Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, and India’s hearthrob batsman Virat Kohli made a spectacular comeback into the Indian Premier League. The Bengaluru crowd went berzerk as Virat Kohli walked out to bat with big West Indian Chris Gayle. Against the Mumbai Indians, Kohli smashed a 47-ball 62, which included 5 boundaries and 2 huge sixes.
Kohli’s was a much-needed comeback into the RCB side, as the team hasn’t had a great start to this edition of the IPL. The Royal Challengers Bangalore currently find themselves in the bottom half of the table, and Kohli’s return to the team will be a massive boost for them.
Following an injury in the third Test of the India-Australia series, Virat Kohli was sidelined for the fourth and final Test match in Dharamshala. He also missed the first few matches of the IPL as he was still recuperating from his shoulder injury.
Although Kohli’s knock, along with Samuel Badree’s fantastic spell, were in vain, the RCB skipper looked comfortable after the game. Virat Kohli took to Instagram to post a picture of him resting after his brilliant display of batting. The muscles would surely be aching following his stay at the crease as Kohli took to the field after a month-long absence.
Kohli’s Instagram post read: “An off day and watching the ipl games is always a good feeling. Recovering from soreness of playing after a month.”

The Royal Challengers Bangalore’s charm was back, and Kohli immediately found his rhythm at the opening slot. On a tough Bengaluru wicket, Kohli top scored for his side and provided a steady start to the RCB innings.
Quite certainly, there were many who were pleased to see Kohli back onto the cricket field and striking the ball cleanly. His form will be of paramount importance in India’s Champions Trophy defence. With Rohit Sharma having a miserable run with the bat, the onus will be on Virat Kohli to rack up big runs during the IPL in the lead-up to the Champions Trophy.
