The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter, Virat Kohli will be in action at his home ground on Saturday evening when they will be facing Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match no. 50. Ahead of the much-awaited clash, former India pacer S Sreesanth has given a huge statement, leaving fans in a frenzy.
During a recent chat on the Star Sports network, the former India pacer highlighted three interesting aspects of the upcoming match. Sreesanth said it’s going to be a thrilling game to watch, given the results of the previous encounters RCB and DC played recently.
In a video posted by Star Sports, S Sreesanth said, “The golden match of the IPL. This is going to be very exciting, DC playing RCB. No. 1 point – Virat Kohli vs Warner. It’s going to be a thriller to watch because DC just won a game and RCB are on the verge of making it to the best in the league. Point no. 2 for me will be Nortje. I’ll love to see him running in hard and making the RCB batters dance to his tunes.”

Sreesanth’s last and final point garnered a lot of attention on social media. He said he would love to see Kohli scoring a century at his home ground and which would be a tribute to Sourav Ganguly, the director of cricket operations at DC.

S Sreesanth concluded by saying, “The third point is pretty interesting. I would love to see Virat scoring a hundred. It would be a great tribute to Dada. Virat, just go out there and express yourself and win this for RCB.”
Reportedly, Virat and Ganguly aren’t having a healthy relationship ever since he was sacked as India’s ODI captain. The last time when Delhi faced RCB in Bengaluru, there was a moment when Kohli took a catch to dismiss Aman Hakim Khan and on his way back to his fielding position near the boundary rope, he gave a death stare to Ganguly who was seated at the dugout.
