Virat Kohli has been a continued existence with the Royal Challengers Bangalore ever since their inception and during such a prolonged stay at the franchise, he has built himself an empire and most importantly, a pocket full of memories. Not only has the memories been overwhelming for Kohli himself, but the players surrounding him have also been moved by those remarkable memories.
Ever since the inception of IPL, Kohli has been battling it out hard for the Royal Challengers Bangalore but the elusive trophy has been a question mark for the former Indian captain ever since he has been around at the center. However, despite the dearth of centuries, former Indian cricketer Mohammed Kaif highlighted an incident where Kohli showcased his true hunger to deliver the glistening numbers.
Here is what Mohammed Kaif had to say about Virat Kohli’s hunger
Talking to Star Sports, Mohammed Kaif said, “There was this one time when Virat Kohli got out the same way he was dismissed today (vs KKR on Thursday). I was sitting right beside him, and I thought he will definitely throw his bat in anger. And yes, when he came, he threw his bat straightaway, removed his pad. I was sitting beside him, and he said, ‘I’m going to score big the next time.”
He further added, “In the next innings, he scored an unbeaten 72. Imagine. He had gone out, and he was upset. But he forgot that before coming to bat in the next match, scored 72. Then, I realised that this player is special.”
This is what happened between Virat Kohli and the Kolkata Knight Riders last night
Kohli had his own challenges in the second game against Knights of the ongoing season but he was phenomenal touch in the IPL opener. It was the spinner, Sunil Narine who proved to be the downfall of Kohli as he rocked through the defences of VK with an absolute stunner that marked RCB’s beginning of the end yesternight.
