According to various reports, the Indian captain and the RCB captain Virat Kohli will join the RCB training camp on April 1. He will join the camp two days after his side started their preparations for the IPL. Moreover, several members of RCB have already arrived in Chennai to kick off their preparations for IPL 2021. The tournament will start on April 9.
RCB will play their initial matches of IPL 2021 in Chennai
As per schedule, RCB will play their first few matches including the season opener against Mumbai Indians, in Chennai. RCB began their training camp on April 30. Kohli’s India and RCB teammates, Mohammed Siraj and Yuzvendra Chahal went straight to Chennai from Pune, on Monday afternoon, after India’s ODI series win against England on Sunday.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli has taken a short break after a hectic series against England for the last two months. As ESPNCricinfo says, that Kohli needs to serve one week of quarantine before he can start with his training. This is part of the guidelines to operate in the bio-secure environment. On Monday, after Kohli left the Indian camp, he left the bubble in Pune and thus has to serve a week quarantine before entering into the IPL bubble.
On Sunday, the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Indian captain said that the administrators need to think about the scheduling of the matches as the players and the members will face issues for staying in a bubble for a longer time. Virat Kohli has been part of a bubble since the end of January for playing the series against England. Before that, he was in bio-bubble for two months while playing the IPL in 2020. He was then part of the bubble in Australia.
