IPL 2017: Virat Kohli Stuns With Scorcher of a Catch

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli took a stunning catch to show Rising Pune Supergiant opener Rahul Tripathi the way back to the pavilion in their Indian Premier League match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.

The incident happened off the second ball of the ninth over of RPS innings when Tripathi played a cracking cover drive off Pawan Negi.

Kohli dived and took a marvelous one-handed catch. Tripathi was stunned and the look on his face said it all.

WATCH:

RPS ended their three-match losing run as they defeated RCB by 27 runs. For Pune, Tripathi (31) and Ajinkya Rahane (30) provided a 63-run opening stand.

Asked to bat, Pune suffered a late batting collapse, but managed to post a competitive total of 161 for eight in 20 overs.

In reply, RCB put up a below-par show, being restricted to 134/9, as they suffered their hat-trick of losses.
