The KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have not had a change of fortunes in IPL 2020. In 7 games so far, they have managed to win only once despite coming close a few more times. Their only win came against their next opponents, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Rahul had an Instagram LIVE chat with RCB skipper Virat Kohli a day prior to their clash for the second time in IPL 13. The two are very good friends off the field and that helped the conversation being quite friendly and easy.

During the convo, Kohli asked Rahul what one rule change he would like to have in the IPL. The latter was quick to respond by funnily mentioning that he would ask IPL to ban Kohli and his partner-in-crime AB de Villiers for the next game.

He said, "I think to start off, I would ask IPL to ban you and AB for next game. (Both laugh). Once you've achieved certain numbers, a certain amount of runs, the people should say 'just enough'".

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have been exceptional for RCB as the duo has recently become the first pair to register over 3,000 IPL runs together.

Kings XI Punjab will face Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday, October 15.
