He went to Australia to play for India. Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma returned home after playing the first Test to be by her side during the birth of her first child, but Virat Kohli has never played a match before!
He played three ODIs and one T20, one Test. Despite losing the ODI series, India won the T20 series under his leadership. In Kohli’s only Test, India suffered a humiliating defeat in Adelaide, being bowled out for 36 in the second innings of the Test. Then, without Kohli, India wrote an incredible fairy tale in the Test series under Ajinkya Rahane, turning around and winning the second Test series in a row on Australian soil …
He discusses another. Now, why is there talk of Kohli’s tour of Australia? Kohli’s team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL after the Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell’s words. In Maxi’s words, it seems that Kohli was thinking of the Indian team as well as Bangalore during the tour of Australia. At first glance, it looks like Kohli was on a ferry to Bangalore! How? The Indian captain had invited Maxwell to play in Bangalore on that tour!
In a video tweeted from Bangalore, Maxwell talks about his arrival in Bangalore and the time he has spent in Bangalore so far. There, Kohli’s role in Maxi’s arrival in Bangalore has come to the fore.
Maxwell now has a chance to play in the ODI and T20 teams for Australia. The 32-year-old Australian said Kohli was the first to join him in Bangalore in the ODI and T20 series, adding, “We have been sending light-hearted text messages for a long time. How is everything going, all this was talked about. We talked after the ODI and T20 series in Australia. He told me to join RCB. ‘
But not just Kohli, Maxwell or the Bangalore franchise! There is also the matter of matching everything in the auction. Who knows better than Kohli! Maxwell said the same thing, keeping in mind the possibility of me getting a chance to come to the RCB (at auction) and saying, “We would love to have you in the team.” He just said he would love to have me on the team. The idea (of playing in Bangalore) was also instilled in his head. Even then there was a long process left. Fortunately, I can play in RCB now. ‘
After Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s tug-of-war with Chennai Super Kings in the auction held in February, Bangalore finally bought Maxwell for Rs 142.5 million. However, after Maxwell’s disappointing performance in last year’s IPL in the United Arab Emirates, many were surprised to see his high price in this year’s IPL. But on Indian soil, playing on a relatively slow pitch, the difference between the grip of the wicket after the ball fell on the wicket and the ability of Maxwell to hit four-sixes was easily understood as the reason for Chennai-Bangalore’s interest in him.

Maxwell also proved himself in the first match in Bangalore. In the opening match of the IPL on April 9, Maxwell scored 39 off 28 balls with 3 fours and 2 sixes to give the team a resounding victory by 2 wickets against Mumbai Indians. Another Australian David Warner’s team will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in Bangalore tonight at 8pm Bangladesh time.
Bangalore’s jersey has already been worn in the IPL, but before the auction, the Bangalore hat was pressed on Maxwell’s head. Australian leg-spinner Adam Jampa, who is already in Bangalore, is behind this. Kohli had reported the incident once before. The fact is, just before the IPL auction, Jampa put a Bangalore cap on Maxwell’s head just to have fun. The Australian team went on a tour of New Zealand at that time. After Maxwell got a chance in Bangalore, Jampa spread the picture on social media again.
Maxwell was a little embarrassed to remember the incident, ‘Speaking of the day of the auction, it was night in New Zealand. We were then in quarantine in New Zealand and practicing. Adam had an RCB hat in his jumper bag. He took it out of the bag and (after pressing the hat on Maxwell’s head) confirmed that we were taking pictures of it. The picture was sent to Virat. “Let’s get Maxwell to the team,” he said. Congratulations, I’ve already given him his first cap. “
Maxwell will play and there will be no more shots!

Although Maxwell was a little apprehensive about the incident at the time. He took a picture of Bangalore wearing a hat, but if he can’t go to Bangalore after that, he is worried. “That was before the auction,” Maxi admitted. Then everything happened quickly. But if it weren’t for everything like this (if Maxwell couldn’t go to Bangalore) it wouldn’t seem like a fool’s errand! He (Jampa) posted the picture later, but took it before the auction. ‘
Laughing, Maxwell recalls, “Kohli said, ‘You two are donkeys, but sweet people.’
