Hyderabad: Royal Challengers Bangalore’s star batsman Virat Kohli said that he does not care about what outsiders say after scoring a century against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL T20.
Virat Kohli’s 63-ball 100 helped Royal Challengers Bangalore easily reach the target of 187 runs in the IPL T20 cricket series yesterday against Hyderabad. And with this win, the Bengaluru team also retained the chance to advance to the play-off round.
After this match, Virat Kohli said: I don’t look back on past runs. I’ve already put myself through a lot of stress. This is my 6th IPL century. Sometimes I don’t give myself credit even when I play great games. So, I don’t care about what anyone from outside says. Because that’s their opinion.
Know how to play according to the situation of the game and win. I’ve been doing it for a long time. I pride myself on playing to the situation. I’m not one to take fancy shots. Play 12 months a year. For me, I don’t want to play fancy shots and throw away my wicket. After IPL comes Test cricket. I have to stay true to my technique and find ways to win the game for my team.
Du Plessis is on another level. I played calmly in both games. At that time, it was not possible to bring the batting done in the net practice to the field. I bat with du Plessis the way I batted with de Villiers.
We have a good understanding of how to take the game forward. Together we have brought about a great change in the top order for the Royal Challengers. It has also had an impact. This is what Virat Kohli said.
Having played 13 matches, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team has secured 14 points with 7 wins and has advanced to the 4th position in the table. Bengaluru will face defending champions Gujarat Titans at the top of the points table tomorrow (21st) in their last league game. If they win this match, Bengaluru team will enter the play-off round.
