All about understanding the situation – Virat Kohli
What 1998 was to Sachin Tendulkar, 2016 has been to Virat Kohli. Kohli has played like an unstoppable beast this year and no bowler has been able to escape unscathed from Kohli’s fury. The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper was at it yet again as he single-handedly chased down 192 against the Rising Pune Supergiants.
Kohli went on to register his 2nd T20 ton and the way he batted this evening, he genuinely stands out as an example for all aspiring cricketers. His work ethic, commitment, and passion remain unmatched at this moment and Kohli is surely in a league of his own. His ability to scale down huge totals is simply impeccable.
Post the game, Kohli admitted that he goes about his task while understanding the game situation. “It’s important to keep your nerves in check. You can lose what you need to do, in the process otherwise. When you are chasing 12-13 an over, it’s important to not get bogged down despite losing wickets. It’s all about understanding the situation. I hadn’t hit any T20 hundred before this, and now I have 2 this season. I don’t really think about these things, the victory matters far more. Yeah, I do look at the scoreboard. It’s important to assess the scenarios,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation.
Adding to the game against the Supergiants, Kohli said, “I was pretty determined tonight. Last time in Hyderabad we had to chase down 192 runs and I was pumped up. Tonight I had the motivation to go the extra mile, as we need to win 6 out of the remaining 7. The chase wasn’t easy, especially as we needed to find the boundary frequently. Superb contributions from Rahul and Watto,” said Kohli.
