Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, has got loads of praises on an international level across the world on behalf of his performance. In a recent interaction with media, Kohli has disclosed the major difference playing the Indian Premier League (IPL) and ICC tournaments.

On the contrary, when a player plays on international level in ICC tournaments, there are one on one matches and an individual faces the regular team players.
Virat Kohli said on Star Sports Cricket Connected, “You do play all your tournaments, which is one team versus another, ICC tournaments come every now and then, but even in ICC tournaments, you don’t really interact with the other team players or you see the other teams so often every now and then.”
“But in the IPL, you are just probably meeting another team every second or third day and that’s the beauty of the IPL, you are playing in a different ‘mahol’ (atmosphere).”
“I absolutely love that tournament and also for the camaraderie which you share with so many new players that you play with, so many players that you have known for a long time now, not from your own country, those who you don’t see often, and there is one reason why everyone loves the IPL too, there is a connect, of players and fans and of viewers,” said Virat Kohli.
Summarizing, Kohli has applauded his praises on the Indian cash-rich league and has preferred it over ICC tournaments.
Notably, even after a tremendous pieces of performances and being the skipper of his side, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), he hasn’t led the side yet towards the heights to touch the skies although Virat is also the leading run-scorer of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
