Virat Kohli and Trent Boult were seen getting involved in a friendly banter during the match between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday (April 26) at MCA Stadium in Pune. However, Kohli, soon after the incident, took an outstanding diving catch at short mid-wicket, in the over of Harshal Patel, to end Boult’s short stay in the middle.

RR struggled to get going throughout their innings against RCB during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 fixture on Tuesday (April 26). They were left reeling at 110/6 at the end of 17 overs, with Riyan Parag batting on 24 off 19 balls alongside Trent Boult. The 16th over was bowled by Wanindu Hasaranga, who returned excellent figures of 4-0-23-2. Trent Boult pushed the last ball of that over towards the deep mid-wicket, where Virat Kohli was standing.

Virat Kohli seemed to be in a good mood after a disciplined RCB bowling performance and jokingly aimed to throw at the striker’s end to get some attention from Boult. The Kiwi chuckled after watching Virat’s actions. Then, in the 18th over, Harshal Patel bowled a length ball that was angling in and Boult tried to play past short mid-wicket, where Virat Kohli made no mistake and claimed an excellent diving catch to his left to end Boult’s stay for five off seven balls.

Here is the video banter:
