Virat Kohli over the years has surely imposed himself very lethal as his innings progresses in the limited over format. Thinking of that same KKR Captain, Eoin Morgan made a key plan to dismiss King Kohli early on the innings by introducing spinner early on and set the field as close as possible to build the pressure on the RCB openers.

Varun Chakravarthy bowled a tossed-up bowl, to which Virat Kohli wanted to go inside out. But as the ball stuck onto the pitch, Kohli got a top edge which seemed to be landing in the safe spot. However, Rahul Tripathi ran back and dived in to pull off a stunner dismissing the RCB Captain for only 5 runs.

Watch the catch here:

 

After Virat Kohli’s dismissal, the KKR spinner bowled a beauty to clean up Rajat Patidar. As things stand after the completion of the 9 over RCB are 78/2.
