Kohli hails Paddikal century
Virat Kohli was mightily impressed with his young opening partner in the RCB lineup. Devdutt Paddikal, who notched up 400 plus runs in IPL 2020, is poised to do even better in the current edition going by his current ominous form. After receiving from covid and missing out on the initial game, Paddikal has looked in sensational form and scored a dazzling match winning century against Rajasthan Royals to finish the game with many balls to spare.
Kohli said that he had the best seat in the house to watch Paddikal’s batting and since he was in such fine rhythm, Kohli was intent on giving him more strike by playing second fiddle.
Kohli also revealed the conversation he had with Paddikal as the southpaw was closing in on his century.
Kohli hails Paddikal century “We spoke about the 100, he said finish it off. He said many more to come, I told him you tell me that after you get the first one. I want him to build from here and really help the team. He deserved to get the hundred today, flawless innings,” Kohli said of Padikkal.
With Paddikal in such glorious touch and the middle order firing the RCB is looking like the team to beat in IPL 2021
