Bangalore. Virat Kohli played a brilliant century in the match played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Giants. After playing this inning, it was expected that the team’s place in the playoffs would be confirmed, although Shubman Gill’s century innings destroyed the intentions of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Gujarat beat Bangalore by six wickets. At the same time, something happened during this match played between Gujarat and Bangalore, which has increased the problems of the Indian cricket team.
In fact, Royal Challenger Bangalore’s star player Virat Kohli had suffered a knee injury during the match played against Gujarat. Although it is a matter of relief that this injury is not worrying. This information has been shared by the head coach of the team, Sanjay Bangar. RCB is out of the IPL after losing to Gujarat by six wickets in the last league match. Kohli took a brilliant catch of Vijay Shankar after scoring a century but in the meantime his knee was injured.
The physio came to help Kohli but the star batsman had to leave the field and sat in the dugout for the last five overs. “Yes, he has got a minor knee injury but I don’t think it is serious,” Bangar said at the post-match press conference. Kohli is in fine form right now. He scored centuries in consecutive matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans.
Bangar said, “He scored hundreds in consecutive matches within four days. He is a player who not only wants to give his all while batting but also while fielding. He ran a lot. In the match played a few days ago, he stayed on the field for 40 overs and here he spent 35 overs on the field.
Kohli is among seven Indian players who will leave for England on Tuesday for the final of the World Test Championship against Australia, starting June 7. Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara, who is playing county cricket, will join the team in England itself. Meanwhile, Gujarat Titans star spinner Rashid Khan said that in T20 batsmen doing empty balls (dot balls) in favorable conditions is also like taking wickets. Rashid said, “IPL and T20 cricket is like taking every empty ball wicket. I take it as a wicket because the boundaries are small and the batsman wants to play big shots on every ball. So while bowling in the middle overs, I try to bowl as many empty balls as possible.
