In their latest desperate attempt to recover money from Vijay Mallya, SBI has a master plan. They have threatened to put Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli up for auction if Mallya denies paying them the amount he owes and time is running out very fast. Even Kohli could be stopped from playing the IPL final against Sunrisers Hyderabad tonight.
Virat Kohli is the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore where Vijay Mallya is still enjoying the role of the chief mentor (No, we have no clue what that position means). Virat has been in outstanding form this year and SBI is now hoping that other IPL franchises will bid some huge amounts to get their hands on one RCB’s prized asset.
“Vijay Mallya is still enjoying a role in the affairs of RCB as chief mentor and his son is still on the board so we are 100 percent sure that Mallya wants to see RCB winning their maiden IPL title this year. But we have the right to confiscate any asset of Vijay Mallya in order to recover our loans and right now, Kohli happens to be his biggest asset.
We have decided to put him up for auction and use the money to sort out Mallya’s debt. All the money that will be left would be returned to Mr. Mallya who can use that to buy Kings XI franchise if he has any future plan in IPL, we don’t care”, a senior official working with SBI told in an interview with Sportzwiki.
Then came the explosive comment as the official said, “We have also managed to bring a stay order from the Court to stop Kohli representing RCB in the IPL 2026 final if Vijay Mallya doesn’t respond to our action.” However, he can watch the match from the dugout.
Apparently despite Kohli’s strong protests against this auction, the banks are in no mood to negotiate. “Just tell me, who listens to an IPL player yaar, they are assets auctioned periodically. It would be a big deal if we brought forward Kohli’s auction by a few months”, the SBI official further informed.
Unfortunately, even the Courts is also in no mood to provide any kind of a relief to Virat Kohli after recently being informed about the difficulties banks were facing to recover the loaned money from Vijay Mallya.
Reports are claiming that former Kingfisher employees who have been waiting for their salaries to be paid have decided to volunteer to make the auction a smooth event. They have even promised SBI to create a human wall to prevent police or any family or friends from rescuing Kohli during the auction.
Meanwhile, a source close to Pakistan Cricket Board has claimed that even Pakistan is interested in bidding for Virat Kohli to give themselves a massive chance of beating India in the 2019 World Cup.
