RCB has suffered a horrendous fate this season, nothing like last season where Virat Kohli single handedly took his team to the finals.
AFter coming back from shoulder injury Virat missed first few matches and looked completely out of touch . But prior to Champions Trophy, the right handed batsman showed some of his skills well off on field with the last league match.As a batsman, he has managed 250 runs from nine matches, with 64 being his highest score, which is quite low by his standards.
He played one of his best shots tonight on ground specially that six of Zaheer Khan. A clear case of a missed yorker. Ends up becoming a juicy full toss and Kohli stands and swishes across the line. Several rows into his favoured mid-wicket stands. With the start they got with Kohli and Gayle laying the foundation, the explosion that was expected at the end went missing. Delhi have to be credited, their bowlers found both kinds of swing – conventional at the start and reverse towards the end.
After long a half ton and well played shots . Shots looking good for eyes and stealing the show. Already preping for Champions Trophy? Hope he carries on that form straight right into champions trophy.
