Sidhartha Mallya is thoroughly enjoying his maiden stint as team director of Indian Premier League team, Royal Challengers Bangalore. Son of liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who owns the Bangalore-based team, Sidhartha has already made some significant decisions for the franchise, ranging from choosing the right mix of players at the auction to selecting the 'perfect' captain in Virat Kohli when regular skipper Daniel Vettori returned to New Zealand to recharge his batteries. The team are on top of IPL-IV with 19 points from their 14 league matches.

They play Qualifier No 1 against Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium today.

The Mallya scion spoke to MiD DAY about being the 'prince' of good times and more.

What was RCB's target at the start of the season, considering this is a new-look team?

Right from the start, our target was to win the Indian Premier League-IV and that's why we went into the auction with a well thought out plan and bought exactly the kind of players who would help us achieve our goal. We were very clear that we are not here to make up the numbers.
