It was the two extremes of emotions on the ground today. On one side, the brutal loss of CSK to RCB was quite painful, but, on the other hand, Virat Kohli’s game-changing attire bagging the amazing win for the popular favorite RCB is eye-candy to watch. It can be put this way that after playing alongside AB de Villiers for the longest time, Virat Kohli finally mastered a new trick in his trade with a scintillating ‘360’ degree shot emulating AB de Villiers. Right after the shot, Kohli pointed out at the Proteas batsman in the dressing room showing what he just accomplished.
It was quite gloomy until the first half of the skipper’s innings’. It was nothing but an amalgam of the quick singles and a stylish double in between to put the CSK’s bowlers under pressure every single over. Post the powerplay the right-hander started finding gaps in the field, which was quite not visible to the naked eyes of the audience on their television screen, such was the elegance of his batting. After a quick double-wicket over from Shardul Thakur, the pressure was back on the RCB batsmen to up the ante. However, one man stood between CSK restricting them for a low total and RCB getting themselves off to a mighty total – Virat Kohli.
Virat showcased that when he landed a six against Sam Curran in the 14th delivery that he faced in his innings, via some luck though. After that, he ensured that the English all-rounder was at no mercy, scoring 24 runs off his over, with two sixes that were quite amazing.

Right in the following overs, he bashed another six which showed that he was right there, in terms of being in impeccable form. It had to result in something and it did with Kohli playing like there’s no tomorrow. With Dwayne Bravo charging in the last over, the right-hander ensured that he was calm and composed when he swept the ball in a ‘360-degree’ manner emulating his teammate AB de Villiers to score a boundary. If you think that was enough, he then looked at the dressing room to indicate that he too could hit such shots.
Twitterati reacted to the whole incident in an overwhelming way, check out some of the funniest memes here:
