The Indian Premier League (IPL) season 12 begins on March 23, 2019, and the biggest festival of cricket will see the best of the international players competing in the most popular and prestigious T20 tournament in world cricket. The IPL 2019 schedule was recently released for the league stages of the tournament and the first match will see defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK), led by MS Dhoni, taking on Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Virat Kohli had recently come under fire from former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir who called him lucky to be captain despite winning no titles in his tenure. Kohli has been leading RCB since 2013 and under his leadership, the team reached the finals of the tournament in 2016, losing to eventual champions Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the last two editions have been disappointing, to say the least, and Kohli will hope to end the title drought in 2019.


Virat Kohli chills with wife Anushka and RCB teammates

With just a few days to go before the commencement of IPL 2019, Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma, along with RCB teammates are spotted taking some time off and enjoying themselves. In a video circulating on social media, Kohli can be seen trying his hand at iB Cricket’s virtual reality cricket game. Apart from Anushka Sharma, Kohli’s RCB team-mates Parthiv Patel and Umesh Yadav are also seen, among others.

Kohli can be seen with a VR headset and a sensory bat used to play the game and Anushka was reacting to Kohli’s actions.

On the morning of Friday, Virat Kohli posted a picture with the RCB squad as the team prepares for their IPL 12 opening encounter with defending champions Chennai Super Kings in Chennai. Kohli will also be looking to get into a great mindset with success in the league since he will be leading the Indian team in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.
