No one can break our friendship, said Kohli (Courtesy by BCCI)
- Apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, Royal Challengers Bangalore have had a disappointing IPL 2019
- In a funny video, RCB insider 'Mr. Nags' interviewed Kohli about his camaraderie with De Villiers
- Kohli asserted that his bond with AB is on a different level altogether
After another disappointing season of the IPL where they find themselves out of contention for the playoffs, Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore are now looking to end the season on a high against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. While Kohli and AB de Villiers, the two stalwarts at RCB did everything they could to salvage RCB's campaign this year, the team as a whole failed to produce the desired results. But it hasn't dented the spirits of the players, just not yet!
The camaraderies between Virat and AB is well known and since they came together at RCB 8 years ago, they have been the most prolific batting pair at the franchise. But since Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was bought by RCB at last year's auction, there also have been reports of Kohli and Stoinis sharing a strong friendship.
In this context when RCB insider and video-jockey 'Mr. Nags' asked whether Marcus Stoinis' arrival at RCB has dented his brotherhood with AB, Kohli quipped that the bond between him and AB was as strong like 'Ram-Lakhan'.
During a fun chat, Mr. Nags joked by saying: "After Stoinis has come, there seems to be a big break in this relationship..."
Kohli cut him short by saying: "AB and I are like Ram-Lakhan. We are brothers. No one can break our friendship. Stoinis is another great guy and a great human being but AB and I are on a different dimension. It's like we connect on a different level. You can't understand that."
Earlier, Virat and AB had posted a heartfelt message directed towards their fans for supporting them throughout a disappointing IPL 2019.
"This has to be a special message for you all because even after three hours of a game being washed out, you still sit in the stadium and give us the loudest cheer when we walk out to bat. It's special and it's always going to be special in our hearts and minds. Thank you for being the best fans that you are," Virat Kohli said.
RCB face Sunrisers Hyderabad at their home ground in Bengaluru tonight and will look to sign off with a win.
