Virat Kohli did not have a memorable outing against Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League on Thursday. The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain was at fault on two occasions when he dropped catches of match-winner KL Rahul while also not contributing much with the bat.
Kohli’s two drop catches proved costly as Rahul went on to slam a record-breaking hundred against RCB at the Dubai International Stadium. RCB eventually lost the match by a big margin of 97 runs.
Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh as it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences.
