India’s run machine Virat Kohli was at his terrific best against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) last night. Continuing his good form, King Kohli scored an impressive unbeaten 83 and become the highest six hitter in IPL. 

While other RCB players kept falling one after another at the other end, Kohli kept himself cool and composed. His one shot against KKR’s Rs 24.75 crore buy Mitchell Starc has got everybody talking. The cricket legend’s flick off Starc in the third over resulted in a massive six.

Fans were thrilled to see Virat Kohli back in form and wish he continued until the T20 World Cup.

“This is absolute CINEMA, so spectacular,” commented a fan.

Another fan wrote, “Wrist main jadoo hai,” while another wrote, “This is why he is the king.”

“We love him for the reason who he is no matter what,” commented a third fan.

Coming back to the game, Virat Kohli’s efforts went in vain as Sunil Narine and Venkatesh Iyer played electrifying knocks for KKR. Sunil Narine hammered a 22-ball 47 runs and Venkatesh struck 50, and set up a seven-wicket win at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

It was an emphatic victory for KKR as they won with 19 balls to spare, winning their sixth successive match at RCB’s home. On the other hand, RCB suffered their second defeat in three games. They lost their first game against CSK.
