Famous Kannada actress Rashmika Mandhanna selected Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore as her favorite cricketer and favorite IPL team, respectively. The 27-year-old actor, who has appeared in a number of films including Pushpa: The Rise – Part 1, Varisu, Sita Ramam, and Mission Majnu, described Virat Kohli as having a swagger and said that the 34-year-old is fantastic.
Mandanna defended her affection for Royal Challengers Bangalore by claiming that she is a native of the area and that this is why she supports the team. The actress expressed her intention to watch an IPL 2023 match featuring the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
“I am from Bangalore, I am from Karnataka, and we have the slogan ‘Ee Sala Cup Namde’ going on so I think that just carried on,” the speaker said. In a video uploaded by Star Sports, Mandanna remarked, “I hope this IPL I can watch RCB play.
When asked who her favorite cricketer was, Mandanna responded, “Virat Sir, he is a swagger, he is awesome.”
Notably, Virat Kohli is playing phenomenally this season. The 34-year-old is fifth on the IPL Orange Cap list after scoring 333 runs in his first eight games. The RCB franchise is now being led by the legendary cricketer as the normal skipper Faf du Plessis is only participating as an Impact Player.
RCB will take on LSG in the upcoming Luckow. Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have finished three times as runners-up, will be out for vengeance when Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore square off on May 1 in Lucknow. Super Giants upset Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier in the season. They will hope to win and raise their status in the competition because they are now sixth on the IPL Points Table.
But for that to happen, their middle order needs to gel, which it hasn’t done so far. While Faf, Virat, and Glenn Maxwell are playing brilliantly, RCB finds it difficult to get going once they return to the pavilion. Players like Harshal Patel, David Willey, and Vijaykumar Vyshak still need to significantly improve when they get the ball.
