IPL 2019: Karma returns! It is so true as fans got to witness during the RCB v KXIP clash. It was Ravichandran Ashwin who started it by giving Virat Kohli a send-off after he was dismissed for 13 off eight balls. The episode did not end there as Kohli returned the favour after he took the catch of Ashwin in the long on boundary. Kohli reacted as if to suggest ‘why are you still waiting’ now that you have been caught. It was clear that Kohli was pumped up and animated.
Here is the video where you can see Ashwin starting it and then Kohli ending it in style:
Eventually, RCB beat KXIP by 17 runs ensuring they stay afloat in the league. AB De Villiers bagged the Man of the match for his breathtaking 44-ball 82.
“I tried to stay calm in the last few overs. It is not easy always, the game is happening at a rapid pace. We know our home ground very well, it hasn’t been a great hunting ground for us to start with but we are turning things around now. And we are doing things well now. We are doing good as a team now. I still think 160 was a par score but it gets easier in the second innings. Our bowlers executed their plans to perfection in the end,” said De Villiers at the post-match presentation while taking his award.
