Virat Kohli just told me to focus on the length: Harshal Patel on Bowling his first ball a no ball against MI
In an interview with India TV, RCB’s pacer Harshal Patel talks about Various moments in IPL and he further reveals his views on several aspects.
Indian Uncapped Player and Royal Challenger Bangalores star bowler Harshal Patel had a dream season in IPL 2021. He also became a purple cap holder for a couple of weeks before the IPL got suspended.
In an interview with India TV, Harshal Patel told that AB de Villiers is his last dream wicket. He also revealed what Virat Kohli told him when he bowled a No Ball to MI in his first ball against Mumbai Indians.
” I’ve already got my dream wickets. I had dismissed Sachin Tendulkar back in 2011. I have also taken the wicket of MS Dhoni twice and Kohli once. All these are my dream wickets. I hope I never play against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the future but if that happens, I would love to take the wicket of AB de Villiers,” Patel told India TV.
He further talks about how Virat Kohli guides him and all about his mid Match talks with the skipper Harshal tells to India TV that “I usually don’t celebrate my wickets with so much passion. Virat covers it up. It’s his passion. His involvement in the field and his energy are exceptional. In a team sport, if you enjoy your teammate’s success, your side eventually plays as a cohesive unit.”
“When I bowled a no-ball on my first ball against Mumbai Indians, Virat just told me to focus on the length. There was no other conversation. When there’s too much noise, you just need simple feedback, and all other things get blurred in the background.”
Notably, Harshal Patel was spectacular throughout the season but unfortunately, IPL 2021 got suspended due to many COVID-19 cases in a couple of teams. Harshal impressed everyone with his performance in IPL and now speculations are there that he might be part of India’s team that will go for the Sri Lanka tour.
