Irfan Pathan considers Virat as biggest IPL superstar


Virat Kohli arrived at his adopted second home, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, after 1427 days in the IPL, and the talismanic India cricketer didn’t disappoint the passionate Royal Challengers Bangalore fans who turned up in large numbers to watch their team in action from the ground.
Virat Kohli’s masterful knock, along with captain Faf du Plessis and their third-century stand in the IPL, ensured Royal Challengers Bangalore didn’t have to break much sweat and claimed an emphatic 8-wicket win over Mumbai Indians. Former cricketers praised King Kohli for his superb knock against a high-quality Mumbai Indians bowling lineup.
Speaking on a sports channel, Irfan Pathan said, “Virat Kohli is the biggest superstar of the TATA IPL. He’s shining brightly like a full moon, and Indian fans can’t be happier. He’s started this season on a positive note. Runs were not coming from his bat last year, he was getting out in the most unlucky of fashions, but he did not stop. The fans kept faith in him and he’s paying back. There can be no bigger news than Virat Kohli’s return to form for RCB.”
The match-up between Virat Kohli and Jofra Archer was one of the talking points ahead of the game. The Indian batting superstar ended up victorious in round one by not getting dismissed to the speed merchant from England.
“Virat once again showed why he is a great player. He sets milestones just like Sachin Tendulkar used to do. Virat’s victory in the battle against Jofra Archer is the victory of Indian cricket, “ Irfan Pathan said. Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif lauded Virat Kohli and his quick running between the wickets with skipper Faf du Plessis and claimed it should be a lesson for young cricketers.
