The 2023 edition of the IPL begins on Friday, with defending champions Gujarat Titans taking on four-time winners Chennai Super Kings in Ahmedabad.
RCB will begin its IPL 2023 campaign with a match against Mumbai Indians at their home ground, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on April 2.
The official RCB Twitter handle has shared some visuals of Kohli punching and eye-pleasing puffy readers in “Do Not Disturb” mode.
“Fueled by passion, unrivaled commitment and with absolute focus, the GOAT is preparing for #IPL2023. Kohli in Do Not Disturb mode! #PlayBold #[email protected],” RCB tweeted along with the visuals.
Having shown a rich vein of form in India’s colors since last year’s Asian Cup, after a long, lean run with the willow, Virat will be eager to put behind his horrific 2022 IPL season with the bat. In 16 games, he scored just 341 carries at an average of 22.73, with only two half-centuries and the best score of 73.
He is the top scorer in IPL history, having scored 6,624 points in 223 games with an average of 36.20. He has five centuries and 44 fifties under his belt, with a best score of 113.
Last year, RCB qualified for the playoffs and lost to Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 by seven wickets.
