Twitter reacts to Kohli hilariously as he forgets that he won the toss
Last night, Virat-led Royal Challengers Bangalore faced Sanju Samson's Rajasthan Royals in the 16th game of the Indian Premier League. During the toss, Virat Kohli called it right but went backwards and asked Samson to make his choice.
It was hilarious from Kohli as he often used to lose toses while leading his national team. Coming to the game, Virat Kohli asked the opposition to bat first after having shared some fun moments with Sanju Samson.
RCB executed their plans very well in the powerplay as they cleared the top-order with cheap scores. Jos Buttler who looked in good form in the previous game against CSK has been removed by Siraj for 8 runs.
Manan Vohra and David Miller followed him in the next two overs as Kyle Jamieson and Siraj have been successful to send them back to the dressing room. Sanju Samson wanted to take some time but Washington Sundar didn't let him settle down in the middle.

Shivam Dube and Riyan Parag added 66 runs for the fifth wicket partnership before Parag being dismissed by Harshal Patel. After that, Rahul Tewatia joined the hands with Dube and played a vital knock in the middle.
In the end, Rajasthan Royals scored 177 runs on the board with the help of Dube's 46 and Tewatia's 40. Ahead of the chase, Virat Kohli opened the innings with Devdutt Padikkal and started to go on from the first over of the second half.
The left-handed batsman has been the trouble for the Rajasthan bowlers who aggregate 101 off just 52 balls including 11 boundaries and 6 sixes to his bag. Virat Kohli on the other end has also played a crucial knock of 72 from 47 deliveries.
Both the batsmen registered the highest partnership in the history of IPL after successfully adding 181 runs and completed the chase without any loss of a wicket, Now Virat's army will be looking to face Chennai Super Kings in their upcoming encounter on Sunday.
