The 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has become highly competitive with five teams holding 10 points each, and two teams with eight points. The remaining 17 league matches of the season will have a significant impact on these teams’ chances of making the playoffs.
Two of the five teams with 10 points each are the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians, who will face each other at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday. Both teams will be eager to secure their sixth win of the season, particularly after suffering defeats in their previous matches.
A moment featuring Virat Kohli has been making waves on the internet ahead of the match at the Wankhede. This incident stands in stark contrast to the recent conversation on social media, particularly after the Gautam Gambhir incident in Lucknow on May 1.
In the video, which has gone viral on Twitter and Instagram, Kohli can be seen walking up the stairs after his practice session when he was called by one of the ball boys. The ball boy waved at Kohli and requested for his bat.
Kohli smiled, acknowledged the request, and then signaled a staff member to hand over one of his bats to the ball boy. It was a heartening moment for fans to witness Kohli’s graciousness and willingness to help out.
