Flying kiss after taking the catch
Virat Kohli took the catch of Yashasvi Jaiswal against Rajasthan Royals. Yashasvi, who was set at the crease, was moving towards the half-century. Meanwhile, he tried to play a big shot on the ball of Harshal Patel. The ball did not come properly on the bat and went into the hands of Virat Kohli standing at long on. After taking this catch, Virat Kohli turned towards the stands and gave a flying kiss. His wife Anushka Sharma, who was present on the ground, could not stop laughing at this. This IPL season, Anushka has been seen at the Chinnaswamy Stadium during every home match of RCB.
Second consecutive win under Virat’s captaincy
After the batting of Glenn Maxwell and Faf du Plessis, Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Rajasthan Royals by seven runs in this match due to the good performance of the bowlers led by Harshal Patel (three wickets for 32 runs). Taking an aggressive approach, Maxwell hit six fours and four sixes during his innings of 77 runs in 44 balls. Du Plessis supported him well, hitting eight fours and two sixes in his 39-ball 62. Both shared a 127-run partnership for the third wicket in just 66 balls, which helped RCB score 189 runs for nine wickets. The team then restricted Rajasthan Royals to 182 for six. While this is Bengaluru’s fourth win in seven matches, it is Rajasthan’s third defeat in as many matches.
