Virat Kohli Complains To Cricket Gods After Low Score vs PBKS & Fans Are Heartbroken

Virat Kohli, much to the delight of cricket fans all over the world, showed glimpses of his vintage form during his knock against Punjab Kings at the Brabourne stadium in Mumbai on Friday (May 13).

Chasing a huge total of 210, Kohli came out with positive intent and looked at ease in the middle. The former Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper hit Arshdeep Singh for a couple of boundaries in the second over and in the next over, he stepped down to smash Harpreet Brar over mid-wicket for a maximum.

It looked like the perfect setting for Kohli to return back to forma big pressure run chase and he was middling the ball on a track that was batting friendly.

However, a short ball from Kagiso Rabada hurried onto Kohli and the ball brushed his gloves before hitting the thigh pad and ballooned straight to Rahul Chahar, stationed at short fine-leg.

The on-field umpire gave Kohli not out but Punjab Kings reviewed the decision and the snicko showed a spike just as the ball went past Kohli’s gloves and he was given out.

As Kohli was walking off the field, he looked up at the sky and it seemed as if he was complaining to the cricket gods for not getting any sort of luck whatsoever in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Fans were disheartened to see Kohli in such a situation and his outburst of emotions broke many hearts.

Kohli has played 13 matches in this year’s IPL and he has scored only 236 runs at an average of 19.67. Current RCB skipper Faf du Plessis feels that a big knock is not just around the corner for Kohli.

“He’s (Kohli) seeing the lighter side of it. Obviously when you … every single way that you think you can possibly get out, that’s just how the game works. Sometimes when you’re a little bit of under pressure, the game finds ways to keep you under pressure. All you can really do is make sure you keep working hard, keep a good intensity, a good attitude, keep staying positive knowing that it’s around the corner, “Du Plessis said at the post-match presentation.

As cricket fans, we too are hoping that a big knock does come from the bat of Kohli in this IPL which will keep him in good stead going forward in a season that also includes a T20 World Cup in a few months’ time.
