Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) cancelled their only practice session before the Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) due to security reasons.

Moreover, there was also no press conference, which is unusual on the eve of a crucial IPL knockout game.

Officially no clarification on the development has been given so far. However, as per reports published in some sections of media, the primary reason behind RCB cancelling their practice session and both sides not holding a press conference was the security threat to Virat Kohli. 

The Gujarat Police reportedly arrested four men from the Ahmedabad airport on Monday night on suspicion of terror activities. The police reportedly recovered arms, suspicious videos and text messages after searching the hideout of the four accused.

Following the development, the information was shared with RR and RCB. RR did not act. However, RCB informed the security personnel that there would be no practice session. The reports claimed that RCB did not give any official reason for their sudden decision to cancel the practice session.
