The video starts with a cheerful Virat, which is quite a rare moment as the Indian batting sensation is often spotted in an angry mood. But in a welcome change, Kohli was happy with Chris Gayle’s match winning efforts that saw the two-time finalists get off to a positive start in IPL 2015. He not only showered praises on the big Carribean star but also hailed the efforts of the 24-year-old Indian first class cricketer, Harshal Patel. Patel hit a courageous and timely six off KKR’s star spinner Sunil Narine in the 18th over to take the pressure off.
In this ‘The party after the storm!’ video, one can see the entire Royal Challengers Bangalore team along with the support staff enjoying themselves.
