According to Glenn Maxwell, Virat Kohli is no longer the “in your face” aggressive cricketer he once was. Along with Kohli, Maxwell was one of three players retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ahead of the IPL big auction in 2022. According to the Australian, Kohli’s departure from the team may be “bad news” for the opposition. Kohli stood down as RCB captain at the end of the IPL 2021 season. He also resigned as India’s T20I captain before being fired from his ODI position. Kohli even resigned as Test captain after India’s series defeat in South Africa earlier this year. Rohit Sharma has been named India’s new captain in all formats. Kohli commanded RCB for a decade but couldn’t help his team win their maiden IPL title. RCB has appointed former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman Faf du Plessis as its new captain ahead of the tournament’s 15th season.

“Enjoy having nice discussions with Kohli regarding the game.” Maxwell, Glenn:-

Maxwell, who joined the Bangalore-based IPL franchise in 2021, had a fantastic first season. In 15 games, the explosive Australian batsman scored 513 runs, including six fifties, for an average of 42.75. He hit 144.10 per cent of the time to score those runs.

Further complimenting his former skipper, the former Mumbai Indians (MI) cricketer stated that he had noticed Kohli’s “emotions” and “decision-making” to be very measured. On March 27, RCB will play Punjab Kings (PBKS) at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai to begin their IPL 2022 campaign.
