Royal Challengers Bengaluru star Cameron Green has revealed the reason behind Virat Kohli always being the first to board the team bus. The Australia allrounder is plying his trade for the Bengaluru-based outfit for the first time this season.

Last year, he made his debut IPL debut and represented five-time champions Mumbai Indians. While Green did not really hit the ground running in IPL, he managed to finish the season on a high. In 16 games, he scored 452 runs at an average of 50, including one century and two half-centuries.

He also picked up six wickets to help MI qualify for the playoffs. MI, however, decided to trade him to RCB in order to free up the fund for Hardik Pandya's sensational return. For RCB so far, Green has scored 111 runs and has picked up six wickets.

Virat Kohli the 'good boy' of the RCB team:

Cameron Green recently attended an an event where he revealed that Virat Kohli boards the team bus before anyone else. The Australia allrounder made it clear that it is not a superstitious practice but the RCB players  prefer getting onto the bus only when things settle down after the reception from fans for Virat Kohli.

Green was asked to name the 'good boy' in the RCB team and he picked Kohli, saying: "Probably Virat to be fair, I think it's good for him to get on the bus, all the crowd can go wild and then everyone, calms down, and we'll just walk down quietly."

Will Jacks, who scored a sensational 41-ball century against Gujarat Titans in the last game, also attended the event. The England allrounder also spoke about the love and support RCB receive all over the country. Jacks also revealed that the players hear RCB and Kohli chants wherever they go.

"I think I'm stuck on what counts as it feels like every game is a home game. It's amazing, you see at least half of RCB shirts in the crowd. It's an amazing feeling, they are always chanting obviously. Kohli chants everywhere and RCB chants.

"You don't feel under pressure, like you are out of the way there and you feel like there is something out of there. You always feel you got support and if you do well, they will cheer for you," Jacks said.

RCB have revived their slim playoffs chances by winning their last two games and will be eyeing another win when they take on Gujarat Titans on Saturday (May 4).
