Virat Kohli singles out the skills he wants to take from MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma

As the IPL 2024 is at its business end, Virat Kohli and RCBV are in the quest for the remaining playoff spot. They will take on CSK in their final league fixture, which will also decide their destiny in the tournament. If Royal Challengers Bengaluru beats Chennai Super Kings by 18 or more runs or chases the target before the 18.1 over mark, then they will advance to the next stage. Any other result including a rain wash out will open the door for CSK to prevail.
