Virat Kohli, the skipper of Royal Challenger's Bangalore, has responded to Jasprit Bumrah's warning ahead of the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League. 

Jasprit Bumrah, who plays for Mumbai Indians in IPL, had challenged earlier "world's best batsman" Kohli in a promotional video that went viral. 

Bumrah said, "World ka best bowler, nahin yaar. Abhi toh World k best batsman k dande udana baki hai." 

"Aa raha hu cheeku bhaiya, aur iss baar aap meri team me bhi nahi rahenge," Bumrah added. 

In response to that, Kohli said, "Cheeku bhayia? Apne captain ko sledge karega, chal...aakhir seekh hi gaya tu. Bas apne Cheeku bhaiya se koi udhari expect mat karna.

The English translation goes as, "Now, you will sledge your skipper, finally you have also learnt how to sledge. But do not expect any favours from your Cheeku bhaiya."
