The tournament has become more exciting as almost every game is a must win contest. On Saturday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Delhi Capitals in the evening game at the Arun Jaitely Stadium. It will be a homecoming for Virat Kohli, as he will play in front of the home crowd.
However, the last time these two teams met earlier this season in M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, it ended in a high-voltage clash. However, RCB ended up on the winning side and beat DC by 23 runs.
Virat won the “Man of the Match” award in this game for scoring a brilliant 50 off 34. However, in the upcoming game, Virat and Sourav Ganguly will be in the spotlight once again, which means the fans will not only witness the game but also some other things that will catch their attention.
Just like the things between the two Indian icons that gathered the attention of the fans in the last game. Former Indian speedster S. Sreesanth made a blunt remark ahead of the RCB and DC clash on Saturday and said that if the former RCB skipper can get a century, it will be a worthy tribute for Ganguly.
Sreensanth said on Star Sports, “Virat Kohli scoring a century against Delhi Capitals will be a great tribute to Dada.”
'@ImVKohli getting a 100 will be a great tribute to Dada', @sreesanth_36 anticipates a great #RivalryWeek clash between @DelhiCapitals & @RCBTweets!

Notably, last time, both Virat and Ganguly didn’t shake hands after the conclusion of the match. The relationship between the two hasn’t been that good since Virat was sacked from the ODI captaincy ahead of the South Africa tour in December 2021.
Later, he himself stepped down from the test captaincy. Earlier, he stepped down from the T20I captaincy ahead of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Notably, Virat has been in exceptional form this season. He has scored 364 runs in nine innings at 45.50 and a strike rate of 137.88 with five half-centuries. Fans expect him to deliver yet another match-winning knock on Saturday on his home ground in Delhi.
