IPL 2020: Fans ask where is Virat Kohli as RCB say ‘locked and loaded’ to fly to UAE
Bengaluru: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) left for Dubai this morning (August 20) while the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) too are ready to fly to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). However, when RCB posted pictures of their players’ kit bags packed and ready to leave, Kohli’s bags were missing. Fans were asking the franchise, ‘Where is Kohli?’
On Thursday, RCB posted four pictures on their Twitter handle. In the images, kit bags of their players were seen.
Umesh Yadav, Parthiv Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini and Shivam Dube’s bags were pictured.
Some of the fans on Twitter asked the franchise about Kohli. Earlier, the team had shared pictures and videos of the players’ arrival in Bengaluru. But, there too Kohli was not seen.
According to reports, RCB are set to leave in the last week of August. IPL 2020 will begin in the UAE on September 19 and ends on November 10.
RCB’s fans are hoping that the Bengaluru franchise breaks the title drought this time with new coaches Mike Hesson and Simon Katich taking over.
Earlier this month, Kohli shared a video on RCB and captioned it, “Loyalty above everything. Can't wait for what's to come.”
Kohli is currently in Mumbai and reports suggest that he may fly directly from there to Dubai.
