Cameron Green lauded star batter Virat Kohli for playing a “vintage” innings to keep Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the race to the IPL Playoffs.

Kohli made full use of the three reprieves, including one on zero, to make a 47-ball 92 that set the tone for their 60-run win over Punjab Kings in a must-win match here on Thursday. “He played the vintage Virat that we all know. It was beautiful to watch from the other end. That’s the beauty of having Virat in your team. As opposition, you can’t give him that many chances,” said Green.

The Australian all-rounder, who helped himself to a 27-ball 46, said Kohli was trying to be aggressive and the drops did not affect him. “He’s always going to make you hurt, especially if you drop him three or four times. Early in his innings, he was trying to be really aggressive. I think he looked like after a couple of dropped catches, he didn’t have much to lose,” added Green.

The Bangalore side still need to win their remaining two matches against Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings at home. Green said the team has done well to win four matches on the bounce after a string of defeats. “Yeah, I think what we’ve done really well is just look at the next game. I think, obviously, at the start of the tournament you can always look further at what’s coming up, where are we on the table. “But I think that’s the beauty of where we were at [now], we kind of were pushed into a corner and all we could really do was focus on the next game,” he added.
