English player Kate Cross's latest revelation adds another layer to the story of RCB's celebration of their women's team victory in the WPL. According to her, it was Virat Kohli who advocated for honouring the RCB women during the team's unbox event. This underscores Kohli's commitment to recognising the achievements of the women's team and promoting gender equality within the franchise.

RCB's women won their first-ever title in the WPL's second edition, defeating Delhi Capitals in the final. It was a big moment for RCB fans, especially for Virat Kohli, RCB's biggest legend. Despite his long tenure with RCB, Kohli hadn't been able to secure an IPL title for the franchise. So, when the women's team won, Kohli was overjoyed, showing his pride and support for their achievement. 

RCB's pre-season "unbox" event was renowned as one of the best pre season events in IPL history. While it typically focused on the men's team, Virat Kohli pushed for the women's team to take center stage. Kohli and the men's team gave the women 'a guard of honor', showing their support. It was a proud moment as Smriti Mandhana and her teammates walked with pride. Even international stars like Ellyse Perry and Sophie Molineux joined the celebration via video call, highlighting the unity within RCB.
