The franchise posted a series of images of the ace batter making his way to the hotel after landing in Mumbai. RCB will open their IPL 2022 campaign with a clash against the Punjab Kings at the DY Patil Stadium on March 27.

Kohli will be seen in a brand new avatar after relinquishing the captaincy role after IPL 2021. He is slated to open the innings and play under Faf du Plessis as the side looks for their maiden title.

RCB chose Virat Kohli as their first retention pick ahead of the mega auction. He was retained alongside Glenn Maxwell and Mohammad Siraj.

Kohli comes into the IPL on the back of an average home season which culminated with the pink ball Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
