Virat Kohli and Rashid Khan have a lot in common. Apart from their similar looks, their body language is also quite similar, mainly thanks to the mustache. They both smile a lot, and also bark repeatedly (presumably Kohli is more than just a shed). Another similarity is his mastery in his trades, with Virat Kohli being one of the best batsmen in the world and Rashid Khan as the leg-spinner. Furthermore, neither suffer damage nor reverse well.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad started their IPL 2020 campaign in Dubai.
Kohli, with 5,412 runs in 177 matches, boot from five centuries and a strike rate of 131.61, would like to repeat the 2016 season when he scored four of his five IPL centuries, so long as the final result is different.
Rashid Khan has made a name for himself as the leading leg-spinner in the business and the IPL has claimed him to take 555 wickets in 46 matches, with a sensational economy of 6.55, so sending him for runs will be quite a challenge.
The tournament is young, and will be only the third game, so what remains of all the vaginas in store remains to be seen. But looking at a level playing field, Virat-Kohl-Rashid Khan will have to face.
