CricketVirat Kohli's frustration, anger caught in camera during SRH vs RCB IPL game

Srinagar: History was made amid the run fest in the IPL 2024 in Bengaluru as the Sunrisers Hyderabad and RCB went into history books as part of the highest ever total in a T20 and IPL match.

SRH beat RCB by mere 25 runs in the match where a total 549 runs got scored in 40 overs. They came so close to a mamoth target but still may have to kiss their IPL playoff chances goodbye.

Sure, mathematically they are still in. They all are. But having lost six matches out of the first seven, seldom have teams recovered enough to seal a place in the top four.

On Monday evening Sunrisers Hyderabad belted them for 287 runs, thus bettering their own record to register the highest total in IPL history.

Virat Kohli, the holder of Orange Cap with 361 runs following a crisp 40 off 22 balls at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Kohli is proving to be the lone warrior of the team even as the franchise continues to nosedive.

On Monday, as SRH inflicted carnage on RCB, Kohli – although he didn’t bowl – felt the wrath of Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klassen during their onslaught.

Amidst the carnage, Kohli was captured by the cameras looking increasingly annoyed at how SRH were dealing with RCB bowlers. He kicked the turf, yelled at his teammates while expressing his frustrations at how easily boundaries were being conceded.

Kohli managed to give RCB a flying start along with partner Faf du Plessis. They scored 79 runs in the powerplay. Despite that, the asking rate was 15 runs an over. Kohli needed to keep going.

He tried to hit leg-spinner Mayank Markande out of the park but lost his shape in trying to do so and ended up missing the ball completely to lose his stumps. He was out for 42 off 20 balls.
