Virat Kohli’s love for football is not hidden from anyone in this world. The RCB Captain on various occasions has often grabbed his football boots & got ready for a football match.
Just a couple of days back RCB had shared a picture of Kohli playing football match with his teammates captioning it as, “We have heard that Messi was looking for some new teammates”. On Tuesday, RCB Twitter handle posted a video of the team’s stars playing a “modified football” match which saw Kohli playing against AB De Villiers.
“Kicking off the IPL season with a football match has been a tradition at RCB for many years. It was all smiles in the camp when AB’s Cool Cats took on Virat’s Hot Dogs,” RCB captioned the video. In the video RCB’s Strength & Conditioning Coach Shanker Basu reveals that playing football on the inaugural session when the full squad comes out together is an RCB tradition.
Basu further said that the game was “modified match” played without any goalkeeper. However the RCB Coach made his dislike for cricketers playing football very clear. “Let me put on record, I hate football for cricketers. It’s highly injurious, I can only see risk and don’t see any reward,” said Basu.
RCB will be looking forward to conquer this year’s IPL trophy. They have finished as runners-up twice but have never been able to get their hands on the trophy. Kohli & his teammates have an eye on the maiden IPL title & will give their best to win the much desired IPL trophy. RCB will face SunRisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
