VIDEO : Brilliant Review By Virat Kohli to Dismiss Tripathi

Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator in Sharjah. No Andre Russell as both teams make no changes.

Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer begin Kolkata Knight Riders’ 139-run chase in the Eliminator against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kolkata Knight Riders need 139 to win. Sunil Narine starred for KKR as he dismissed Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, and KS Bharat to restrict RCB to 139/7 in 20 overs. Lockie Ferguson also picked up two wickets including the wicket of Devdutt Padikkal who chopped the ball onto the stumps after Virat Kohli and him got off to a flying start.

After a poor middle-order show, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) added 138 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs vs Kolkata Knight Riders.

So a good start to the chase from Kolkata Knight Riders as they have made 48/1 in the Powerplay. Royal Challengers Bangalore won’t be unhappy either as they managed to pick the all-important wicket of Shubman Gill in it.

Chahal was brought into the attack. And he gets Iyer. Second wicket down. Game is turning. Huge appeal for leg before, but not given. Kohli reviews. The ball strikes Tripathi’s front pad as he looks to jab at that but is beaten. Hits him just above his knee after pitching on a good length outside off, and turning sharply into him. No inside edge is confirmed by UltraEdge. And replays show the ball would have taken the leg stump.

The on-field umpire’s decision was originally not out but Virat Kohli went for the review. Ball tacking confirms that the delivery is hitting the stumps.

It was very good review by royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli on the pressure.
