But now he has been sidelined as Virat Kohli joined RCB ahead of IPL 2024. Speculations were there because he recently pulled out of the Test series against England in India due to personal reasons. His wife gave birth to his second child in London, so he opted not to participate.

However, Virat Kohli arrived in India just a few days ago and later he also arrived in Bengaluru. When he arrived in his franchise’s hometown, he made sure to show up for the team at practice the next morning.

Virat was seen doing the catching practice and fielding drill at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. In the video that has gone viral on the internet, he can be seen wearing the RCB attire and training.
