Australian player Mitchell Starc recalls his RCB days with Virat Kohli

In the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League All eyes will be on Mitchell Starc as the Australian pacer becomes the costliest buy in the history of the IPL auction. The left-arm pacer was acquired by the two-time champion Kolkata Knight Riders for a whopping total of Rs 24.75 crore. This season will mark his return to the cash-rich tournament, as he last played the IPL in 2015 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. During that time, RCB was under the captaincy of star Indian batter Virat Kohli.
Recently, Starc opened up about his time with RCB and also called Kohli a 'fierce competitor'.
In a video posted on X Starc, she said, “I do remember fondly the couple of years that I had at the RCB alongside Virat. He was the captain as well. That was the first time I got to know him properly, particularly off the field.”
He added, "He is such a different person off the field. Such a humble and warm character off the field and then fiercely competitive on it. I remember that the most about him.”
Not only Starc, but Australia skipper Pat Cummins also became an expensive buy at the IPL 2023 auctions, as he was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 20.50 crore.
