Virat Kohli is enjoying a sensational campaign with the bat in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024). While Royal Challengers Bengaluru struggled in the first half of the season before turning things around, their former captain has been performing consistently with the bat.

No player has scored more than Virat Kohli in IPL 2024. So far, he has scored 661 runs in 13 games with the help of one century and five half-centuries. The former India skipper has scored his runs at an average of 66 and a strike rate of more than 155.

He will be looking to maintain the same form in the do-or-die clash against Chennai Super Kings on Saturday (May 18). With RCB in desperate need of a big win to make it to the playoffs, they need their talismanic batsman to deliver. And ahead of the huge clash, Virat Kohli has revealed one skill of other players that he would like to have.

In a video posted by Jio Cinema, the former India skipper was told the names of different players and was asked to name the skill that he would like to have from them. He was first asked about Rohit Sharma and in reply, the right-handed batsman said he would like to have the India skipper's pull shot.

When asked about MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli said 'his field placement'. From Heinrich Klaasen, the Delhi star said that he would like to have the skill of 'the backfoot six he hits against spin straight down the ground'. When asked about KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli said 'the left-handed catch down the leg side' and 'yorkers' respectively. He finished the interview by saying that he would like to have the athleticism of Ravindra Jadeja.

Talking about the upcoming game between RCB and CSK, it will be a do-or-die affair for the former. RCB not only need to win the game but win it by such a margin that they manage to finish the league stage with a better net run rate than CSK. Only in that case, RCB would be able to qualify for the playoffs.
