    There is one thing about Virat Kohli - that man plays with his heart on his sleeve! He plays fearlessly, ensures he cheers when bowlers take wickets and is always animated on the field. So it was not a surprise that in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 he wouldn't be any different. 

    He held onto the Orange Cap until the 70-match league stage came to an end, saw his team Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) enter the Playoffs, and continued to be the man he is - everyone's friend on and off the field. So let's look at some iconic moments he shared with other team members.

Kohli has consistently shown respect for the former Indian skipper and held him in high regard, stating that MS Dhoni has been a strong pillar during his low times.

    This interaction between the two Indian batters turned out to be one of the cutest moments.

Rinku also asked Kohli to give him another bat in the lead-up to their clash. The chat instantly became a hit among IPL fans.

    Virat Kohli - Avesh Khan

    Rajasthan Royals (RR) shared a funny video of Virat Kohli meeting their pacer Avesh Khan. During a practice session, Kohli humorously greeted Avesh before the duo shared a hug.

During the clash against MI, Kohli asked the crowd not to boo Pandya, reminding them that he is an Indian player.
