New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders beat Royal Challengers Bangalore as ‘Chase Master’ Virat Kohli’s fifty could not chase 201. After putting RCB in a fine position, Kohli was dismissed by Andre Russell as Venkatesh Iyer took a stunning diving catch. Apart from the catch, what went viral was Anushka Sharma’s reaction to Kohli’s wicket as she was left shocked by Iyer’s effort.
Bollywood actor Anushka was in the stands watching the game, looked stunned, and did not move a bit as Kohli got out on 54 off 37. The video of her reaction went viral on the internet.

It was not the first time that Anushka gave a reaction to Kohli’s performance, she is often seen smiling and jolly when he scores well and wins the games for his team, while the despair after his wicket is also an obvious reaction.
In the game, KKR posted 200 on the board Jason Roy scored a cracking fifty while captain Nitish Rana scored 48 off 21. Rinku Singh and David Wiese gave a great finish with 18*(10) and 12*(3) respectively. Wanindu Hasaranga and Vijaykumar Vyshak picked two wickets each while Mohammed Siraj managed one in the death overs. While everyone got hit for runs, leggie Hasaranga ended up with the figures of 24/2.
He held his nerves, remained composed and grabbed a spectacular catch ??

For RCB, Virat scored a half-century and Faf du Plessis firepowered 17 off 7 at the top. They got some support from Mahipal Lomror’s 34 off 18 but nobody could end the chase for RCB as they lost by 21 runs. Varun Chakravarthy picked three wickets and Suyash Sharma and Andre Russell picked two each, while all three of them were economical enough to restrict RCB at their home ground.
