In the 58th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) secured a commanding victory over Punjab Kings (PBKS) with a staggering 60-run margin. The spotlight of the day was on Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket icon, who exhibited a stellar performance in Dharamshala on Thursday. Kohli showcased his batting prowess by smashing 92 runs off just 47 deliveries, embellished with seven boundaries and six maximums, at a blistering strike rate of 195.74. His explosive innings propelled RCB to a formidable total of 241/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

Adding to his brilliance, Kohli also displayed exceptional fielding skills by executing a remarkable run-out, dismissing PBKS’ star batter Shashank Singh.

In the 14th over of the second innings, PBKS skipper Sam Curran faced a challenging delivery from Lockie Ferguson, which pitched at the stumps with significant pace. Curran skillfully directed it towards midwicket, initially settling for a single before pushing for a second run. His partner, Shashank, responded to the call, but in a surprising turn of events, Kohli sprinted in from the boundary and executed a pinpoint throw directly to the bowler’s end. This direct hit was a moment of brilliance, resulting in the dismissal of Shashank and dealing another blow to the hosts, reducing their score to 151 for 6 in 13.4 overs.
