Virat Kohli always boards the team bus first, says Cameron Green as he reveals the reason

Royal Challengers Bengaluru star Cameron Green has revealed the reason why Virat Kohli is always the first to board the team bus. The Australian all-rounder is plying his trade with the Bengaluru-based team for the first time this season.

Last year, he made his IPL debut and represented five-time champions Mumbai Indians. While Green didn’t really hit the ground running in IPL, he managed to finish the season on a high. In 16 matches, he scored 452 runs at an average of 50, including one century and two half-centuries.

He also picked up six wickets to help MI qualify for the playoffs. MI, however, decided to transfer him to RCB to free up funds for Hardik Pandya’s sensational comeback. For RCB so far, Green has scored 111 runs and picked up six wickets.

Virat Kohli, the ‘good boy’ of the RCB team:

Cameron Green recently attended an event where he revealed that Virat Kohli boards the team bus before anyone else. The Australian all-rounder made it clear that this is not a superstitious practice, but RCB players prefer to board the bus only when things have calmed down after Virat Kohli’s fans’ reception.

Green was asked to name the “good guy” of the RCB team and chose Kohli, saying: “Probably Virat, to be fair, I think it’s good for him to get on the bus, the whole crowd can go crazy and then everyone calms down and we just walk down calmly.”

Will Jacks, who scored a sensational 41-ball century against the Gujarat Titans in the last game, also attended the event. The English all-rounder also spoke about the love and support that RCB receives across the country. Jacks also revealed that players hear RCB and Kohli chants wherever they go.

“I think I’m stuck on what counts as it seems like every match is a home match. It’s amazing, you see at least half of the RCB jerseys in the crowd. It’s an amazing feeling, obviously they are always singing. Kohli sings everywhere and RCB chants.

“You don’t feel under pressure, like you’re out of the way and you feel like there’s something out there. You always feel like you have support and if you do well, they’ll cheer you on.” Jacks said.

RCB have revived their slim playoff chances by winning their last two games and will look for another win when they take on Gujarat Titans on Saturday (May 4).
