Kohli is currently enjoying his break as the Indian side took on Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy. He’ll, however, want to lead his side Royal Challengers Bengaluru to an elusive IPL victory this time around with the franchise being one of the few alongside Delhi Dardevils and Kings XI Punjab to have not lifted the silverware ever.

Kohli has been part of the RCB squad since 2008 and had hit a purple patch in 2016 when he scored a staggering 973 runs in the tournament. Overall, in 149 IPL matches so far, Kohli has scored 4418 runs at an average of 37.44 and a strike rate of 129.82.
