New Delhi. Royal Challengers Bangalore, decorated with Virat Kohli, is fighting to enter the playoffs of IPL 2023. Bangalore is at 5th position with 12 points. He has to play 2 more matches against Hyderabad and Gujarat. It is necessary for Bangalore to win both the matches. Bangalore will take the field against Hyderabad on Thursday. Kohli will descend with the intention of stacking Hyderabad on at least a score.
Kohli is preparing to do that work in Hyderabad, which he could not do in Jaipur against Rajasthan Royals. Before the match, a photo of Kohli is becoming quite viral, in which he was seen bowling in the training session. Kohli has bowled in a few matches before as well, but his bowling practice in the net session caught everyone’s attention as he bowled wearing pads.
Big win over Rajasthan
Along with this photo of Kohli, his statement also started becoming quite viral, which he had said after Bangalore’s 112-run victory over Rajasthan. Actually the match between Bangalore and Rajasthan was played in Jaipur 5 days ago. Before this match, Bangalore’s net run rate was very bad. Along with the win, he also had to improve his run rate. In such a situation, RCB batting first scored 171 runs for 5 wickets.

Stacked on 40 runs
