Dismissing Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma and Royal Challengers Bangalore star batter Virat Kohli is the the big dream for any bowler, especially one competing in the Indian Premier League. Regardless of their current state, the pair is in high demand because of their stellar numbers and reputation.
Kohli is one of the leading run scorers in the IPL 2023, but his strike rate is in doubt, Whereas Rohit is going through a rough spell right now, as he just broke the record for most IPL batters with 16 ducks.
They are both still highly sought-after wickets, though. In a recent occasion, the renowned CSK bowler Deepak Chahar was questioned about his favourite wicket. Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma? It’s challenging.
Chahar responded intelligently: “I’ve had Rohit Bhai several times. Virat Kohli, then.

This IPL season, Rohit has struggled to score runs, scoring only 184 runs at an average of 18.39 and a strike rate of 126.89. He was unable to access his account throughout the last two games. In fact, during the most recent game against Chennai Super Kings, Rohit recorded his 16th duck, which is a record for the IPL.
In contrast, Virat Kohli is in good form and has scored runs in the majority of the games. Due of his verbal altercation with Gautam Gambhir and Naveen-Ul-Haq recently, Kohli has also received media attention. Following that, a number of their videos became popular on social media, and followers also shared their opinions regarding this.
While Virat’s RCB will play their next game against Rajasthan Royals, Rohit’s MI will play its next game against Gujarat Titans.
