Former West Indies and Royal Challengers Bangalore player Chris Gayle shares a friendly bond with Virat Kohli. They played together for RCB.
Virat and Gayle registered several match-winning partnerships for RCB and were often in contention for the Orange Cap.
Gayle recalled when Kohli was the Orange Cap holder, but he took it from him after performing exceptionally well in several games.
Gayle also discussed Virat’s competitive nature on the show ‘My Time with Virat’ at Jio Cinema.
“Virat Kohli was the Orange Cap holder one season and was going strong. I was getting runs but Kohli was ahead of me. And then I went on a rampage in two or three games and took the Orange Cap from him. Virat was surprised and said that this guy went on a bang, bang and bang and got hold of the Orange Cap. I was just a funny thing that I’ll always remember.”
While Gayle no longer plays in IPL, Virat is still associated with the Bangalore-based franchise. He will represent them in IPL 2023.
