Kohli undergoes fielding drills in RCB practice session

The caption left little to the imagination: "Can't wait to get back onto the field".

Flamboyant player AB De Villiers made a sensational comeback in yesterday's match against Kings XI Punjab but the stars were not in RCB's favour and they lost the match by 8 wickets.

Kohli has been out of action since the third India-Australia Test at Ranchi, where while diving to save a boundary at long-on, he sustained a shoulder injury, which forced him to sit out of deciding Test at Dharamshala towards the end of March.

The news of Kohli hinting a return to the team for the next game will please every RCB fan, who is hoping for the team to bounce back and string a few consistent wins to gather some momentum. Nearly there now. Awaiting April 14th.

Last week, the skipper had announced that he would not return to the IPL until he was "120 per cent" fit, as he wanted to ensure his fitness for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. Having said that I would like to return on field as soon as possible.

"But it is frustrating that you can't play because of injury on just one part of your body". She flew down to Bangalore to meet Virat Kohli. However, his knock wasn't enough to take RCB cross the line but it assured fans that he will take care of batting in the rest of the matches.

Quick single: Winds of change blowing for Gayle? Watson has failed to perform with both bat and ball.

The Royal Challengers will face the Mumbai Indians at Chinnaswamy Stadium in their second home game of the tournament.
