Royal Challengers Bangalore superstars Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers had made the fans extremely excited with their conversation on Twitter on Monday. It all began when Kohli posted a video of himself running on the treadmill and De Villiers praised it. The conversation came to an end when de Villiers challenged Kohli for a race.

“Loving the form @imVkohli.. I’m all packed to join the team,” wrote De Villiers after Kohli posted the video. The India skipper then tried to take a cheeky dig at his teammate who has retired from international cricket by writing: “Hope you’re still fast between the wickets”. Not the one to back down, De Villiers replied by throwing a challenge at Kohli as he wrote: “Let’s race tomorrow to find out”

Later, Devdutt Padikkal had also joined the conversation by expressing his desire to train with his senior IPL teammates. Unsurprisingly, the fans expressed their excitement over the conversation as they asked the RCB stars to lock horns against each other in a race. Well, Kohli and De Villiers did not make the fans wait for long as they took part in the race although with a twist.

Kohli, on Tuesday, took to Twitter to post another video in which he, De Villiers as well as Padikkal could be seen running. The tweet also made things crystal clear regarding the conversation between the RCB batsmen on Monday. The conversation was a part of the promotion for Puma Cricket, RCB’s official team kit partner.

“One of us wins, all of us win. Am I right? Hello, @RCBTweets’s newest and fastest teammate @pumacricket,” wrote Virat Kohli.

Here is the tweet from the RCB skipper

RCB eye maiden IPL title

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers will have their task cut out when IPL 2021 gets underway next month. The 14th edition of the tournament is scheduled to start on April 9 with a clash between RCB and defending champions Mumbai Indians. RCB will be desperate to end their long wait for their first-ever IPL title this year.

RCB are one of the only three teams who are playing in the IPL from the very first season but are yet to win the title. In 13 seasons so far, they made it to the final thrice and ended up on the wrong side of the result on all the occasions. The onus will be on Kohli and De Villiers once again to guide their team to the title.
