IPL 2024: Virat Kohli is currently playing IPL after a long break. From the first season till now, Kohli has been playing only for RCB. Meanwhile, runs are coming out of Kohli's bat this year too, but even then his team is not able to register victory. RCB has played 4 matches so far and has won only one of them. Meanwhile, is there any kind of pressure on Kohli? If we talk about Australian player Steve Smith, then it is according to him.

Steve Smith said, other batsmen are not getting support

Former Australia captain Steve Smith says that due to the failure of the rest of the batsmen of RCB i.e. Royal Challengers Bangalore, there is a lot of pressure on Virat Kohli and his teammates should support him by performing better. Steve Smith, who is part of the commentary team of Star Sports, in a special conversation with PTI on the channel's studio, said that the rest of the RCB batsmen should support Kohli. By doing this they can bring the team on the path to victory.

Kohli bats according to the situation

Steve Smith was once an important member of the IPL, but for some time now no team has given him importance. After this, this year he is doing commentary for Star Sports. He said that the top and middle order batsmen should help him. Virat Kohli cannot make every match alone. Meanwhile, it is also being discussed that Kohli is batting very slowly, that is, his strike rate is very low. On this, Steve Smith said that no player in the world can understand the situation better than Kohli. Kohli is a great player. He understands the situation very well and bats accordingly. In this matter he has no equal in the world.

Kohli has become the highest run scorer in this IPL season

Virat Kohli has so far scored 203 runs in four matches in this season's IPL. His average is 67.67, while he is batting at a strike rate of 140.97. During these four innings he has also scored two half-centuries. He is currently the highest run scorer in this tournament this year. After Kohli, the highest run scorer for RCB is Dinesh Karthik, who has scored 90 runs in four matches. Whereas Anuj Rawat has scored 73 runs. Team captain Faf Du Plessis has been able to score only 65 runs so far, while Cameron Green has scored 63 runs. Glenn Maxwell's condition is even worse, he has scored only 31 runs in four matches.
