Royal Challengers Bengaluru's teammates Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik were engaged in a hilarious banter during a fun questions and answers session with the teammates.

In a viral video, presenter Dinesh Karthik asked his four teammates, Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Mohammed Siraj and Rajat Patidar about his favourite sportsperson other than cricketer. Kohli hilariously responded by saying Karthik's wife, to which the wicketkeeper agreed. Dinesh Karthik cheekily said that he had a different answer in his mind.

Dinesh Karthik: Who is my favourite sportsperson other than cricketer?

Virat Kohli: Your wife?

DK: It's a great answer for sure (laughs). I had a different answer in my head. You caught me off guard, completely, I swear.

For unversed, Dinesh Karthik's wife Dipika Pallikal is a well-known Indian squash player. Karthik married Deepika in a Telugu-Naidu Hindu ceremony in Chennai in August 2015. Dipika Pallikal is a two-time World Doubles Champion in Glasgow in 2022, a women's doubles gold medalist at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and won gold medal in the mixed doubles at the 2022 Asian Games.

Dinesh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal became parents to twin boys, who were born in October 2021. Even after giving birth to twins, Palikkal continues to represent India in squad at International level.

Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik are in incredible form in IPL 2024

Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik are batting mainstays for Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. Both have been incredible form in the IPL 2024.

Kohli is currently the Orange Cap holder in this season of the tournament, with 361 runs, including a century and two fifties, at an average of 72.20 and a strike rate of 147.34 in seven matches.

Kohli's best performance came against Rajasthan Royals, wherein he scored an unbeaten 113 off 72 balls and helped RCB post a 183/3 in 20 overs. However, his effort went in vain as Jos Buttler's brilliant unbeaten century guide RR ti the victory.

Dinesh Karthik, on the other hand, has been a reliable batter in the middle-order for RCB this season. He has amassed 226 runs, including two fifties, at an average of 75.33 and at an astounding strike rate of 205.45. DK's best performance came against SunRisers Hyderabad, wherein he played a valiant knock of 83 off 35 balls while chasing a hefty target of 288.

However, Karthik's effort went in vain as RCB fell 26-run short of the target.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bengaluru are struggling to get going in the IPL 2024 as they managed to win only one from seven matches. The three-time IPL finalists are currently languishing at the bottom of the table with just two points.

RCB will play their next match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on Sunday, April 21.
