Today’s match between the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) has been quite a thrilling feat. But something unusual has unfolded when RCB captain Virat Kohli considered one of the best and safest fielders in the world, let two easy catches slip. Kohli dropped his counterpart KL Rahul twice in two consecutive overs allowing the KXIP captain to get away and score a hundred.
In time, things took a U-turn, while KXIP has won just one match ever since RCB has only gotten better. They currently are on 10 points and at 3rd rank on the points table, while KXIP was stuck at the bottom. Post the match, during the Instagram live chat, Rahul jokingly said he is hoping for KXIP to turn their luck around since they beat RCB in their previous encounter. In the middle of that, Rahul did not miss a chance to remind Kohli of his dropped catches from the innings.
Talking about the match, Rahul said, “That’s been the general chat – to win every game. It helps to know that the only game we’ve won is against RCB so we will come in with a little bit of confidence. It’ll be fun. I’ve always had fun playing with or against RCB. So yeah, looking forward to one more cracker. I’m just hoping that some of your fielders can drop a couple more catches.”
On the other hand, Kohli didn’t let it go easily. He responded to Rahul adding that even though he slipped up previously, he is not going to change his fielding position, warning the KXIP captain that he should think twice about hitting the ball in the air this time around.
“Like last time, I’m going into the same position by the way. So you might want to think twice before hitting it in the air,” Kohli concluded.
