- RCB captain Virat Kohli’s bid to sledge Suryakumar Yadav has come under the scanner.
Just two days after being snubbed by the Indian selectors for the upcoming tour of Australia, Suryakumar Yadav played a classy innings for Mumbai Indians to guide them to a comfortable win over the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Here’s What Happened :
The incident took place during the 13th over of MI’s chase. A settled Suryakumar was anchoring a well-measured chase for his team. He played a ball towards cover where Kohli stopped the ball and gave a long stare to the batsman. Suryakumar did not hold back and stared back himself while remaining unmoved.
Kohli came close to the batsman and stood there for 15 second but an unfazed Suryakumar stood his ground and kept looking back into Kohli’s eyes, not move an inch.
Kohli’s act left a sour taste in the mouth of users on Twitter, who were quick to react, with many calling it a ‘shameful act’ on the part of Kohli. Here are some of the tweets that did not approve of Kohli’s actions.
Twitter lauds Suryakumar Yadav and criticizes Virat Kohli.

Suryakumar decided to let his bat do all the talking and remained unbeaten for his 79 runs in 43 balls, which took his team over the line in the final over with five wickets in hand. This win gave MI an advantage over others as they are now on 16 points and on the verge of qualifying.
