Wasting no time in extending help to the people of the financial capital after the postponement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli has started working for India’s COVID-19 relief amid the deadly surge of novel coronavirus. Time after time, Kohli has supported the initiatives and measures to spearhead India’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, Kohli was spotted holding a dialogue with Yuva Sena member Rahul N Kanal about the incredible movement he has started to support the pandemic relief efforts amid these unprecedented times. Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Kanal shared a couple of photos to reveal that skipper Kohli has resumed working for the COVID relief following the indefinite suspension of the IPL 2021 in Mumbai.
“Meeting our Captain…Respect and love for the movement he has started working on for COVID relief… No words just Respect and Prayers for all his efforts !!! @imVkohli,” Kanal captioned his post on the microblogging site. Sporting a casual look, Kohli was seen maintaining social distancing during his meeting with a member of the education committee in Mumbai. The unseen photos of the Indian skipper a day after the postponement of the IPL 2021 soon became the talk of the town.
Regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the modern era of the gentlemen’s game, Kohli was leading three-time runners-up RCB in the 14th season of the IPL before the tournament was called off due to multiple COVID-19 cases in the bio-bubble. Under Kohli’s leadership, RCB were gunning for their maiden title in the 2021 edition of the cash-rich league.
The Kohli-led RCB made an impressive start to their campaign by winning the first three matches of the new season. RCB were placed third in the IPL 2021 standings when the IPL governing council and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) opted to suspend the cash-rich league. The BCCI has postponed the IPL 2021 after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsman Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals (DC) spinner Amit Mishra tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday.
