Royal Challengers Bangalore star Virat Kohli was extremely-hyped as his team were running through the Lucknow Super Giants while defending a low total of 126 runs. But in this rush of emotions, Kohli lost his cool at Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga after conceding a six in the 10th over of the game.
After giving away just four runs off the first four balls of his over, Hasaranga sent out a looping full ball which was smashed down the ground by Krishnappa Gowtham. Fielding at the boundary, the ball sailed over Virat Kohli, who was extremely angry at the Sri Lankan and was seen questioning why he delivered a tossed-up ball.

After this six, the RCB bowlers pulled their socks up and help the team register an 18-run win. Barring Mahipal Lomror, all other Bangalore bowlers managed to pick up wickets. This bowling effort pushed RCB to a hard-fought `18-run win.
Reacting to this performance, RCB captain Faf du Plessis said, "Opposite, complete opposites (the pitch here vs Chinnaswamy). We played really well in the first six overs. That's when you can play the same way. To have a fifty partnership in the six overs was match-changing. Batting first was important. Spinners was hard work. Even Mahipal got the ball to hold. If you can bowl the ball on a good area, it's pretty hard to score. Would've liked 135 - in my mind that was a really good score. "
"Before we went on the field, we said to the guys it's a match-winning score. Felt if we get 2-3 in the powerplay, especially with KL not being there, it's going to be difficult. Super happy for Karn. Just one of those guys who does the hard work all the time but doesn't get the recognition. Great to have Hazlewood back. Nothing to the guys who've filled his shoes. But good to have him," he further added.
