Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli lost his cool during an IPL 2018 encounter against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 17.
The incident happened during the 19th over of Mumbai innings when the caught-behind decision against Hardik Pandya was overturned despite UltraEdge showing a murmur.
Chris Woakes bowled a slower length ball to Pandya, who missed it while trying to defend it on the front foot. The ball travelled to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock who appealed for caught-behind. On-field umpire raised his finger and called it out.

Unhappy with the decision, Pandya opted for a review. After several replays, the third-umpire overturned the original decision and gave a lifeline to Pandya despite the UltraEdge showing some murmur when the ball passed the bat.
WICKET! Woakes gets Pollard & then thinks he has two in two but the caught behind decision against Hardik Pandya is overturned despite UltraEdge showing a murmur. Woakes & Kohli not happy.

Following this, RCB skipper lost his cool and raised an objection with the on-field umpires.
Meanwhile, riding on Rohit Sharma’s 94 and Evin Lewis 64, Mumbai finished 213-6 in their allotted 20 overs despite losing two wickets in first two balls of their innings.
Earlier, RCB skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field against a winless Mumbai.
