On Wednesday, April 26, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will play Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL). Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj are getting ready for the match. RCB is currently ranked fifth in the IPL 2023 points standings with eight points. For KKR, who enters the match having lost four straight, this will be a game they must win.
Siraj and Virat Kohli sparred in the nets before the game. The fast bowler twice defeated the top hitter for RCB. While going mad and attacking Siraj, Kohli, on the other side, had the last laugh.
On Wednesday, RCB posted a one-minute clip of Siraj bowling to Kohli on Twitter. Initially, the 29-year-old fast bowler defeated Kohli twice, first outside off and then confounding the former RCB captain. On the other side, Kohli shook his head in agreement before launching a full-throttle attack on the bowler.
At the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in October 2022, he blasted numerous memorable straight sixes, most notably one off Pakistan’s Haris Rauf. Insanely aligning himself and launching lofted shots at the bowler, Kohli lost all control. At the conclusion, Siraj acknowledged that he had been bowling to one of the game’s GOATs.
We all know what King Kohli is capable of when he is in top form. Siraj Siraj claimed that the way he bowled to Kohli was representative of how the batsman performs in powerplays. Additionally, he said that if a ball is new, there will be some swing and that everyone is aware of Kohli’s potential when he is on form. He continued by saying that the RCB batter smacked him all over M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
“I continued to use the same strategy in the play as I do elsewhere. There will undoubtedly be some swing when the ball is new. After that, King Kohli can do anything when he’s in top form, as we all know. Siraj claimed, “He beat me all around the Chinnaswamy.
With 13 wickets in seven games, including 3/22 against the Lucknow Super Giants and 4/21 against the Punjab Kings, Siraj has been RCB’s top bowler in the current IPL season. in the other hand, Kohli is now ranked fifth in the IPL 2023 Orange Caps list with 279 runs and four half-centuries.
