Kohli started off well against Punjab who had set them a target of 209. He hit two crisp boundaries off Arshdeep Singh in the second over the RCB chase. He then hit a six-off left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar and in process also became the first cricketer to reach 6500 runs in the Indian Premier League.

However, Kagiso Rabada got the ball and then managed to dismiss the batter in most bizarre way. Kohli was looking to flick the ball, but the ball hit his thigh pads and went straight into the air after which it was caught. Mayank Agarwal soon reviewed it, and replays confirmed that the ball had kissed his bat before hitting his thigh pads. Here’s how Kohli reacted.

Some of his fans were left heartbroken after watching this clip.

Kohli has so far scored for 236 runs in in 12 matches at an average of 19. Even in last game against SRH, he was out for a first-ball duck. That was his third golden duck this season.

Blazing half-centuries by Jonny Bairstow (66 off 29 balls) and Liam Livingstone (70 off 42 balls) followed by a clinical bowling performance helped Punjab Kings thrash Royal Challengers Bangalore by 54 runs in Match 60 of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium here on Friday.

Bairstow started the early carnage on a freaky Friday against Royal Challengers Bangalore, completing his half-century in 21 deliveries, after RCB won the toss and elected to bowl first. Livingstone took up the scoring mantle later, hitting a 42-ball 70 as he held the innings together to help Punjab Kings post 209/9 in 20 overs.

In reply, Royal Challengers Bangalore tried to match their scoring rate initially but lost wickets at regular intervals as their chase derailed against some disciplined bowling by the Punjab Kings bowlers, especially Kagiso Rabada (3/21), Rishi Dhawan (2/36) and Rahul Chahar (2/37).
