Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) opener Devdutt Padikkal praised team captain Virat Kohli. Padikkal credited Kohli for his good batting in the previous season. He said that Virat’s level of play is very high. When you bat with them, you also have to raise the level of your game to be equal to them. Because of this my batting also improved. He (Kohli) makes the game very easy.
Padikkal said in the interview that Kohli understands the game better. They know when to take a chance against the bowler and when to stop themselves. When a batsman with such deep understanding plays with you, your work becomes very easy from the other end. Padikkal also praised AB de Villiers. He said that de Villiers has a great passion for the game.
