His commanding presence at the crease and ability to accelerate the run rate significantly influenced the outcome of the match, leaving a lasting impact on spectators and opponents alike.

Virat Kohli, The POTM of Tonight:

Following his captivating performance against Punjab Kings, Virat Kohli was named the Player of the Match for the evening. Kohli’s charismatic innings played a pivotal role in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s victory, earning him well-deserved recognition for his outstanding contribution to the team’s success.

Virat Kohli said, “ For me it’s still quality over quantity. For me it works really well. Also the understanding of the game allows you to practice less, just try to replicate what I have done in the past. Still aiming to improve aspects of the game that you want to get batter at. It’s an evolving process. I brought out the slogsweep against the spinners. I didn’t practice it, I know I have hit it the past. Always looking to expose that side of the field against spin. I know I need to take risks, it needs a bit of conviction. I have been managing to stay ahead of that thought.”

He further said, “ I am trying to keep up with the strike rate for me and the team. The only way to go through a tournament is to be honest with ourselves. We had those losses on the trot, we just had a honest conversation. We needed to pull up our socks. That game against KKR went down to the wire. We wanted to play for our self respect. We just can’t go out there and play in such a way and disappoint our fans. The confidence is back and we are on a roll. We wouldn’t have to depend on several other aspects (had we played better earlier in the tournament.)”
