BCCI President Sourav Ganguly was present at the Eden Gardens when Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clashed with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on May 25 in the IPL 2022 Eliminator and his reaction to a drive played by RCB’s Virat Kohli has gone viral on social media.
RCB defeated LSG by 14 runs after setting them a target of 208 runs after being asked to bat first as LSG captain KL Rahul won the toss. Rajat Patidar made 112* with 12 fours and 7 sixes, while Dinesh Karthik made 37* and Virat Kohli contributed 25 runs.
In reply, KL Rahul with 79 and Deepak Hooda with 45 led the attack, but LSG left it a little too late to the final charge and in the end fell 14 runs short.
Meanwhile, though Virat Kohli made only 25 runs, he played some soul-warming shots and one of the drives played on the offside against Dushmantha Chameera elicited a brilliant reaction for Sourav Ganguly who was in the stands, as BCCI secretary Jay Shah clapped as well.
Here is the video of Ganguly’s reaction to Kohli’s shot:
