IPL 2022 has brought a lot of interesting stories and another incident happened during Royal Challengers Bangalore versus Punjab Kings clash. What surprising incident happened was an interruption by a black cat on Friday, May 13 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
It happened in the first over of RCB’s chase of 210, when RCB skipper Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli were at the crease. It was du Plessis who asked to halt play because the cat sat on the sightscreen. He asked the umpires to intervene.
Du Plessis smacked a four off Harpreet Brar’s over before the play was stopped. After the umpires intervene, the cat started to move.

Result of RCB vs PBKS
With Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone’s incredible half-centuries, Punjab Kings were able to set a huge target of 209 to the Royal Challengers. In just 21 balls, Bairstow scored his 50 with 7 sixes in the powerplay. With 4 sixes and 5 fours, Livingstone smashed 70 in 42 balls. He even smashed a monstrous 105-meter six off Shahbaz Ahmed in the 15th over which also went out of the building. RCB’s Harshal Patel’s 4-wicket-haul definitely had gone vain after losing the match.
Virat Kohli’s poor form continued as he failed yet again. Fans though, had some hope to see him score after his quick and smooth 20 off 14 balls. But Kagiso Rabada didn’t let him to go on.
Kohli was all angry when he walked back off the field with yelling while looking up in what appeared to be, “What else do you want me to do?”
From Royal Challengers’ side, only Glenn Maxwell could score 35, also the highest from their side.
