Former RCB captain Virat Kohli and his love for dogs has been seen in many viral photos.
In a post Virat is seen playing with a dog on the field during practice session.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have posted the pictures, naming them as the Muthoot Moment of the day.
The off-coloured batsman has scored 216 runs in 12 matches at an average of 19.64.
Virat's decline as a batsman had taken the cricket world by storm. He hasn't scored a century in any format for three years now and the wait for that 71st hundred has gained mythical proportions. All of this further gained steam when he was out on duck on two consecutive games followed by another golden duck few games later.
Earlier former head coach Ravi Shastri had asked Virat to take a break, "I am going straight to the main guy here. Virat Kohli is overcooked. If anyone needs a break, it's him," he said."Whether it's 2 months or a month-and-a-half, whether it's after England or before England. He needs a break because he has got 6-7 years of cricket left in him and you don't want to lose that with a fried brain," he added
RCB head coach, on the other hand, had defended Virat. "He is somebody who has consistently performed for RCB. Players go through rough patches. He is certainly doing everything that is in his control. He is doing his fitness and skills and taking good breaks and not letting the pressure get to him. He has been taking breaks at regular intervals and will continue to do so going forward," he said.
RCB is currently placed fourth on the points table.
The former RCB captain is arguably one of the greatest batsmen of all time and once he gets going he will be unstoppable. With the IPL getting towards the business end, the race to book a playoff berth has already begun.
