Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will have to bring their ‘A’ game to beat Gujarat Titans (GT) on 21st May (Sunday) at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Bengaluru if the side wants to qualify for the playoffs. All eyes would be on the star batter Virat Kohli who struck a sensational ton against SRH in the previous clash. Virat Kohli looked as if he was on a mission and was seen taking calculative risks.

It won’t be wrong to say that it was the spell of RCB’s star pacer Mohammed Siraj who gave away only 17 runs in his 4-over spell and took 1 wicket on a belter of a track. RCB have shown that their bowling attack may be inexperienced but they have the knack of breaking crucial partnerships which is invaluable.

RCB are placed at 4th position on the points table with 14 points from 13 matches with an NRR of +0.18. RCB’s over-reliance on Faf, Virat & Maxwell could backfire in this do-or-die match as GT’s bowlers can easily create havoc irrespective of the surface.

GT have secured a top 2 table finish even if they lose the contest against RCB. GT’s dashing batter Shubman Gill is on a roll and has looked unstoppable. The batter though would be tested against the lethal speedster Mohammed Siraj & Josh Hazlewood as we can expect a cracker of a contest.

Virat Kohli will extend his T20 career if he bats in this fashion – Sanjay Manjrekar

Sanjay Manjrekar was having an interaction with ESPNcricinfo. Sanjay Manjrekar stated that Virat Kohli looked like a completely different batter who was keen on rotating the strike and capitalising on loose deliveries. Virat Kohli pointed out that the ton scored by Virat Kohli will not only extend his T20 career but RCB looks like a different team.

“I love the template with which he batted. I wish and pray that he continues in the same way, which is about trying to maximise returns on every ball. Sometimes, you wonder whether he sets a long-term target for himself, and in the process, loses control on the present. After he hit a couple of boundaries, you see him taking singles and prolong his innings,” said Sanjay Manjrekar.

“Tonight, he just came in thinking different. I don’t know whether it was his own decision or someone spoke to him, but if Virat bats in this fashion, not only he’s going to extend his T20 career, but suddenly, RCB looks a different team. Now, you got Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, and Virat Kohli batting at the same kind of strike rate. That’s ominous,” he added.
