RCB captain Virat Kohli on Monday got into a heated argument with the umpire for a wrong decision. He lost his cool during the last ball of the 7th over bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal. The ball apparently hit the pads first but Virender Sharma had other views. He called it and Kohli went straightaway with the review.
It’s a googly from Chahal that turned in from a length on middle, hit the knee-roll, then onto the inside edge. RCB players roared as they saw the first replay. The ball went on to crash into the top of the leg stump.

NOTE: It was the third time that a decision from umpire Virender Sharma has been overturned tonight.
Reacting to the development, on-air commentator and India legend Sunil Gavaskar said, “He (umpire) doesn’t owe an explanation. It’s right or wrong, it’s his call.”
While some users lashed at Kohli’s reaction, others used memes just for the sake of fun.
