Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli was thinking of turning the tide against Chennai Super Kings in IPL’s opening game. The right hand batsman had scored a lot of runs against MS Dhoni’s team in the past. However, Kohli was undone by Harbhajan Singh as he achieved his worst-ever score against the Kings.
Bhajji bowled a short delivery and Kohli pulled it over midwicket to find Ravindra Jadeja in the deep. The all-rounder took the catch easily as Kohli departed after scoring just six runs.
Here’s how fans reacted:
Kohli getting out to a part time AajTak reporter ffs.

Nothing is more pleasurable than Rcb & kohli fan girls abusing their own team players.

When I said use your resource,both captains know this is a slow wicket&will aid spin bowling. But who is a wise captain? MSD picked 5 spin bowlers. Used them. Bundling out RCB. Kohli, on the other hand, picked just Chahal. Blame your captain. Captaincy is everything! #CSKvRCB
