Virat Kohli is currently in UAE for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The tournament will be held entirely in the gulf nation because of the coronavirus pandemic situation in India. IPL 2020 is scheduled to start on September 19 while the final is set to take place on November 10.

Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore are eyeing their first-ever IPL title. The Bangalore-based outfit has not made it past the league stage since making it to the final in 2016 when their captain nearly scored 1,000 runs with the help of a record four centuries.
