The ongoing season of Indian Premier League is proving to be a great spectacle for cricket fans. Most of the teams find themselves within touching distance of qualifying for play-offs and things are getting quite exciting heading towards the business end of season. Amid all the mid-table sides, Royal Challengers Bangalore are the one who are in a relatively comfortable position with 14 points in 11 matches.

Without a doubt, there is lot more calm and relaxed atmosphere in the RCB dressing room and a glimpse of that was seen ahead of their clash against Punjab Kings on Sunday. When the players were leaving for the stadium in Sharjah, Glenn Maxwell was seen teasing Virat Kohli regarding the table tennis game that the duo were involved in earlier in the day.

Kohli not too pleased about the table tennis loss

The RCB skipper is undoubtedly one of the most passionate players in modern era, both on and off the field. Everyone knows that Kohli doesn't like loosing a game of cricket but not many people know that winning a friendly game of table tennis also means quite a lot to the 32-year-old. However, things did not really pan out the way he would have liked on Sunday.

In a video going viral on social media, Maxwell can be seen asking Kohli, "Skipper, what's the score?" Although Kohli did not look too interesting in answering, he later reveals that it was 5-2 in a very disappointing voice. The Aussie's laughter confirmed that the result was in favour of him, as the fans enjoy the friendly banter between two world class cricketers.

It wasn't a great day for Kohli on the cricket field as well as he found it really tough to bat in tough batting conditions in Sharjah. The right-handed batter was eventually dismissed by Moises Henriques after scoring 25 runs off 24 balls.
