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

The moment took a funny turn when the commentator said he wanted to talk to Green and not Kohli. The former RCB skipper then threw the microphone at Green while laughing, while the Australian jokingly shooed Kohli away.

Check it out here:

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

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

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

Venkatesh Iyer made 50 to maintain the momentum before being caught by Kohli, while Shreyas saw out the innings with his 39.

Kohli scored 83 to make his 50 off 36 balls as he gave a thumbs up to the jubilant home crowd, and his knock made him the tournament’s leading run-scorer since the season started last week.

But due to a lack of capable partners, Bengaluru’s innings remained a one-man show.
