With less than 40 days to go, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is already buzzing. The fans and franchises are excited as the wait has been too long this year due to the pandemic. The witty social media wars between the fan-bases have already begun and none other than Virat Kohli is in the discussion this time around. Rajasthan Royals (RR) have expressed interest in having the India skipper in their team but have one hilarious condition.

Kohli has played only for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ever since the inception of the IPL. He has been leading the side since 2013 but is yet to win the title. He, as a batsman, has registered a plethora of records. However, as a skipper, many feel he is lagging a bit. Despite having a power packed team, it is baffling to see a team like RCB not winning the IPL even once.

Coming back to the ongoing social media tussle, it all started with one of the fans editing a picture and making it look like Virat Kohli is playing for the Royals. The franchise was delighted to see it but came up with a hilarious response to it. The Royals’ Twitter handle stated that if the RCB Insider Mr Nags comes along with Kohli, then only they will welcome the team’s skipper.

Mr Nags is the person who does hilarious shows and also gives funny inside news of the franchise during the T20 extravaganza to keep the fans entertained.

Here’s the Royals’s tweet:

IPL 2020 set to start on September 19

Meanwhile, the 13th edition of the IPL is set to commence on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Due to the prevailing pandemic situation, the BCCI has decided to shift the tournament outside India and has released the SOPs to follow for the players in the country. The T20 extravaganza will be played until November 10 while the teams are expected to leave for UAE on August 20.
