Mumbai: Virat Kohli has faced the heat recently for his dip in batting form. In the ongoing IPL, he has already registered three golden ducks – something that has b=never happened during his illustrious career spanning over a decade. In the IPL, Kohli and AB de Villiers have been part of the RCB team for many years. Over the years, they have stitched many match-winning stands and are very close to each other away from the field as well.

With ABD no more a part of IPL, Kohli has admitted missing the ex-South African cricketer. In a recent conversation on RCB’s official social media handle with Mr Nags, Kohli went on to reveal that he is in constant touch with ABD over the phone.

“I miss him a lot. I speak to him regularly. He keeps messaging me, he was in US recently watching golf,” Kohli revealed.

Kohli has just 216 runs in 12 games this season. RCB are in fourth spot in the points table with 14 points from 12 games. RCB are yet to qualify for the playoffs, but with two more games left – they should do it. Bangalore play Punjab in their next game on May 13.
