In the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals on October 18 (Saturday), the Rajasthan team set a target of 178 runs in front of Bangalore. Chasing the target, the Bangalore team did not start well and Aaron Finch returned to the pavilion at the score of 23. After this, captain Kohli, who came to bat, played an innings of 43 runs in 32 balls.
Kohli’s brilliant innings came to an end due to Rahul Tewatia’s unmatched catch. In 14 overs of the innings, Kohli tried to play a big shot off the ball of Rajasthan’s young fast bowler Karthik Tyagi. Kohli hit the ball into the deep mid-wicket area and not only Kohli but all the players on the field felt that this ball was going for a six.
But fielding at the boundary line, Rahul Teotia first ran in his right direction and while saving his own foot from the boundary line, he prevented the ball from blowing the ball first and then caught it cleverly. After catching this catch, not only the bowler but also Kohli were surprised.
Kohli hit one four and 2 sixes during this innings.
