Fans of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are eager to see captain Virat Kohli back in action. There is good news for them, as Kohli has announced that he will be back on field. Kohli posted a video of himself lifting weights, which clearly reveals that he has overcome his problems of his shoulder. He added that he will be back from April 14, which means he will be playing in RCB’s home match against Mumbai Indians (MI) at their home ground — the MA Chinnaswamy Stadium at Bangalore. Kohli has so far missed 3 matches in IPL 10. Kohli had injured his shoulder during India’s third Test against Australia at Ranchi. He even missed the fourth Test at Pune, where Ajinkya Rahane had stepped in to lead India for the first time in his career.

RCB has looked colourless so far in the tournament in the absence of Kohli, though the likes of Kedar Jadhav, Pawan Negi, Yuzvendra Chahal, AB de Villiers and Stuart Binny shone from time to time. De Villiers, too, was injured and missed the first two matches due to that but announced his comeback in the third match, hitting a 46-ball 89 but for a losing cause. With Kohli back in the side, RCB will find a lot of strength and will become a threat to the opponent bowlers. Here is the video:
RCB have played 3 matches in IPL 2017, winning only 1 so far, which increases pressure on the team to get back to winning terms. Kohli will have to inspire the team with his performance.
