Although he might be going through a bad patch of batting form. Virat Kohli showed fans that he can still contribute to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in other ways in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season on Saturday. Kohli was dismissed after only registering 12 runs off 14 balls against Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, but pulled off a fantastic one-handed catch to send opposition captain Rishabh Pant back to the pavilion. On the 17th over of the chase, Pant received a wide full toss from Mohammed Siraj and tried to send it over extra cover. But the DC captain toe-ended his shot towards Kohli at extra cover, who instinctively hopped and completed a one-handed stunner. After completing the catch, Kohli’s celebration included waving to wife Anushka Sharma in the stands.
Here is the video of Kohli’s one-handed stunner to dismiss Pant and also of his celebration with wife Anushka:
