Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s star players Virat Kohli and Cameron Green were involved in a funny moment during the side’s IPL 2024 game against Kolkata Knight Riders at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday. Virat scored an unbeaten 83 off 59 balls in the first innings of the game and surpassed SunRisers Hyderabad’s Heinrich Klaasen to become the leading run-scorer in IPL 2024. During the mid-innings presentation, Green showed up with the Orange Cap to give it to Kohli, and he ended up giving both the cap and the mic to the India player.

The moment took a funny turn when the commentator said that he wants to talk to Green not Kohli. The former RCB skipper then laughingly threw the mic towards Green with the Australian shooing Kohli away in a funny manner.

Watch it here:

Kohli batted out the innings for Royal Challengers Bengaluru with his second straight Indian Premier League half-century on Friday but Kolkata Knight Riders still cruised to a seven-wicket victory.

Chasing the home side’s 182-6, Kolkata reached their target with 19 balls to spare when skipper Shreyas Iyer hit an unruffled six off Mayank Dagar. Their chase was off to a roaring start with Phil Salt (30) and all-rounder Sunil Narine (47) putting on 86 for the visitors, earning fulsome praise from Bengaluru captain Faf du Plessis.

Narine hit five sixes in his 22-ball knock before Dagar bowled him in the seventh, with Salt following in the next over when he was caught at deep square leg.

Venkatesh Iyer made 50 to keep up the momentum before he was caught by Kohli while Shreyas saw out the innings with his 39.

Kohli notched up 83 and made his 50 off 36 balls, throwing a thumbs-up to the jubilant home crowd, and his knock made him the leading tournament run-scorer since the season began last week.

But a lack of able partners left Bengaluru’s innings a one-man show.
