It was work as usual for the RCB players on Tuesday. They were involved in a practice session at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. That is when they were taken aback by Sunil Chettri's surprise visit.
Chettri had led Bengaluru FC to their maiden ISL title on Sunday against FC Goa. He had come to RCB's den to spend some time with the players. He was then introduced to the team by skipper Virat Kohli. At the same time, Chettri said that he was a big RCB fan and conveyed his best wishes to everyone. The Bangalore outfit will be eyeing their maiden IPL title after being unlucky in three finals (2009,2011,2016).
After introducing Chettri to the team, Kohli can be heard telling them they can feel free to have any discussion with the star footballer regarding their mindset or the body language. English all-rounder Moeen Ali and wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel are a part of this interaction along with the rest of their team-mates. RCB's bowling coach Ashish Nehra then asks his players whether they have any questions regarding Football before coach Gary Kirsten instructs his team to resume their practice.

After Bengaluru FC's triumph, all eyes will now be on the Royal Challengers Bangalore to create history. The fans will once again be cheering for their favourite team. RCB's fans have also stood by the team during the team's tough phase and this year is unlikely to be any different.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will be starting their campaign against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings on March 23 at the MA Chidambaram stadium.
