  • Rajasthan Royals are ready to consider Virat Kohli's move to their franchise but with one condition

  • The 2020 edition of IPL begins from September 19.

After a long hiatus and days of uncertainty looming large over the future of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the league is all set to get underway in just over a month’s time period. The league will definitely provide an escapism from the banality of daily lives in the time of crisis.


As excitement soars over the commencement of much-awaited T20 extravaganza, social media banters between different franchises have already started.

In one instance, Rajasthan Royals (RR) have shown interest in acquiring the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli but with certain terms and conditions.


It all started when a netizen posted Kohli’s picture but with slight tweaks. The skipper can be seen donning an RR jersey with a caption that read: “Royals Welcomes The KING”.

The Rajasthan-based franchise decided to take this further and added that they would welcome the Indian talisman only if Mr Nags comes along.

Mr Nags, as he is popularly known, is none but Danish Sait who comes up with hilarious clips and juicy gossips of team members inside RCB camps.


While speaking about this funny character, Danish earlier said that Mr Nags is a “stereotypical representation of a Bengalurean”.

“The audiences can, therefore, relate to him since the accent, mannerisms are similar, therefore relatability is high. He is in a bubble of his own, not noticing that the world thinks of him as an idiot,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kohli has been leading the Bangalore-based franchise since 2013 but is yet to find any considerable success. As a batsman, he always had a stellar tournament, but when it comes to the leadership front, the RCB skipper has left a lot to desire.


The 13th season of the cash-rich league starts from September 19, and the final will be played on November 10. The tournament has been shifted to UAE, a nation which successfully countered the coronavirus outbreak.
