Punjab Kings Share Heartfelt Post For Struggling Virat Kohli

New Delhi: Punjab Kings (PBKS) took to social media to share a heartfelt post for the former Indian cricket team and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli. The sweet gesture from the franchise comes after Virat was dismissed for just 20 runs off 14 balls in RCB’s IPL 2022 match against Punjab Kings. Chasing a mammoth 210-run target, Virat, regarded as the ‘chase master’, had a big responsibility to power his team off to a good start but luck didn’t favour him once again. Virat was dismissed by Kagiso Rabada on his 2nd delivery. The big breakthrough put PBKS on top and Bangalore couldn’t recover from there. RCB bowled out on 155/9, losing the match by 54 runs.

Kohli’s cheap dismissal once again became the biggest talking point in RCB’s loss against Punjab. After the match, PBKS posted a heartfelt post for Kohli on Instagram. “Virat Kohli, even we enjoyed while it lasted. Hope luck turns on your side soon,” PBKS wrote on Instagram.

With defeat against Punjab, Bangalore’s hopes of qualifying for the playoffs sustained a major blow. RCB’s next match is against Gujarat Titans. The match will be a must-win game for RCB.  After defeating Gujarat, RCB will be able to qualify for the playoffs only on the basis of net run rate.

Virat Kohli is going through the worst phase in the IPL. In season 15, Kohli has scored only 236 runs in 13 matches at an average of 19.67.
