It is a bit like the ridiculous narrative of the Sachin Tendulkar era. It was quoted that India won’t win if Sachin Tendulkar scores big.

But the narrative is almost vague from the other side as, on the same day Jos Buttler also knocked the century in 58 balls at the strike rate of 172.41.

Where Sanju Samson gave knock of 69 with a strike rate of 164.29, Whereas Buttler is aggressive batter who need a back up form the other end.

Here RCB faced a problematic situation, Where Faf du  Plessis, Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green. through this RCB had Virat as the only batter to kick off runs for the side, if he had played fearlessly then there would have been more runs on the board.

But the situations demand was then was a stability for the side.

There Virat gave good back to the side with out losing his wickets. That could be the reason for the slowest century that is trending right now on the social media.

Kohli’s strike rate dipped when he played the off spinners like Ashwin, and there were no left arm spinners to chain him down. He scored 14 runs with out hitting a boundary.

Where as he was more aggressive against the left arm spinners like Yuzvendra Chahal in total he took off 24 runs in 10 balls.
