NEW DELHI: Star Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) player Virat Kohli‘s precision in the field was on full display as his direct-hit dismissed the dangerous Gujarat Titans (GT) batter Shahrukh Khan during the IPL 2024 match in Bengaluru.
With his trademark accuracy and athleticism, Kohli showcased why he’s considered one of the best fielders in the game. As the crowd erupted in cheers, Kohli’s impact on the field reverberated, underscoring his invaluable contribution to his team’s success.
Teammate Cameron Green‘s awe-filled reaction to witnessing Kohli’s exceptional fielding skills up close added an extra layer of appreciation to the moment.
As Kohli executed the direct-hit to dismiss Shahrukh, Green’s astonishment was palpable, reflecting the admiration shared by teammates and fans alike for Kohli’s brilliance on the field.

The incident occurred in the 13th over of the game, when GT batter Rahul Tewatia played RCB pacer Vijaykumar Vyshak’s delivery with soft hands towards the off-side. Shahrukh got off the blocks to go for a quick run, and Tewatia sent him back, but it was too late by then, as an alert Kohli wasted no time and nailed a direct-hit in one motion at the bowler’s end to rattle the stumps.

GT innings were in tatters as they were five down after the departure of Shahrukh, who made 24-ball 37 with the help of five fours and a six, at the score of 87.
