Indian superstar Virat Kohli is known for his passion, energy, and extreme determination every time he steps onto the cricketing field. Whether playing for India or representing the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Kohli always comes on top and gives his 100%.
But quite naturally, his emotion while wearing the India jersey is unmatchable and such was on display in the Friday night fixture against Australia in Nagpur. Ahead of the start of the second T20I, which was delayed by a couple of hours due to a wet outfield, players like Kohli, Harshal Patel, and Yuzvendra Chahal were seen standing near the gallery of the dressing room waiting eagerly for the match to begin.
Upon seeing their favourite star, the crowd at the VCA Stadium started chanting, ‘RCB! RCB!’ but Kohli was not impressed by the behaviour of fans as he immediately pointed towards the India badge on his jersey to remind them that the former skipper was representing India and not the IPL franchise RCB. The section of the crowd was quick to spot this and stopped the RCB chants before they began cheering for Kohli.

Speaking about the match, Team India registered a thrilling win over the Aussies to keep the three-match series alive. Due to the rain and wet outfield, the contest was reduced to an eight-over-a-side match where the tourists piled up 90/5 thanks to Matthew Wade’s quickfire 43 not out.
In response, the hosts managed to gun down the target with four balls to spare, courtesy of Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s batting brilliance. The right-handed batter smashed an unbeaten 46 off 20 deliveries with the help of 4 fours and as many sixes.
