<p>IPL 2024: Ahead of his much anticipated comeback to professional cricket, Virat Kohli will shortly be attending Royal Challengers Bangalore’s pre-season training over the weekend. This means he will be featured in the IPL 2024.</p>

<p>Due to personal circumstances, Kohli took a brief hiatus and was unable to play in the just finished home Test series between India and England.</p>
<p>He will report to the RCB camp prior to March 17, with the team’s annual ‘Unbox’ promotional function slated for March 19 at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.</p>
<p>When the Royal Challengers of Bangalore (RCB) prepare for their first league match against the Chennai Super Kings, Kohli will be striving for a comprehensive IPL 2024 preparation.</p>
<p>The IPL 2024 is slated to begin on March 22, and in Chepauk, RCB will take on the reigning champions, CSK.</p>
<p>Notably, since the T20I series against Afghanistan in January, Kohli has not participated in a competitive cricket match. He also skipped the England series to be with his wife Anushka Sharma after the birth of their second kid, Akaay.</p>
<p>Prior to the team’s trip to Chennai for the much awaited tournament opener, Virat Kohli will reunite with the RCB team at their training camp in Bengaluru.</p>
<p>Conversely, on Tuesday, March 12, RCB captain Faf du Plessis landed in Bengaluru to begin the pre-season training.</p>
<p>When it comes to big performances, the 17th IPL season will be crucial for Kohli since he wants to establish himself as a contender for the T20 World Cup squad.</p>
<p>Days after the IPL concludes, on June 1, the highly anticipated competition will take place in the USA and the West Indies. Numerous indications indicate that the former captain of India is still questionable.</p>
<p>Earlier in the year, Virat and captain Rohit Sharma returned to the Indian team for a three-match series against Afghanistan in the shortest format.</p>
<p>After missing out on the T20I format for over 13 months, both players were nominated to the team, while Rohit was appointed captain in place of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya, who were both sidelined by injury.</p>
<p>Later on, Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI, announced that Rohit will captain the team in the T20 World Cup.</p>
<p>It would be intriguing to see whether Virat Kohli chooses to stay the opener for the Royal Challenge of Bengal or move to the number three spot in light of his possible inclusion in the Indian squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.</p>
<p>With 639 runs in 14 games at an average of 53.25, Kohli finished as the fourth-highest run scorer in the IPL 2023, having had an incredible season.</p>
