Virat Kohli managed to score a half-century in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s game against Delhi Capitals in the ongoing IPL 2023 but his strike rate has been a matter of discussion this season. The 34-year-old scored 55 off 46 as the visiting team posted 181 after 20 overs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
“Will always have this debate because it is the Virat Kohli template. It’s the way he bats. His career strike rate is around 130. His ability to continue to churn out runs is quite extraordinary,” Moody told ESPNcricinfo.
“But maybe he also felt that whilst the other end was flying along, his role was to feed that other end. But in my view, particularly with the impact player, the game has really moved on from that style of cricket. That’s why we are seeing so many totals go to 200+. There is no such role. We all need to be going here at 150+ without a doubt because we have the comfort of depth,” the 57-year-old added.
