"The duo will join a dream line-up at RCB with India s Test Captain Virat Kohli leading them," he added.

RCB owner Vijay Mallya, said: "Given his multiple skills, KL Rahul has a lot to offer RCB in terms of batting and wicket keeping. It s a good feeling to get a prominent local Karnataka boy back home and in the RCB fold again.
