IPL 2022 RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore have provided the much-awaited update as former team captain Virat Kohli joined the camp ahead of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Posting a photo of his arrival on their social media on Monday, the team wrote, “King Kohli has arrived! That’s it. That’s the news. Follow CricsGuru.IN for more updates.

Virat Kohli, who led the franchise for the last nine editions, relinquished the captaincy from him after last year’s IPL. He will now play under the captaincy of former South African cricketer Faf du Plessis.

Faf du Plessis, who played for Chennai Super Kings until last year, was bought by RCB for Rs 7 crore during the auction. With the pressure of the captaincy no longer on his shoulders, Kohli, who is experiencing a drop in his form, will look to focus on his hitting and get his form back and contribute to the team’s success.

Earlier, Du Plessis also said that Kohli as a player is always important to the team.

“Even if he (Kohli) is not the captain, that energy that he brings to himself and to the team is very important to us. We will try to use that as best we can.”
