Post-match: who said what?

The firm of RCB was poor from the beginning of the tournament and there was a lot of criticism over that. After this match, Virat slammed the doubters. Kohli slammed his doubters and questioned their position to make statements ‘from the box’. Kohli pointed out how after playing for 15 years, he knows his job – to ensure his team wins – with most of it stemming from muscle memory.

However, this statement didn’t go well with the fans. They are not happy with Virat’s attitude. However, former Indian players  Mohammad Kaif and Navjot Sidhu backed Virat.

“All I hear about these days is strike-rate. People are after Kohli. Boss, between overs 7 and 15, it’s obvious to slow down. The economy-rate of a spinner is lower than a fast bowler. Why? Because they bowl the middle overs,” Kaif said.

“People think Kohli is God. He is a human, so will play like a human too. Rather than nitpick, why don’t we look at the fact that the guy has 80 centuries. That’s his strength and weakness, he has none. And if you look carefully, today he played off the backfoot and lofted the spinners. Tell me how many can do that? Hitting a left-arm spinner against the spin… how many can do that? So Kohli has a presence, he cherishes his wicket too. What else is he supposed to do?” mentioned Sidhu.
