Virat Kohli gives a massive statement on winning the Orange cap in spite of a topsy turvy season for Royal challengers Bengaluru

After winning the Orange Cap, veteran batsman Virat Kohli of the Royal Challengers Bengaluru was “extremely proud” and “pleased” with his performance in the second half of the season. After losing to the Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator by four wickets, RCB was eliminated from the competition. 
The Challengers were eliminated from the competition for the final four spots. They had mathematically qualified for the race and only needed to win their six group stage matches in order for other outcomes to go their way.
In the 17th iteration of the lucrative league, Kohli took home the Orange Cap for most runs scored. With a century and five fifties, he amassed 741 runs at an average of 61.75 in 15 games. With a strike rate of 154.69, which was the highest for Kohli in an IPL season, he achieved his best score of 113*.
“I am grateful to have won the orange cap this season. It was quite the ride on a rollercoaster. I was incredibly happy with my performance for the club, particularly in the second half, when we had to win every game to make the playoffs. After winning the match and receiving the trophy,” Kohli stated, “Thank you to everyone for their support.”
While Kohli won the Orange Cap, Harshal Patel, a former teammate who now plays for the Punjab Kings, took home the Purple Cap for the second time. 
With an economy of 9.73 and an average of 19.87, the cunning pacer finished the tournament with 24 wickets in 14 matches. By taking 32 wickets in a single season in 2021 while playing for Royal Challengers Bengaluru, he earned his first Purple Cap.
In IPL history, he became just the third bowler to win two Purple Caps, behind Dwayne Bravo and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Thanking the squad and his family for their support, Harshal expressed his excitement for the upcoming season.
