Latest Cricket News: Virat Kohli values loyalty beyond anything else. He has stated this numerous times, and his decision to remain with the Royal Challengers Bangalore demonstrates this. Kohli, India’s Test and ODI captain, has stated repeatedly that he will only play for one franchise in the IPL, the Bangalore club, and that he will take a wage cut to stay with them for the next three years.
Kohli, who is no longer the RCB captain, as well as Glenn Maxwell and Mohammed Siraj, have all been retained by the franchise. They couldn’t find a position in their retentions for Harshal Patel, who held the purple cap the previous season, or even Yuzvendra Chahal.
“The voyage continues since RCB has decided to keep me on board. When I was contacted, I had no reservations about accepting. It’s been an incredible experience throughout the years, and I’m looking forward to three more years with a franchise that means so much to me. I believe the best is still to come, and I’m excited about what’s in store for the coming season “RCB tweeted a video of Virat Kohli saying this.
“Our fan support is incredible, and management has been fantastic with me and the rest of the team. On the field, I had more energy and was a different version of myself. But I’ll be there for RCB with all my heart and soul “Added he.

At the auction for players, RCB made a profit of 57 crore rupees
To understand why Kohli took a wage reduction, consider that he was the team’s first retention, costing INR 15 crores, with Maxwell costing INR 11 crores. Siraj was also the third player to be retained for a fee of INR 7 crore.
Kohli, on the other hand, was previously paid INR 17 crores. Kohli’s decision, according to former India and RCB star Parthiv Patel, may have been in the team’s best interests because taking 17 crores would have meant a smaller purse for the auction.
The retentions cost RCB a total of 33 crores, leaving them with 57 crores when it comes time to bid for players.
“I believe he took a pay reduction in the team’s best interests. Those Rs 2 crore would have been deducted from their kitty if he had taken Rs 17 crore. He has made that decision in the team’s best interests, and that is the correct decision “On Tuesday, Parthiv told Star Sports.
“We all know how talented Virat Kohli is as a cricketer. He made the correct decision “Added he.
