Bengaluru: Despite his injury, Virat Kohli has joined Indian Premier League side Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday evening, ahead of the 10th season of the T20 cricket competition, which gets underway this month.
Coming off the back of a 13-Test long home season (in which the India skipper played 12 matches), Kohli has shown his eagerness to get back to action as soon as possible.
RCB posted a video on Instagram, where Kohli and star West Indies batsman Chris Gayle have a bit of a reunion in Bengaluru.
However, Kohli is still recovering from his shoulder injury, and will not be available to play for RCB as of yet, confirmed the franchise captain on a video he posted on Twitter.
RCB’s star South African batsman AB de Villiers has also joined the Bengaluru-based franchise, ahead of IPL 2017.
