,” De Villiers said in the video.
Meanwhile, RCB captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against CSK in Dubai. “We will bat first. It’s pretty dry, rough. It’s interesting when the weather was hot the pitches weren’t playing well. The temperatures have dropped now but it’s slowing down. Moeen Ali replaces Isuru Udana as a spinner all-rounder, just one change. This green gesture is special for RCB, have quite a few good memories in this jersey,” Kohli said at the toss.
