IPL 2021: RCB skipper Virat Kohli takes stunning catch to send Ruturaj Gaikwad back – Watch video

IPL 2021, RCB vs CSK: Virat Kohli’s stunning catch: Arguably, the world’s best batsman, one of the most successful captains and a supreme fielder, Virat Kohli wears many hats. But against Chennai Super Kings, it was Virat Kohli’s supreme athleticism while fielding that stole the limelight. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper’s superb diving catch of Ruturaj Gaikwad stunned everyone including the batsman.

It was so stunning that the third umpire had to come in and take a look but Michael Gough delivered his verdict sending Ruturaj Gaikwad back. The CSK opener, who has been in great form, looked to hammer Yuzvendra Chahal for a four but his intention was undone by Virat Kohli at backward point as he rushed and dived to take the stunner.

Before this match, RCB have struggled with their opening pair failing to fire in tandem. On Friday, both of them brought up their half-centuries after MS Dhoni put RCB into bat. But despite the duo’s partnership, RCB lost steam and ended up with 156/6 in 20 overs.
