Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli provided an interesting response to Harry Kane, who asked the cricketer about a potential spot in the franchise’s squad for the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Kane took to Twitter on Friday, sharing a video where he can be seen striking a tennis ball cleanly during an indoor cricket game with other Tottenham Hotspur players. “Got a match winning T20 knock in me I reckon. Any places going for @RCBTweets in the @IPL next season @imVkohli,” read the caption on the tweet by the footballer.

Kohli praised the Tottenham striker’s skills in his response. He followed it up by suggesting a potential role as a “counter-attacking” batsman in the RCB squad.
“Haha good skills mate. Maybe we can get you in as a counter attacking batsman @HKane,” said the reaction from the batsman.

Kohli was seen in action during the first ODI of the three-match series between Australia and India on Friday. The 32-year-old failed to make much of an impact, scoring 21 runs off as many deliveries with the visitors defeated by a margin of 66 runs.
RCB had earlier responded to Kane’s post, confirming that they have reserved the number 10 jersey just for the footballer. “We’ve reserved the #10 jersey just for you, @harrykane,” read the comment from the IPL franchise on the striker’s post.
Kane has been in fine form for Tottenham this season, with seven goals to his name. Tottenham are currently top of the Premier League table, having accumulated 20 points from nine matches.
