‘Fire… or will be fired!’ Netizens’ brutal opinion on Virat Kohli


Share post:


New Delhi, April 10: Former Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli may have been leading the Orange Cap race in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 so far, but his innings throughout have failed to impress the netizens.
In five matches, the stylish Indian batter has scored 316 runs with two half-centuries and one hundred. RCB is currently in the ninth position of the IPL points tally as they have lost four matches out of five.
For the record, RCB have never won any IPL title, even when Kohli was leading the team. He then left the job and Faf Du Plessis took the charge, but the results weren’t favorable even after that.
Kohli single handedly performed for RCB but his batting style received negative comments from the fans on social media. His strike rate of 146.29 is talk of the town especially when young cricketers are way ahead in this department, considering the fast nature of the format.
Kohli’s 67-ball ton against Rajasthan Royals was the joint-slowest in the tournament history and one that came in a losing cause. And this didn’t go down well with cricket fanatics.“Such a strike rate is dangerous for your team in T20. Kohli must fire or he will be fired from the national squad, T20 World Cup approaching,” wrote one on X.
Another wrote, “Virat Kohli Strike rate in this IPL is causing more damage to them!”
“He is a tuk tuk player,” wrote one.
Amid all this criticism, Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma has quashed them all and come out in support of the RCB superstar.Rajkumar posted a video on his Instagram account of a TV debate and extended his support to Kohli. “Agenda as they call it, he knows how and when to perform,” he captioned the video.
Virat Kohli has been in exceptional form in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) season so far. He has played 5 matches and scored 316 runs, with an average of 105.33 and a strike rate of over 146. Kohli’s performance has been crucial for his team, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), as he has been the highest run-scorer in the tournament. Kohli’s performance has been highlighted by his exceptional batting skills, which have been on display throughout the season. He has scored his eighth century in the IPL against the Rajasthan Royals in the 19th match of the season. (PTI)
