Nation first! Virat’s focus on WTC finals despite playing IPL, says after the match…
Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore clashed in the Indian Premier League on Thursday (May 18). In this match, RCB won by 8 wickets. Centurion Virat Kohli became the hero of RCB’s victory. Virat completed a brilliant century to keep his team in the play-off race. Speaking after receiving the man of the match award, Virat clarified that his real focus is the final match of the World Test Championship.
In the match held at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad, RCB were challenged to 187 runs to win. RCB achieved the target with four balls to spare thanks to some aggressive batting from Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis. Vira completed his century off 62 balls with 12 fours and 4 sixes. He was awarded the man of the match award for this innings. Speaking at that time, Virat said,
“I like to play according to the situation. I didn’t put any emphasis on playing unconventional shots. I don’t want to lose my wicket by playing shots like that. After IPL we want to play Test cricket. That is why it is necessary to emphasize on technique. I get a lot of confidence when I make an impact in an important match.”
Just ten days after the end of the IPL, the Indian team has to play the final match of the World Test Championship. The match will be played against Australia from June 7 at The Oval. The Indian team has reached the finals of this tournament for the second time in a row. In 2021, New Zealand defeated the Indian team and won the title of the tournament for the first time. At that time, Virat Kohli was the captain of the Indian team.
