It all went wrong for them last season when they finished last. <p></p> <p></p>"More than the fans I want to win the cup. I have been with Bangalore for last 10 years and we haven't crossed the final hurdle three times. I can assure you, my commitment is going to be 120 per per cent to try and achieve the goal this time," said Kohli after a training session today. <p></p> <p></p>RCB have been short on batting firepower and Kohli feels this time the team has a good bowling line-up too. <p></p> <p></p>"The batting has been strong point for RCB over the years, but I think the strengthening of bowling department has been a massive boost for us from this auction. I am very optimistic about our chances heading into this IPL," said the skipper. <p></p> <p></p>The franchise has a solid spin department comprising<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/yuzvendra-chahal/"> Yuvzendra Chahal</a>, Washington Sundar, M Ashwin, Pawan Negi and England all-rounder <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/moeen-ali/">Moeen Ali</a>.

We picked up players who could contribute to our culture and not be so worried about their personal performances," he said.
