In what was one of the best moments of IPL 2018, teenage sensation, Rahman, castled the great Virat Kohli with one of the best deliveries of the tournament.
The Bengaluru crowd were shocked, as seventeen year old Afghan flummoxed one of the greatest batsmen in limited overs cricket.
Kohli could not believe it, as he did not pick that googly at all, as he walked away in disappointment. The RCB skipper looked in great touch, as he was intent on performing for the massive crowd that had come to the Chinnaswamy stadium.
Anushka Sharma was also shocked, as she could not believe her husband’s dismissal.

RCB won the match though eventually, as AB de Villiers played a superb innings to guide his team home.
This is what Kohli had to say after the match,
“Very happy. First home game is crucial. Last year, we couldn’t get off to a start. Crowd has a lot of expectations, and tonight was a game we wanted badly, especially in the initial stages of the tournament. We knew new ball will come on nicely, and the batsmen hit some good shots. Umesh bowled well; getting three wickets in an over is great.”
“(The pitch is) Slightly better than the last year but against the older ball, middle overs can be difficult. We have lost two wickets in two balls in the last two games, so we have to work on them. Maybe stitch a little partnership. Back to back wickets pushes you back in the eight ball.”
