The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper, Virat Kohli won the toss in the tournament opener of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 against Mumbai Indians (MI). As RCB came out to bowl, there were many moments of clownery and, some dropped catches as well. But among all the quirky moments, Kohli’s moment of madness garnered a lot of limelight. The RCB skipper once again gave a timely reminder why he is the best in the world in terms of dropping sitters.

Virat Kohli suffered a blow to his eye

At 146/5 at the start of the 18th over, MI’s innings was slowing down and they were looking to go all guns blazing. bly and were looking to unleash. And so, when Kyle Jamieson landed one in the slot, Krunal Pandya’s decided to go hard and he tried to hit it hard straight down the ground. To his dismay, though, he didn’t get the elevation and the ball and looked like it was headed straight to the hands of the Virat Kohli fielder at mid-off.

Well, the ball did travel straight to mid-off, but luckily for Krunal, the RCB skipper ended up dropping the catch lending the senior Pandya a life. As the ball headed straight to him, the RCB skipper, somehow, made a meal of it. He lost both the trajectory of the ball as it was smashed at a fierce pace and his balance and quite amusingly not just dropped it, but ended up hurting himself.

Kohli misjudged the incoming ball and it hit his face, giving him a black eye. As if it wasn’t enough embarrassment already, though, Kohli’s brain and mind, too, stopped working soon as two balls later, he gifted MI a free hit by not having enough fielders outside the circle.
