AB de Villiers, Kohli’s IPL teammate, responded to RCB skipper’s video on the micro-blogging site, praising his form going ahead into the tournament. De Villiers, one of the mainstays in RCB batting line-up, also shared his picture all geared up to join the squad. “Loving the form @imVkohli .. I’m all packed to join the team,” he wrote, replying to Kohli’s tweet.
RCB have never won the IPL despite boasting some of the most explosive players in their line-up over the years. Chasing the elusive title, RCB once again spent big in the annual auction, held in February, including the likes of Kyle Jamieson (Rs 15 crore), Glenn Maxwell (Rs 14.25 crore), Daniel Christian (Rs 4.80 crore), along with some promising young talents in their roster.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who reached the IPL playoffs last year, will start their campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians in Chennai on April 9.
