It was a day to forget for Virat Kohli, the skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore as not just he failed to showcase his batting capabilities but also dropped the catch twice, which eventually cost his team the match.
Following the costly drops, KL Rahul went on to smash 42 runs off just 9 deliveries. Later, in the 19th over, KL Rahul hit Dale Steyn for 26 runs before ending his innings by 132 runs.
Soon after Virat Kohli walked back to the pavilion, social media went into a frenzy and fans started trolling Virat Kohli and his squad for their performances. From cricket pundits to cricketers, many took to their twitter and took a dig at Virat Kohli.
Among many, Mumbai Indians skipper and team India’s vice-captain, Rohit Sharma took to his twitter and posted a tweet praising KL Rahul for his stunning performance. Rohit wrote:
“Some solid shots there by @klrahul11 classy hundred”
