He added, “So, his ability to just win the game from any situation and while Virat’s at the crease, you know the game’s not done. So yeah, he’s been a bit of a pain to play against in a way. But yeah, it’s always nice to witness someone do something so special and he’s done it on numerous occasions.”

“Yeah, it’s extremely annoying and he’s done it on too many occasions, so yeah, it’s always nice to see the back of him. So, but yeah, we’ve seen some incredible innings when he’s played against us as well. So, it’s nice to watch when he’s in full flight, but you’d wish him to do it against another opposition.”

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is currently participating in the IPL 2024, representing the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). Kohli has been in exceptional form with the bat, leading the tournament’s run-scoring chart with 316 runs in five games. His performance has been crucial for RCB, although the team has struggled to secure victories, currently placed 9th in the points table.
