I absolutely love IPL, it has a different atmosphere: Virat Kohli
NEW DELHI: The camaraderie that players share during the Indian Premier League (IPL) is what makes the tournament special for India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli . He would have led RCB in the 2020 edition of the T20 league right now, if it hadn't been for him coronavirus pandemic deferral force IPL until new notice.
You play all your tournaments, which is one team against another, ICC tournaments come from time to time, but even in ICC tournaments, you don't really interact with the other players on the team or see the other teams as often from time to time and then Kohli said on a Star Sports show.
But in the IPL, you are just probably meeting another team every second or third day and that's the beauty of the IPL, you are playing in a different atmosphere.
RCB may not have enjoyed too much success in the IPL thus far, but Kohli has shared the dressing room with some of the biggest names in the sport such as AB by Villiers and Chris Gayle.
Kohli also said that the connection franchises can make to fans in their cities also makes the tournament special.
I absolutely love that tournament and also for the camaraderie which you share with so many new players that you play with, so many players that you have known for a long time now, not from your own country, those who you don't see often, and there is one reason why everyone loves the IPL too, there is a connect, of players and fans and of viewers, he said.
