India teammates Virat Kohli and Ishant Sharma were involved in a fascinating duel on Sunday (May 12) when Royal Challengers Bengaluru locked horns against Delhi Capitals at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Virat Kohli tried to get under the skin of Ishant Sharma but the latter had the last laugh as he managed to dismiss the in-form batsman to give DC a solid start in the crucial game. In the very first over of the RCB innings, Virat Kohli had targeted Ishant Sharma by hitting him for a six.

The former India skipper decided to attack the pacer again when he came to bowl his second and fourth of the innings. On the first ball of the over, Kohli edged the delivery but was lucky that it was well wide of the wicketkeeper and ran away for a four. Both the players were then seen exchanging a few words.

On the second ball, Kohli hit Ishant Sharma for a six over long-on. The right-arm pacer then bowled a dot delivery and a wide before dismissing Kohli on the fourth ball of the over. Kohli went for a drive but ended up edging the ball to the wicketkeeper.

Ishant Sharma was delighted with the dismissal and made sure to let Kohli know about it. Both the players then shared a laugh before Kohli walked away.

Kohli departed after scoring 27 runs off 13 balls with the help of one four and three sixes. At the time of writing this report, RCB were on 106 for 2 in the 10th over with Rajat Patidar and Will Jacks batting in the middle.

Talking about Kohli's campaign in IPL 2024, he has been on an amazing run. The right-handed batsman is the leading run-scorer in the tournament. In 13 games so far, he has scored 661 runs with the help of one century and five half-centuries.
