There is no doubt that ace Indian batter Virat Kohli is one of the most popular cricketers in the world. Through his exceptional performances in both international and domestic cricket, Kohli has garnered a major fanbase across the globe, and that recently became visible after a clip from Papua New Guinea went viral. 

As part of a YouTube vlog, the vlogger decided to walk up to some kids playing cricket on the streets of Papua New Guinea. Thereafter, after having a short chat with them, he asked the kids about their favourite cricket team and the players. Surprisingly, the kids took no time and were quick to name Team India as their most favourite team and Virat Kohli as their favourite cricketer. 

Besides, the children also revealed that they want to become like Kohli, which speaks volumes about the impact that the ace batter has had on his fans not just in India but across the globe as well.

It is worth noting that RCB have had a season to forget so far in the IPL 2024. In the four matches that the side has competed in so far, they have only managed to win one match. Currently, RCB sits in eighth place in the standings with two points in four matches, and taking on Royals could prove to be a daunting task.

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals has played three matches in the tournament so far, where they have registered three wins and are currently unbeaten. It is also interesting to note that two out of three wins for RR have come in Jaipur, and the Sanju Samson-led side will aim to keep their winning run alive.
