Virat Kohli claimed that Royal Challengers Bengaluru's win over Chennai Super Kings last night was God's plan in a post-match video interview. 

RCB earned qualification in the IPL 2024 playoffs with an emphatic and sensational 27-run victory over the reigning champions at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium. With that, MS Dhoni's potential final league stage match of IPL history ended up as a loss but for another Indian cricket icon - Virat Kohli, reaching the final 4 was nothing less than Euphoria. 

Virat Kohli had been in terrific form since the start of the season but it took his teammates a long time to get their respective rhythms. And it came just at the right time and just when RCB needed. Call it a miracle or call it the power of belief, call it whatever you want but this was a moment that people will barely forget when they talk about the best moments in IPL history. 

Virat Kohli talks about his emotions after the win 

Virat Kohli was overflowing with emotions throughout the course of the match in front of all the home supporters. He was aggressive as usual and was celebrating every single CSK wicket as if his life depended on it. He was literally giving his all on the field and it depicted that he didn't want to have any regrets about his own efforts later. 

His energy, aggression, and determination to win pushed his teammates to give it their all as well, and at the end of it all, victory would have tasted sweet. But none of that could have happened without the relentless and "honest" hard work behind the scenes when the team was perhaps at its lowest. 

RCB and Virat Kohli had gone an entire month without winning and that's something so unlikely of the former franchise captain. In the second half of the season, Bengaluru players came out as different beasts and started to win matches whose streak is still going on and they'll hope it ends next season. 

The reason why RCB reached the top 4 was not only through God's plan but also due to the truthfulness they had during training sessions. And towards the end of it, they received what they deserved. That the team should not over-celebrate because they still have more matches to play and they should focus on the next one, feels Virat Kohli. 

"God's got a plan. You just have to be honest to what you doing and I think we were pretty honest with our hard work and we got the rewards. I don't wanna say anything more than this we gotta focus on the next one." - Kohli said in an interview.
