“Kohli ko bowling do” Mumbai crowd mocks RCB star after his bowlers were hammered by MI

Mumbai Indians gave a proper thrashing to the Royal Challengers Bengaluru's bowlers as the five-time champions chased down 197 runs inside 16 overs.

The Mumbai Indians turned a high-scoring encounter into a one-sided affair against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Thursday. RCB set a target of 197 runs, but the MI batsmen came out firing on all cylinders, chasing down the total with 7 wickets to spare.

Crowd chants “Kohli ko bowling do”, the great man reacts

MI’s batting display was a masterclass in aggression. Every batsman took on the RCB bowling attack from the outset, peppering the boundaries with fours and sixes. The RCB bowlers were unable to find any respite, with none of them managing to take wickets at crucial junctures.

The crowd at the Wankhede Stadium witnessed some lighthearted banter directed at Virat Kohli. As RCB’s bowling attack struggled, a section of the fans started chanting “Kohli ko bowling do (Give the ball to Kohli),” a playful jab suggesting that perhaps even Kohli’s part-time bowling could offer more than the frontline bowlers.

Kohli acknowledged the chants with a smile and a wave, signaling his disapproval of the idea. These chants were reminiscent of those heard during India’s matches at the 2023 ODI World Cup.
