Virat Kohli says that till the time he plays IPL, he will not leave RCB.
“It’s been 12 years, and it’s such an amazing journey, so surreal. You have been here 9 years yourself. For many people, it’s all about we want to achieve the goal for RCB. We have come close thrice but haven’t made it. That will always be our dream together, and I was just thinking there is no way in any scenario that I can ever think of leaving this team. Because of the love and care, the franchise has shown. You can feel emotional about the season going well or not, but to have that loyalty with Bangalore, with RCB, it’s surreal. Till the time I play IPL, regardless of how we play, I’ll never leave this team,” Virat Kohli said during Instagram live with AB De Villiers.
AB de Villiers also doesn’t want to leave RCB but doesn’t know how many years to come. He also laughed while saying that he had to score runs to be RCB.
“Not everyone is as sure of staying in the side as you are (laughs). They have been my inspiration for quite a few years now. I never want to leave Bangalore, but I know I have to score runs if I want to stay in the side. That’s pushed me and the fans but every time I look back at playing in IPL or South Africa or any team you think of relationships and friends. You think about special moments, the crowd atmosphere. Those are the things you never want to give away. I want to be in Bangalore for I dunno how many years to come,” ABD responded to Kohli.
