Kohli enjoyed a massive fanbase in Bengaluru and the star batter has also shown his loyalty towards his franchise on several occasions and often claimed that he won’t play for any other team in IPL.

The talismanic batter opened up on his love affair with fans at Chinnaswamy as he said the numbers and achievements don’t matter to him but the memories he creates with the team while playing.

“It’s been going on for years. People talk about a lot of other things when you play sport – achievement, stats, numbers. But when you look back it’s the memories you create. The love, appreciation and backing I’ve received has been amazing,” the 35-year-old added.

Don’t Play For Orange Caps Anymore

Kohli further ended by saying that he doesn’t care much about the Orange Cap anymore as his only focus is to help his team in any possible way he can.

“I don’t play for caps and all that anymore, it’s just another opportunity to help my team, that’s the only thing I’ve given to Indian cricket and to RCB, that’s the promise I can give you and not the probably the orange cap. But I will keep turning up and keep trying my best,” he added.
