Bangalore: Dashing Indian batter Virat Kohli is looking forward to lead the host team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as a full-time captain in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 tournament this season.

"I have always enjoyed captaincy. I really enjoyed the challenge when I captained in the last two seasons. It is pretty exciting to be honest, it is not something that I take as a pressure thing," Kohli told reporters here late on Wednesday at a pre-match presser.
