Virat Kohli, PBKS vs RCB: Royal Challengers Bangalore gave an unexpected surprise to both cricket fans and Kohli fans in today’s IPL match at Mohali. Yes, fans got a chance to see Virat Kohli as the captain once again. Virat Kohli is leading RCB as they face Punjab Kings today. Kohli, who has been sticking to RCB since the first season of IPL, was the captain of that team from 2013 to 2021. But after that, Kohli, who got rid of those duties, is playing again as the captain today. That means Kohli will take the reins of captaincy for the first time after the 2021 IPL season.
During today’s match, Punjab Kings won the first toss and chose to bowl. Faf Duplessis, the regular captain of the team, was injured in the last match played by RCB. The captain is leading the team in this match. Kohli said at toss time ‘Faf is not fielding today. He will replace Vaishakh as an impact player. We also wanted to bat first. Even if you lose the toss, you get the same chance. Apart from this, there are no changes in the team’, he said.

Both of them completed half-centuries with a huge partnership of 137 runs for the first wicket. But Kohli (59 runs) who played the first ball of the 17th over bowled by Harpreet Brar reached the pavilion as he was caught out. Glenn Maxwell who came later was also ducked on the first ball.
