Virat Kohli sledging misfires as Manish Pandey gives a perfect reply with the bat

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli is an aggressive personality by nature. He is someone who never hides his emotions in the game. In fact, he often gives animated reactions when a drama happens on the field.

During the eliminator match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad, a sensational incident happened. There was a fierce contest between RCB captain Virat Kohli and SRH player Manish Pandey.

The RCB captain tried to get on Manish Pandey’s nerves by sledging during the SRH run-chase. However, Manish was not buying any of this. He didn’t mess with Virat Kohli but frustrated the latter by smashing a huge six.

Manish Pandey’s six off Mohammed Siraj’s bowling brought the sledging to an end. Virat Kohli must have learned a big lesson to not mess with Manish Pandey any more. Manish Pandey won the battle against Virat Kohli.

SRH player Manish Pandey did the right thing. He didn’t cross his limits to have a verbal spat with RCB captain Virat Kohli. Manish knew exactly what he was doing as he was pretty much focused on helping his team add runs.

Earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner won the toss and opted to bowl first. Royal Challengers Bangalore posted a modest total of 131/7 in 20 overs. AB de Villiers was the pick of the batsman as he scored 56 off 43.

Jason Holder was the best bowler for SRH. He accounted for 3 dismissals, giving away just 25 runs in his four-over bowling spell. Natarajan picked up two important wickets as SRH restrict RCB to a low-scoring total.

In reply, SRH lost Shreevats Goswami was dismissed for a duck by Mohammed Siraj. RCB mounted pressure on SRH batsmen. Manish Pandey left Kohli red-faced by hitting a huge six after Kohli tried to sledge him.

RCB’s trophy drought continues after SRH defeat

It seems Royal Challengers Bangalore will have to wait for next April to prove themselves worthy of title contenders. It has been thirteen seasons now and yet they are searching for their maiden trophy in the league.

Virat Kohli has been the consistent run-scorer for RCB. However, if team wants to win titles, the entire team has to be competitive and produce collective performances rather than individuals.

Royal Challengers Bangalore were nowhere close to posing a major threat to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator. David Warner’s side beat RCB by 6 wickets with two balls to spare as Jason Holder hit the winning runs.

Kane Williamson held his nerves and scored a match-winning fifty off 44 balls including two fours. He was adjudged the man of the match. SRH will play against Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier in Abu Dhabi tomorrow.
