Indian star batter Virat Kohli has shared a personal anecdote regarding his daughter, Vamika and provided an update on the well-being of his newborn son, Akaay.

In a candid discussion on the social platforms of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) with Mr Nags, portrayed by Danish Sait, Kohli discussed his daughter's burgeoning fascination with cricket.

"My daughter has picked up the cricket bat and she's enjoying swinging the bat. I'm not sure, their choice is final," Kohli said.

In February, Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma were blessed with a baby boy. Kohli and Anushka revealed that the baby boy was born on February 15.

"Baby is good, healthy. Everything is fine, thank you!" Kohli said when asked about his son Akaay.

Kohli is presently part of the RCB in the ongoing Indian Premier League. He's been pivotal in the franchise's pursuit of a spot in the playoffs.

In the current IPL season, Kohli leads the race for the orange cap with 661 runs in 13 innings, boasting a strike rate of 155.16 and an impressive average of 66.10. His tally includes five fifties and a solitary century.

RCB currently sits sixth in the IPL table, having garnered 12 points from 13 matches. They face a crucial encounter against the fourth-ranked Chennai Super Kings, who have amassed 14 points from 13 matches, on Saturday.

To remain in contention for the playoffs, RCB, with a net run rate of 0.387, must secure a victory to surpass CSK's NRR of 0.528.

RCB will fancy their chances of emerging victorious at their home stadium on Saturday night. Following a challenging April, they are now on an unbeaten streak after winning five consecutive games.
