Royal Challengers Bengaluru have clawed their way back into the ongoing Eliminator against Rajasthan Royals thanks to a stunning fielding effort from Virat Kohli at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The former India skipper and Cameron Green combined to run out Dhruv Jurel cheaply. Chasing 173 runs, RR were off to a brilliant start and were comfortably placed at 81 for 1 in the tenth over before Green dismissed a well-set Yashasvi Jaiswal for 45 to give his side a much-needed breakthrough.

Five runs later, Karn Sharma picked up the huge wicket of Sanju Samson to reduce RR to 86 for 3. Riyan Parag and Dhruv Jurel then took the score past the 100-run mark. Both the batters were looking settled and had the innings in control before Virat Kohli's heroics helped RCB turn the game on its head. 

On the first ball of the 14th over, Virat Kohli's efforts helped RCB get rid of Jurel and end his 26-run stand with Parag. The wicketkeeper-batsman was run out while trying to complete the second run. Not many would have anticipated a run-out but anything is possible when Virat Kohli is on the field and he showed it once again.

The former RCB skipper was standing at deep square leg when Parag pulled Green's delivery towards his left. Kohli sprinted to collect the ball and fired a bullet throw at the non-striker's end where Green did well to take the bails off in a flash before Jurel could get back inside the crease safely. Jurel was seemingly not expecting the throw at his end from Kohli and was a bit casual in his running and eventually paid the price for it.

Talking about the game, RR were on 143 for 4 at the end of the 16th over at the time of writing this report. They need 30 more runs in the last four overs to book a place in the second qualifier.
