Virat Kohli was over the moon and celebrated during RCB’s win over LSG in Eliminator of IPL 2022. The former Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper scored 25 off 24 balls, but he was active and excited while the bowlers defended the total of 207 runs.
He showed his emotions whenever there was a fall of a wicket or a misfield by the RCB player. Former India all-rounder and one of the leading commentators, Irfan Pathan, compared Virat to Suresh Raina for the habit of celebrating his teammates’ accomplishments.
“He is a charged-up character who loves celebrating for his teammates. Virat is there on and off the field for the players, and he is like Suresh Raina, who used to be the only one to get excited whenever any of the Indian players reached a milestone or contributed to the game,” he said.
For the record, RCB defeated LSG by 14 runs to qualify for Qualifier 2, where they will face Rajasthan Royals.
