He also said that ” We have to face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the opening match of IPL 2017 and I am hoping Virat Kohli will not be playing. ” He also said that “if you are not playing a test match and you are going to play for RCB then it is not fair because you didn’t play against Australia to win an important series.” He said there are many players who became fit to play IPL.
