The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 has been a platform for many debates, one of which revolves around the strike rate of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) star player, Virat Kohli. Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif has voiced his opinion on this matter, urging critics to end the debate.

Kohli, known for his aggressive batting and consistent performance, has been under scrutiny for his strike rate. Critics argue that his scoring rate is not up to the mark compared to other aggressive batsmen in the T20 format. However, Kaif believes that such debates should cease, especially after Kohli’s recent performance against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Dharamsala.

Virat Kohli unleashes a blistering knock against PBKS

In the match against PBKS, Kohli scored a remarkable 92 runs off just 47 balls, striking at a rate of 195.74. His innings was instrumental in RCB’s 60-run victory over PBKS. Despite being on the verge of scoring a century, Kohli got out in the 18th over while attempting a six. Kaif highlighted this moment, stating that Kohli’s intent to score quickly, even in the nervous nineties, should put an end to the strike rate debate.

Kaif took to social media to express his views, tweeting, “Virat Kohli 92 for 47 ball gets out trying to hit a six in the 18th over. Strike rate and intent debate around the team man should stop now”. He emphasized that Kohli is a team player, implying that his focus is more on contributing to the team’s success rather than personal milestones.
