Sportsmanship Soaring! Sanju Samson soothes RCB players in dressing room, dejected Virat Kohli sits alone

Virat Kohli is currently the leading run-scorer in IPL 2024, with 316 runs in five innings

RCB star Virat Kohli was left feeling dejected after Royal Challengers Bengaluru were handed their fourth loss of the IPL 2024. Kohli smashed a gritty unbeaten century, but it was not enough as Jis Buttler slammed another unbeaten 100 to give Rajasthan Royals a 6-wicket victory.

In a video shared by the outfit, the former India captain was seen sitting alone on a chair away from the team. However, in a rather heartwarming moment, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson was seen consoling the players in the RCB dressing room.

Despite RCB’s defeat, Virat Kohli showcased a resurgence in form by smashing his eighth IPL century – his ninth overall in T20 cricket. His unbeaten innings of 113 runs off just 72 balls, featuring four sixes and twelve boundaries, played a pivotal role in RCB’s total of 183/3.
