“I’ve been approached a few times as well — to come into the auction somehow — I have thought about it,” Kohli said during the podcast. The ex-Indian skipper was a U-19 star when Bangalore acquired the services of their future captain and franchise icon in 2008.

“At the end of the day, a person lives a certain number of years, and then you die and life moves on. There have been many great players who have won trophies and things like that but no one addresses you like that. If you are a good person, people like you and if you are a bad guy, they stay away from you. Eventually, that’s what life is all about,” Kohli added.

Kohli is one of the most prolific run-getters in the history of the league. In 207 matches, he has amassed 6,283 runs at an average of 37.4. Kohli has slammed five centuries and 42 half-centuries in his iconic IPL career.

At the retention, Kohli and Glenn Maxwell were the only players who were held back by the franchise. RCB would now look for a new captain at the auction. Reports suggest the franchise would bid heavily for Shreyas Iyer.
