IPL 2019: Twitterati Unimpressed With Virat Kohli’s Send-Off To Ravichandran Ashwin
Well, Virat Kohli has always been on the headlines for obvious reasons. Though most of them because of breaking the records but this time, it is for another reason, as he once again showed his wrong side on the field against Kings XI Punjab at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The crowd hasn’t liked his send-off to Ravichandran Ashwin.
The incident took place in the final over of the match when Ravichandran Ashwin was dismissed to Umesh Yadav after whacking a six off the first ball. Virat Kohli, who caught the ball at the long-on region has given him a heated send-off, which didn’t go down well with the Twitter users.
Well, Ravichandran Ashwin played down by calling that the skipper of RCB and himself plays the game passionately. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli hasn’t responded anything on it, as he wants to enjoy the victory, which is their 3rd on a row.
Virat Kohli-led side won the match:
Coming to the match, initially, it was Kings XI Punjab bowlers, who were on top of the game. However, the steady partnership from AB de Villiers and Marcus Stoinis changed the complexion of the game.
AB de Villiers, in particular, was exceptional in the middle, He whacked KXIP bowlers to all corners of the park to help Bangalore score a massive tally on the board. He was well supported by Stoinis, who also showed his charisma with the bat in the death overs.
Chasing a total of 203 to win, KXIP had a good start, and, were ahead in the game for a brief moment. But they lost out on the key moments, something which has been his team’s Achilles heel in their last few games in IPL 2019 so far. However, it was one tough pill for Punjab to swallow.
In both fixtures, Royal Challengers Bangalore won the game comfortably. At Punjab home venue, RCB chased it down while in their venue, they defended the tally successfully.
Here are a few tweets:
Did you watch yesterday’s match between Punjab and Bangalore.

What's wrong with u Virat Kohli. This is not a celebration it's abusing someone. Ashwin is ur team mate. Give respect ur team mate.
This is unacceptable from Indian Captain.
At d end of d day you'll be remembered for ur behavior

Certainly, Virat Kohli is the world’s greatest batsmen of the present time but would he ever become the world’s greatest player? @bhogleharsha @BCCI @imVkohli @ashwinravi99

@IPL @StarSportsIndia @imVkohli U r the best batsman in the world. Aggression is a part of the gamebut the way u celebrated after ashwin wicket we can say it over reaction or a revenge type.A very immature action by a great player like u.Need to improve.#IPL #RCBvKXIP #Kohli

Earlier it was @GautamGambhir vs @msdhoni Now it was @imVkohli vs @ashwinravi99.. Does Nepotism ruling players out of Indian team or its jus their out of form play. Yesterdays incident doesn't seem to be made out of passion towards sport. Clear picture of Bitterness!!
