It’s been all Virat Kohli’s show in Indian Premier League 2016. The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper has smashed many records in this season. The southpaw has shown why he is one of the best in business and can take the baton from MS Dhoni in near future in all editions.
It was a rain curtailed match at Bangalore, where the hosts need to win their tie against party spoiler Kings XI Punjab to keep their hopes alive in the tournament. It was again Virat Kohli, who stood up to the occasion and thundered to his fourth century of the season in just 47 balls. Kohli scored 113 runs off 50 balls with 12 sixes and 8 fours. This season the right handed scored 865 runs in 13 matches with average is a staggering 86.50 and strike-rate 155.01.
It seems Virat is the new Bradman of limited cricket of the new area. The Royal’s skipper has touched new heights which no other batsmen have done, from four centuries to over 800 runs to 4000 runs. The man has got all the shorts up his sleeves and can score at any pace.
Kohli showed his class from his first shot when he drove Sandeep Sharma bisecting the point and cover. Then it was all Virat’s show after that- cuts, pulls, drive and a platter of sweets for spectators. Virat was ruthless against Kings XI and deposited every bad ball out of the park.
This man has all the class and caliber to surpass batting greats Sachin Tnedulkar and Don Bradman in near future. At the age of 25, India’s Test skipper is giving his best and in next few years he can be on the top of the world.
