Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Kohli played fantastic innings as he smashed 90 runs off 52 balls, which helped his team put up a total of 169 runs. Owing to splendid ball striking by Kohli, the team racked up 66 runs in the last four overs of the innings.

Not all of that came in boundaries. Kohli kept rotating the strike and picked many runs through legwork. In the last over alone, he took four doubles. He was already playing in the 80s having spent quite a lot of time on the crease. His tireless effort and fitness was hailed by several fans.

“Beating MS Dhoni's speed with gloves on, just has to be Virat Kohli,” wrote on Twitter user, alongside pictures of Kohli sliding past Dhoni as the latter attempted to run him out.

The clip attracted some hilarious comments and memes. Take this for example:

The user calls Dhoni 4G and the batsman Kohli 5G.

One user shared this funny cartoon clip drawing parallel with Kohli’s running.

“That is not as close as it looked man. Unreal. He's at least 8 inches away and MS has the ball in his gloves,” read a tweet.

Here’s another post lauding Kohli’s fitness:

There were some comments in support of MS Dhoni as well. One user blamed the throw to be late and hence not a fault of Dhoni.

It is hard to pick sides between two of the sport’s greatest, so we’ll leave the debate to the fans. On this day though, Kohli was the better man, as he got his team the win over CSK and also became the man of the match for his performance with the bat.
