Mohammed Siraj praises Virat’s sportsmanship and willingness to complete at the best level for the team, saying that he always teaches young people to put the country first and play for their team and country.

Virat Kohli hasn’t had a fantastic IPL 2022 season, and his squad was struggling to score runs until their final league game against the Gujarat Titans. The 33-year-old hit his second fifty of the season in that encounter, scoring 73 runs off 54 balls in an innings that contained eight fours and two sixes.

He had scored 236 runs at an average of 18.1 in the previous 13 games, and his only other half-century came against the Titans.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore will be expecting that their former captain can lead the team to victory in the playoffs. Kohli’s strike rate of 118 has to improve as well. The great hitter will want to contribute significantly to his team’s victory while playing in Eden Gardens, one of his favourite venues.

‘Virat Kohli is a batsman who is never out of form’: Siraj

Kohli, Siraj believes, cannot be labelled as a batter who is out of form. “A batter like Virat Bhaiya never appears to be out of form.” He constantly prioritizes the squad and strives to score as many runs as possible to help the team win the game. He (Virat) always advises all the youth to put the country first and play for their team and country.”

“He (Virat) was constantly on my side.” “I didn’t play well for RCB at first, but he kept me in the team,” Siraj said.

In the Eliminator, RCB will face Lucknow Super Giants on May 25 (Wednesday) at the famous Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata.
