Virat Kohli was the star of the show for Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the clash against Punjab Kings at the HPCA stadium in Dharamsala. Batting first, RCB posted a total of 241/7, with Kohli playing a quickfire knock of 92 runs in 47 deliveries. 

Ashutosh Sharma dropped Kohli’s catch before he had even opened his account, while Rilee Russouw missed another chance when Kohli was at 10. The veteran Indian batter made sure that PBKS regretted missing the opportunity. After the game, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra analysed the clash between RCB and PBKS. 

“Kohli opened, and it seemed like the Punjab players ate paranthas with a lot of butter and then forgot to wash their hands. Who drops so many catches? Everyone was dropping catches – easy, easy catches. As the saying goes, if you drop so many catches, you drop the match,” Chopra said in a video on his YouTube channel.

“If you give Virat Kohli one lifeline, he makes your bharta (mashes you) if you are a brinjal. If you give him two lifelines, you seldom live to tell the tale, and that’s what happened. The catches might have been slightly difficult but the one at cover was a regulation catch,” he added.

How well he batted, everyone should applaud him: Aakash Chopra

Furthermore, Chopra heaped praise on Virat Kohli for his extraordinary knock. It is worth noting that there were many discussions about the star batter’s strike rate in recent weeks, and a blistering knock against Punjab Kings silenced the critics. 

“So Kohli scored 92 runs off 47 balls at a ferocious strike rate of 195. Dharamsala’s hills are super cool and Virat Kohli in this match was paisa vasool (worth the money). How well he batted, everyone should applaud him along with me. Well done Virat Kohli,” Chopra said.
