'We never really connected' Virat Kohli recalls KL Rahul's stint with RCB

KL Rahul might be a giant in T20 cricket now but Virat Kohli 'did't connect with him in a detailed manner' when he was a part of RCB in 2013

Virat Kohli has opened up on KL Rahul's days at the Royal Challengers Bangalore when he used to play under Virat's leadership.

While speaking on a Royal Challengers Bangalore podcast, Kohli said that KL Rahul was at RCB in 2013 along with Karun Nair and Mayank Agarwal but Rahul was never a guy who was looked at as a T20 specialist.

'I hadn't seen much of KL since he left RCB, and I had heard he is doing well in first-class cricket. He was very young when he was at RCB, and I was already playing for India and we were regularly playing for RCB. So, we never really connected in a very detailed manner,' the former RCB skipper added.

KL Rahul was a part of RCB in 2013 but was roped in by the SunRisers Hyderabad for the next two seasons. He, however, returned to the RCB in 2016, and ended the season as the team's third-highest run-getter with 397 runs in 14 matches.
