During the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), star batter Virat Kohli gave a testament to his sheer skill with a classical wristy shot to send a Mitchell Starc delivery over the ropes. 

In the high-profile clash against KKR, Kohli started off with a bang, hitting a boundary on the very first ball against Starc. The former RCB skipper then unleashed a vintage bottom-hand flick over deep mid-wicket against the Aussie to stun Shreyas Iyer and Co.

During the third over, Starc bowled a full-pitched delivery on the middle stump line. Kohli stood tall and effortlessly flicked it with his strong bottom hand, sending it soaring into the crowd. The Chinnaswamy Stadium erupted in jubilation at this impressive display of skill.

Virat Kohli scores a stellar 83 to propel RCB's scoreboard to a competitive total

After Shreyas Iyer opted to field first upon winning the toss, the 'Purple and Gold' army secured a significant breakthrough by dismissing Faf du Plessis early on. It was in the second over that Harshit Rana outfoxed the RCB captain with a well-executed delivery.

RCB although started well, they couldn't take their score past the lucrative 200-run mark with a flat deck on offer, known to be more conducive for the chasing team.

However, Kohli was once again the star performer for RCB with a blistering knock of 59-balls 83, coupled with quick cameos from Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green which propelled their score to 182 for 6 in 20 overs.
