Virat Kohli makes BIG REVELATION on RCB career


IPL 2022: Virat Kohli makes BIG REVELATION – Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli is the only player in the IPL to play for a single franchise.

He made a big revelation that he wanted to go to the auction but decided against it. Follow IPL 2022 Live Updates on InsideSport.IN.

“To be very honest, I have thought about it and have been approached by others to come into the auction somehow. But then I thought about it. There would have been many great individuals who have won trophies but no one addresses you like that. Nobody addresses you as IPL champion or World Cup champion,” Virat Kohli said.

“For me the loyalty with RCB is far greater than someone saying ‘finally you have won IPL trophy with XYZ’. You will feel great for five minutes and then you will be miserable with some other issue,” Virat Kohli added.

Virat Kohli has played 207 matches for RCB, scoring 6,283 runs at an average of 37.39. He has scored five centuries and 42 half-centuries. Kohli said that he feels at home at RCB and will continue to play for RCB.

“Not winning the IPL is not the end of the world for me. RCB have given me the opportunity in the first three years and believed in me. That is the most special for me,” he said.

“The reason I say that I will play for RCB till my last day is because I cannot see myself play in any other environment. The city has a very different feel. You feel that when you arrive at the airport and drive to the hotel. It just feels home,” Kohli added.
