Virat Kohli believes he is playing his ‘best T20 cricket again’ after smashing back-to-back centuries at the conclusion of the league stage in IPL 2023 and assisting Royal Challengers Bangalore to post a great total of 197 runs against Gujrat Titians in 20 overs. Kohli remained unbeaten after amassing 101 off 61 deliveries and reviving RCB when they were 133 for 5 when he did so. During the final six overs of a must-win match, he scored impressively to give his team a formidable score.
After smashing his seventh century in IPL play on Sunday, Kohli responded to critics who had questioned his T20 form and approach. When Ravi Shastri inquired during the halftime interview about his Twenty-Twenty form:
According to HT, Kohli stated, “Many people believe my T20 cricket is diminishing, but I don’t feel that way at all. I believe I am once again playing my finest Twenty20 cricket. I’m simply having fun; this is how I play Twenty20 cricket. If the situation permits, I try to hit gaps, a number of boundaries, and the big ones in the end.”
You must assess the circumstance and rise to the occasion: Virat Kohli
As I have stated in the past, “strike rates and all of these other factors… I take great pride in reading the situation and rising to the occasion when the situation calls for it, which is something I’ve been doing for quite some time. I’m really pleased with my current performance and how I’m batting in the middle.” Virat Kohli added further
In contrast, Shubman Gills’ unbeaten 104 off 52 balls knocked RCB out of the tournament with an unbeaten 104 off 52 balls in RCB’s match against GT in Bangalore. Gujrat Titians tracked down a 198-run target with five balls remaining, and with 20 points, they finished comfortably in first place.
