Babar’s fans call him King also for his contributions to Pakistan’s wins. So, it has always been found that there is a debate between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam’s fans on who is the real king of world cricket. So, fans shared some mixed reactions after seeing such a cheeky tweet from the Pakistan pacer. Speaking of the match, Heinrich Klaasen smashed his maiden IPL ton and SRH scored 186 runs for five wickets in 20 overs. In reply, Kohli and du Plessis put up a partnership of 172 runs for the first wicket in 17.5 overs. 

After winning the Player of the Match award, Kohli said: “I never look at my numbers. I don't give myself enough credit sometimes for playing impact knocks. I take pride to play the situation. I don't play fancy shots. We have to play 12 months of the year, so you can't play fancy shots and throw your wicket away. I try to stay true to my technique and take pride which helps my team. I told Faf that it was like a home game, cheering for RCB and taking my name as well. I feel you can't create this. I'm myself on the field and think it resonates with the people. Great to see people happy when I perform.”
