Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli, who was excited by the victory against Rajasthan Royals due to the stormy innings of AB de Villiers, known as Mr. 360 degree, de Villiers. Commended on Saturday, he said that according to him, he is the best player of the IPL.
Bengaluru chased down a challenging target of 178 runs by Rajasthan, thanks to an explosive inning of 55 not out with the help of one four and six sixes in De Villiers’ 22 balls to win the match by seven wickets for 179 for three in 19.4 overs.
Virat Kohli said, “Everyone in the team is contributing individually and we have been able to do so consistently in the tournament, so we have 12 points.” I am very happy right now and after that, we will get a break of three days. To be honest, there is a worry in chasing the target because you do not know how much ball de Villiers will get to play. Gurkeerat Singh Mann is also credited with the victory, who stayed with de Villiers and made a significant boundary.
The captain said, no matter which bowler is in front, de Villiers will do what he wants to do. He is a batsman who is always ready to play according to his circumstances. In my view, he is the best player in the IPL.
He said, when they are at the crease, the morale of the opposition team automatically decreases and they feel less likely to win. This is good enough for de Villiers. Because of them, the team feels that we can never lag behind. Our position for our opening pair strategy is clear.
Virat said, young Devdutt Padikkal is also batting brilliantly and Aaron Finch has also played a few innings. We make our strategy based on the situation. Our bowling has also been good this season. We were under pressure, but the players made a strong comeback. Chris Morris is the best. Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar and Isuru Udana have also done well.
