Virat Kohli-Faf du Plessis' batting form will keep RCB in good stead in IPL 2023: Imran Tahir
The first half of IPL 2023 has witnessed some high-adrenaline contests between all ten teams. The contest between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders kicks off the reverse fixtures on Wednesday.
RCB lost the first game between the two teams in the IPL 2023 by a big margin of 81 runs when they played at Eden Gardens.
The hosts will be aiming to settle the scores at their home ground and pick two crucial points as well.
Former South Africa cricketer Imran Tahir believes Virat Kohli will have to continue to be the backbone of RCB and he needs to bat long in the upcoming games.
Speaking on Star Sports' Cricket Live, Imran Tahir said, "Virat Kohli is a class batsman. It has always been difficult for me to get him out. I want him to score a lot of runs in the IPL.
"His team has high hopes for him and for this reason, Virat should think about staying on the wicket for a little longer."
