If the rumors of salary reduction are true, Kohli’s salary will be 14 crore this time which will be less than others. Apart from Kohli, Bangalore have retained Glenn Maxwell (Rs 11 crore) and Mohammad Siraj (Rs 6 crore).
Question arouse Why did Kohli suddenly reduce his salary? Former India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, who is associated with Bangalore, said the reason was that Kohli was always responsible for Bangalore because of playing for many years. This time he has reduced his salary by Rs 2 crore just thinking that the team can come out with more money in the auction to buy some new players.
