Virat Kohli played his 200th match for RCB last night at Sharjah. He started his journey at the franchise as a teenager in 2008 and played for them all through the course of 13 years.
Virat Kohli is a passionate human being in everything he does. He is a little bunch of liveliness while he is not playing and a fierce competitor when he crosses the boundary line.
Before the toss yesterday, we all got to see a different Avatar of Virat Kohli. He was seen dancing to a bollywood tune during the warm-ups. As soon as broadcaster aired the scenes, social media came crashing down in awe of their favourite son. Dancing is not a strange thing to him as he is married to a bollywood actress and he had been seen dancing on Punjabi tunes multiple times in the past.
Batting first after winning the toss, Royal Challengers Bangalore lost Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch early in the powerplay overs. Virat Kohli steadied the ship in the middle overs but RCB messed up their batting order big time. AB de Villiers was demoted in the batting order after his blistering knock in the last match. Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube were sent ahead of him to tackle the threat of two leg-spinners. As a result, RCB were restricted to 171 and Chris Morris' late fireworks had a part to play in that score as well.
In reply, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal started positively in search of elusive two points. Once Mayank Agarwal was dismissed, Chris Gayle came out to bat for the first time in this year's IPL. Both stitched a partnership that took KXIP to brinks but they left it too late in the end. But fortunately for KXIP, Nicholas Pooran was able to finish things up with a six on the last ball.
