IPL 2021 RCB Vs KKR Eliminator News Virat Kohli Throws Ball On Ground Before Confronting Umpires


New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s dream of leading franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to their maiden title win in the Indian Premier League (IPL) was crushed on Monday Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Bangalore by four wickets in the Eliminator match to knock them out of the tournament. Kolkata will now face Delhi in Qualifier 2 on Wednesday and the winning team will take on Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021 final on Friday.

Meanwhile, there was a moment during the match when Virat was seen confronting the umpires. The incident happened in the seventh over of KKR’s innings. A delivery from leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal went straight to hit the pad of KKR batsman Rahul Tripathi.

Chahal and other Bangalore players made a strong LBW appeal which was turned down by the umpire. Virat immediately took DRS and on-field umpire Virender Sharma’s ‘not out’ decision was overturned by third umpire Anil Chaudhary. Reacting to this, the RCB skipper first angrily threw the ball on ground before heading towards on-field umpires for an animated discussion. 

Virat Kohli was unhappy with Virender Sharma’s overall umpiring in the match as during RCB’s innings, two decisions from Virender Sharma were overturned by third umpire.

Talking about the match, Sunil Narine starred in the RCB vs KKR eliminator. First, he wreaked havoc with his bowling, picking four wickets for just 21 runs in his spell four overs to restrict RCB to a paltry 138/7 in 20 overs. While chasing the target, Narine hit three consecutive sixes in the first three balls of his innings to kill the match for Bangalore. He was also awarded the ‘Man of the Match’ award for this all-round performance.
