RCB skipper Virat Kohli is one of the most active cricketers on a cricket field. Apart from his batting and fielding efforts, Virat is widely recognized for his antics and reactions as he believes to play the aggressive brand of cricket. On Monday, another such incident occurred when Royal Challengers Bangalore took on Mumbai Indians in the 10th game of IPL 2020.
When the two giants of the cash-rich league collided, Mumbai Indians won the toss and their skipper, Rohit Sharma elected to field first. In various media reports, there have been constant mentions of a rift between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, especially after India’s exit from the 2019 world cup. On Monday, the rift was easily visible as Rohit and Virat didn’t even talk to each other during the toss.
The rumours of these rifts once again escalated as Virat Kohli celebrated in an animated manner as Rohit Sharma fell prey to RCB early in the second innings, chasing a humungous target of 202 runs.
Watch: Virat Kohli Comes Up With An Animated Celebration As Rohit Sharma Falls Prey To RCB Early In The Innings
Rohit Sharma departed too early in the second innings as he came out to open the innings for Mumbai Indians along with Quinton de Kock. Rohit got out trying to clear the deep-mid wicket boundary in the second over of the second innings as Pawan Negi caught Rohit handsomely on the boundary off Washington Sundar.
Virat, being the aggressive brat, celebrated Rohit’s wicket in an animated manner and didn’t hold back his emotions. Virat celebrated wildly running towards his bowler and added fuel to the fire of the rift between him and Rohit Sharma.
RCB set a humungous total of 201/3 in the first innings, thanks to half-centuries from AB de Villiers, the young Indian prodigal batsman, Devdutt Padikkal, and the Australian limited-overs skipper, Aaron Finch. Finch and Padikkal started the RCB innings on a high and the team carried the momentum forward throughout the innings.
It will be interesting to see as to how Mumbai Indians respond to RCB as they have already lost 3 wickets so far with a gigantic total lying in front of them.
