It was a different Virat Kohli batting at the pitch of Wankhede Stadium on Thursday as he looked in his vintage touch. During his 73-run knock, he hit eight fours and two sixes and the confidence was upfront. Kohli and his fellow opener Faf du Plessis stitched 115 runs for the opening wicket to provide RCB a solid platform in chase of GT’s 168/5.
Gujarat Titans batted first in the encounter and scored 168 runs which is a good score on a relatively slow wicket. However, Gujarat Titans struggled to gain momentum throughout the innings. Rashid Khan provided some towards the end of the innings but a team like RCB would’ve have preferred the total anyway.
