Although Royal Challengers Bangalore lost last night to Kolkata Knight Riders, skipper Virat Kohli impressed the spectators not only with his bat but with his exemplary fielding skills as well.
In the 19th over of the game against KKR, as Dinesh Karthik smashed Mohammed Siraj towards long-on, Kohli ran in and took a full-length dive to dismiss his opposition captain for 23. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop the visitors from securing a comfortable win.

The Indian skipper scored his 33rd IPL fifty and helped his team post 175 runs on the scorecard. In reply, KKR got off to a flying start owing to Sunil Narine’s inning followed by Lynn’s patient knock.
Virat Kohli and his team would try harder to bounce back stronger after the poor on-field show last night.
