After the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharamsala on Thursday (May 9), RCB’s star batter Virat Kohli took a heartwarming initiative. Despite RCB securing a 60-run victory over PBKS and knocking them out of the tournament, Kohli extended a gracious gesture by meeting the family members of PBKS players.

RCB’s dominant performance

RCB’s playoff aspirations were kept alive by their impressive performance, posting a formidable score of 241/7, courtesy of brilliant innings from Kohli (92), Rajat Patidar (55) and Cameron Green (46). In response, PBKS could only muster 181 runs in their allotted 20 overs. Despite valiant efforts from Rilee Rossouw (61 off 27 balls) and Shashank Singh (37 off 17 balls), PBKS fell short.
