Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma shared one of the moments of the IPL in the MI vs RCB game at the Wankhede.
A video that has surfaced on social media today shows Virat Kohli asking Rohit Sharma if the ball hit his bat before probably going in for a review.
Rohit Sharma, being the sport that he is, told Virat Kohli that he had infact edged it, thus helping RCB retain a review.
The moment has caught the imagination of many on social media, as it shows the camaraderie between the two players, even though they were involved in a heated on field battle.

The bowler had asked Kohli to go up for the review and Kohli instead of consulting his own teammates decided to check with Rohit first, if he had edged the ball.
It was lovely to see Rohit responding to Kohli’s question, something that would cheer up every Indian fan.
Hopefully we get to see more of such instances in the future.
The MI vs RCB game, in which this incident took place saw both, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli getting 90+ scores to help their teams get respectable totals on the board.
Virat Kohli’s valiant effort was in vain as none of the RCB batsman stuck around him, playing silly shots and holing out in the deep.
Kohli was clearly frustrated after the game but would be happy that the batting unit stepped up during their following game against DD at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
