WATCH : Laughing Kohli’s exaggerated leave against Ashwin sparks World T20 nostalgia


Expecting dew later in the game, Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and elected to bowl. RCB’s Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis made a solid start, scoring 53 runs in the powerplay.

However, there was a light-hearted moment when Kohli mimicked Ashwin’s move from the 2022 T20 World Cup. In the seventh over, Ashwin bowled a fuller delivery towards the leg stump, which Kohli cleverly avoided by shifting his position.

Had Kohli not adjusted, the ball would have hit him. This incident mirrored Ashwin’s similar move against Mohammad Nawaz in the 2022 T20 World Cup, a match that became iconic for India.

Kohli couldn’t contain his laughter as he looked at Ashwin after the wide signal from the umpire. Twitter users found it entertaining to see Kohli replicate Ashwin’s tactic against the seasoned bowler himself.
