Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli celebrated in style after losing 9th toss in the Indian Premier League. Out of 12 matches in IPL 2019, Kohli-led RCB have lost the toss 9 times and that left Virat Kohli very frustrated.

Kohli however did not lose his cool and celebrated the loss in style. While commentator Anjum Chopra was in conversation with Delhi Capitals’ skipper Shreyas Iyer, Kohli turned around and pointed nine fingers and pumped up his fist.


Delhi Capitals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 16 runs as they moved up to take the top spot on the points table. Delhi Capitals also qualified for the play-offs for the first time after 2012.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer contributed with the bat along side Shikhar Dhawan and Sherfane Rutherford. Iyer scored 52 off 37 balls while Dhawan scored 50 off 37. Rutherford came in and scored 28 runs in the end to take Delhi Capitals to 187 from 20 overs.

For Royal Challengers Bangalore, Parthiv Patel was the highest run scorer as he hit 39 off 20. Skipper Virat Kohli scored 23 off 17 before he was dismissed by Axar Patel while playing a pull shot. De Villiers was struggling to score runs as he was dismissed by Rutherford for 17 runs.

Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Marcus Stoinis also contributed few runs from their bats but it wasn’t enough as they could only make 171 runs from 20 overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore is now out of contention in the Indian Premier League 2019 as they have lost eight out of the 12 matches they played.
