New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) superstar Virat Kohli came up with a great gesture for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batter Rinku Singh after the clash between the two sides in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Friday, March 29. Kohli slammed an unbeaten 83 off 59 balls but it didn’t prove enough as RCB could only manage to post 182/6 on the board in 20 overs with KKR chasing it down in just 16.5 overs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Kohli was the lone warrior for RCB as he stayed out in the middle throughout their innings. However, the star batter failed to find support from the other end which saw RCB fail to cross the 200-run mark. Despite the defeat, Kohli was seen in great spirits after the game and gifted his bat to Rinku while catching up with the KKR batter.

The young batter shared a post on his Instagram story, thanking Kohli for his advice and the bat which he gifted him. Kolkata Knight Riders shared a picture of Kohli gifting his bat to Rinku and sharing a hug with the left-hander.

Rinku played only 5 balls and didn’t get a chance to showcase his finishing prowess against RCB as KKR’s top order made light work of the 183-run chase at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Openers Philip Salt (30) and Sunil Narine (47) got KKR off to a flyer before a half-century from Venkatesh Iyer (50) and a crucial unbeaten knock of 39 runs from skipper Shreyas Iyer took the team over the line.

Virat Kohli clinches Orange Cap

While his unbeaten 83-run knock failed to inspire RCB to victory, it did help Kohli claim the top spot in the list of the highest run-getters in IPL 2024 so far. Kohli bagged the Orange Cap after his 83 as he has so far notched up 181 runs in three matches at an average of over 90 and a strike rate of 141.41.

Kohli might have been in top-notch form with the willow but RCB have had an abysmal campaign so far as they have managed only one win in three matches and are currently lying at the sixth spot on the IPL 2024 points table.
