Did Virat Kohli Use Abusive Language After Running Out Andre Russell?

Did Virat Kohli get too carried away celebrating Andre Russell's wicket?

As Kohli put an end to Andre Russell’s carnage in yesterday’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore, he allegedly gave him an abusive sendoff. Kolkata KKR’s explosive all-rounder, Russell, almost took the game away from Royal Challengers Bangalore with his his unreal partnership of 118 runs from 48 balls with Nitish Rana.

It’s a good thing that the Windies all-rounder is not too familiar with Hindi language abuses. Otherwise, he would have a thing or two to say to Kohli too. The KKR MVP scored 65 runs from just 25 deliveries including 2 fours and 9 huge sixes.

Here’s the clip of Russell’s dismissal in the final over:

Here are a few reactions directed towards the centurion of yesterday’s game:

However, Kohli firmly believes that what happens on the field, stays on the field. The RCB captain was later photographed talking to the KKR giant quite amicably.

The Indian skipper was all praises for the Caribbean giant as he said, “Russell is hitting the ball as well as I know anyone has”.
