Virat Kohli
RCB arrives in Chennai

Virat Kohli has arrived in Chennai for the first game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will be facing  Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening encounter of the tournament at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. 

After the unboxing event at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on Tuesday (20th March), Royal Challengers Bengaluru took the charter flight for Chennai to prepare themselves for the first game of IPL 2024. The match will be played on 22nd March (Friday). 

It’ll be the biggest game in the league as two of the biggest superstars of Indian cricket Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni will be up against each other. There will be no dearth of support for the teams but with the game being the southern derby, the Chepauk stadium is expected to be full yellow.

It’s fair to say that there could’ve been no better match than CSK vs RCB to kick-start the IPL 2024. The excitement to see Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni in action is just a couple of days away from now and it promises to be an enthralling contest. 

RCB arrived in Chennai late Tuesday night and as they landed at the airport, the fans went bonkers. But what caught the attention of many was when Virat Kohli came out of the tournament. The fans went crazy and chanted his name “Kohli Kohli”. Here is the video:

Virat Kohli no doubt possesses a different aura. He has been the best batter of his generation. He will be extremely crucial for RCB in the upcoming edition of the IPL. If the team has to fancy their chances of winning the tournament, he needs to step up and take them to glory. 

Virat Kohli will be seen in action for the first time since January. He missed the Test series against England due to personal reasons. The batter was in London as he and his wife gave birth to their second child whom they named ‘Akaay’.

Virat Kohli would be keen to make an impact for the team in the IPL 2024. The batter is likely to open the innings for the team and a lot would be reliant on him. It’s fair to say that if he fires with the bat then no one can take the trophy away from the RCB. The franchise would also be keen to lift their first title.
