On the last ball of the first over, Mukesh Choudhary delivered an inswinger and Kohli came forward to drive back towards the bowler. Kohli was out of the crease and seeing the opportunity to run-out him, Mukesh Chaudhary threw the ball towards the stumps.

During the same match, RCB opening batsman Virat Kohli started well but slowed down in the middle and scored 30 in 33 balls; was dismissed by Moeen Ali who, for the 11th time in all formats dismissed the former RCB skipper. However, RCB ended up winning the match by 13 runs after which they reached the fourth place on the points-table.

Talking about Virat Kohli’s innings, veteran and former cricketer Ian Bishop said that he was concerned at Virat Kohli’s repeated struggles against spin, especially off-spin. In this year’s tournament, Kohli had managed to score a fifty only one time with a mere strike rate of 111.09, which also is the third lowest.

“This is something we’ve been seeing with Virat, not just this season. Even last season, I remember, and even sometimes internationally, he’ll fly out – he didn’t fly out tonight – and then he’ll slow down again. So, I’m concerned.

“Roston Chase got him out in the West Indies series [at home in February], we saw him getting out to the offspinner in Test matches. So, I’m concerned about…and I’m a Kohli fan. I tune in to watch cricket when Kohli’s at his best, so it isn’t criticism but an observation that I am concerned that a number of types of bowlers are getting him out and he’s not getting ahead of the rate,” Ian Bishop said.
