Bro completes 10K steps per innings: Fans in awe of Virat Kohli’s athleticism vs RR

The fans were in awe of Virat Kohli’s brilliant athleticism after he was involved in a brilliant run-out to dismiss Dhruv Jurel during RCB’s eliminator match against RR at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on May 22, Wednesday. Kohli was at his electric best, giving his everything at the crease to help RCB reach the final. Green bowled a back-of-length delivery and Jurel powerfully pulled to the left of Kohli at deep square.

Kohli charged at the ball and threw it flat into the bowler’s arms at the non-striker’s end. Jurel’s casual approach to the second run cost him his wicket. It was a sublime effort from Kohli, as Green collected the ball and knocked it off the bails. Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor, in attendance at the match, was elated by the brilliant run-out. Earlier, during RCB’s match against PBKS, Kohli had executed a spectacular direct hit to dismiss Shashank Singh, turning the tide in RCB’s favor. At 35, Kohli’s exceptional fitness ensures he remains at the top of his game.

However, the effort was not enough as RCB lost the match by 4 wickets against RR. RCB was eliminated by RR as they were powered to the Qualifier 2 match. IPL 2024 Full Coverage | IPL 2024 Points Table and Standings | 2024 IPL Full Schedule
