RCB will be waiting with baited breath for Kohli's return as they have only one win from their three outings to date, however, there is no official confirmation on the comeback yet.

Last week, the skipper had announced that he would not return to the IPL until he was '120 per cent' fit, as he wanted to ensure his fitness for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. The Royal Challengers will face the Mumbai Indians at Chinnaswamy Stadium in their second home game of the tournament.
