As soon as Kohli made his way into the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday amid huge cheers from the fans, videos of the former RCB skipper emerged on social media in no time in which he was seen warming up, doing batting practice chatting with Australian player Glenn Maxwell.

After regaining his form, Kohli opened up in a chat with RCB recently, saying that he is back to playing the way he did but there is still some improvement needed to get back to his best, hoping it happens in the IPL 2023.

“It was just about rediscovering the love for the game. That could happen when I stepped away from what was happening on the field for so long. I was trying to find ways when I was exhausted. I needed to connect myself as a human first, not judge myself constantly or keep myself under scrutiny all the time. Staying away from the game helped me. That helped me rediscover my excitement and love for the game. When I came back, everything was an opportunity, nothing was pressure,” Kohli said in a video shared by RCB.

“The results followed. I was able to play well in T20Is, ODIs, and recently in the Test series as well. I’m back to playing the way I do, there’s still a lot of room to get to my best, which hopefully happens in the IPL if I get to the level I really want to play. That would help the team,” Kohli further said.
