As for the new season, Royal Challengers Bangalore have started their pre-tournament camp without their number one Virat Kohli, who might take a few more days to join him before the team begins their IPL campaign against the defending champions of Chennai Super Kings on March 22.

Most of the national players have joined the camp under the leadership of the new head coach Andy Fleur and director of cricket Mo Bobat and they put themselves through their paces on the opening day of camp on Wednesday.

“Kohli is expected to join us in the coming days,” a BCCI source, who is tracking developments within the IPL teams, told PTI.
