Ipl matches are no less than a drama. It is only a halfway through the league and already the crowd is enjoying back to back jaw-dropping and nail-biting matches every day. Kohli is quite expressive on the field and has been seen always standing up for what is right. Last day in the match against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium, Kohli was seen infuriated at Third Umpire’s decision.

It happened on the 19th over of the game. The England all-rounder Chris Woakes bowled a slower length ball to Hardik Pandya. Pandya missed it and it was caught by Quinton De Kock behind the stumps who appealed to the on-field umpire. The Umpire too gave it out.

Hardik Pandya was unhappy and took a review. After a lot of time, the third umpire changed the decision and said that it wasn’t out. Though the Ultraedge on television clearly showed a treble.

Kohli could no more keep his calm and objected immediately. Here’s the video:

Mumbai at last set a target of 214 on the board’s thanks to the skipper Rohit Sharma’s astounding innings of 94. On the other hand, RCB’s wicket fell on regular intervals except Kohli standing unbeaten at 92. Kohli is the present bearer of the Orange Cap but he refused to take it. RCB now has lost three games out of four and the team is yet to count on the perfect combination.
