Watch: 'Old Virat Kohli back' - Kohli runs across to celebrate in front of David Warner after DRS works in RCB's favour; Australian left unimpressed
Virat Kohli was seen celebrating right in front of David Warner's face after the Australian was given out LBW post a DRS review by Royal Challengers Bangalore. DC had gotten off to a great start courtesy Prithvi Shaw and Warner with the duo putting together a third-successive fifty-run opening stand.
Even as RCB managed to dismiss Shaw, Warner continued in the same vein, taking on the bowlers with disdain and threatening to single-handedly chase the target down for Delhi Capitals. At this stage, Wanindu Hasaranga entered the picture and off the leggie, Warner tried a switch hit only to rapped on the pads.
While RCB were vociferous in their appeal, there was no response from the on-field umpire, prompting Faf du Plessis to go for the review. Virat Kohli was seen animated in the RCB huddle after that as the DRS call went, mouthing a few words in David Warner's direction.
As the replays showed Warner was trapped in front, Kohli ran across so Warner could see and celebrated right in front of his face in his usual extravagant manner, prompting Warner to look back and murmur something in the direction of the RCB player.
