Two defeats and a victory in their three matches so far and Royal Challengers Bangalore clearly are missing the services of their talismanic skipper Virat Kohli.
Virat injured his shoulder while fielding in the Ranchi Test against Australia in March and chose to remain on the sidelines till he had fully recovered. However, looks like his time on the bench in now officially over after he instagrammed a video of himself lifting weights.
More important though was the caption next to it. "Can't wait to get back onto the field. Almost there now. 14th April”
14 April is when RCB take on Mumbai Indians at home and it also looks set to be Virat’s debut game of the season.
