Cricket News: Virat Kohli, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, is not afraid to fling himself around on the pitch. While he has already made a couple of outstanding catches on the field, he was on the verge of making another, an effort that would have taken some time to sink in. Despite the fact that it was not a catch, Kohli’s remarkable save made for great watching for viewers as he performed a full-length dive to save a bullet ball from Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Chris Morris.
The attempt occurred during the penultimate over of Rajasthan’s innings, which was bowled by Mohammed Siraj. While the first two balls had only gone for singles, the Men in Pink were aiming for some quick runs to finish the inning on a high note.
As a result, Morris attempted an elaborate shot and appeared to have timed it perfectly until Kohli appeared out of nowhere and not only rushed towards the ball but also took the ball on the full, all in one motion.
The Bangalore captain was also fast to return it, and what appeared to be a boundary shot did not even go for a single. Kohli’s effort has gone popular on the internet.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing encounter at the Dubai International Stadium, Bangalore has put up a strong fight. While Rajasthan had reached 100/1 in 11 overs and appeared to be on track for the first 200-plus total in the UAE leg of this season, the Bangalore bowlers brought them back in big time.
Rajasthan eventually finished their innings at 149/9. Bangalore’s bowlers of choice were Harshal Patel (3/34), Yuzvendra Chahal (2/18), and Shahbaz Ahmed (2/10). Rajasthan’s leading run-scorers were openers Evin Lewis (58) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (31) but neither batted through the innings to assist them to attain the total they desired.
If Rajasthan wins, they would join the Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians on 10 points, but if Bangalore wins, they will be on 14 points.
