Kohli Took Ashwin’s Catch & Gestured About The “Mankad” Incident !! Internet Reacts !!


A merciless onslaught from AB de Villiers and Marcus Stoinis in the death took Royal Challengers Bangalore past the 200-run mark which proved to be enough against Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday. As a result of their fourth win in the season, RCB climbed up from the bottom of the points table while Kings XI continue to languish just outside the top four.

Virat Kohli, the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper, is well-known for his aggressive celebrations. During the Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday, we got to witness another animated send-off from the Indian skipper. Chasing 203 to win, KXIP needed 27 runs off the final over.

Captain Ravichandran Ashwin came to the crease and hit Umesh Yadav’s first delivery for a six. Ashwin hoped for the same result on the next delivery too but he mistimed his shot and the ball went straight to Kohli, stationed at the long-on boundary. After safely completing the catch, Kohli reacted in a rather animated manner.

After the match, when asked about the send-off, Ashwin defended his equal number saying that they both are passionate players. “I just play with passion and so does he,” Ashwin said at the post-match press conference.

As far as the match in concerned, RCB continue to stay afloat as they beat KXIP by 17 runs in Bengaluru. However this incident created a furore on Internet where the netizens started debating the either what Kohli did was right or wrong.
