Virat Kohli and Sanju Samson had a funny moment before the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Virat Kohli, the RCB captain, forgot that he had claimed the toss during the game.
He took a step back, lost in his own thoughts and fantasies, and let Sanju Samson make the decision. He did, however, realise that he had won the toss. Kohli said, “Hey, I won the toss.” Ian Bishop, the toss master, was left speechless.
They were both able to see the lighter side of things. Kohli, in the end, chose to bat first on a fantastic batting pitch at the historic venue. The video was shared on the Indian Premier League’s official Twitter account (IPL).
The Challengers have taken all three of their games in the cash-rich league and have yet to lose a set. They left Rajat Patidar out of their fourth game and replaced him with Kane Richardson, an Australian fast bowler. Virat said that the RCB has the batting ability to chase down every steep mark in Mumbai.
“It’s still a high-scoring setting. Last night, we saw that even if you lose early wickets, all it takes is one partnership to keep you in the game. As a party, we’ve been hitting well. We’re confident that we’ll be able to track down something. We’re still bowling well at the moment. “All we want to do now is get onto this pitch and these conditions with the new ball and see what we can,” RCB Captain Virat Kohli said.

The Royals, on the other hand, are in seventh position after three games with one draw. Though Samson recognises that “ups and downs” are unavoidable, he is optimistic in his team’s ability to recover. Jaydev Unadkat was substituted by leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal for the Royals.
“Batting first would be a positive experience for the batsmen. As we saw in the previous game, things can get close in the end. It’s fairly balanced; what we need to do now is play some decent cricket. It’s just about manipulating the emotions. In the IPL, there will be ups and downs.

“It’s important to have faith in yourself and your teammates. There isn’t anything to contemplate. Simply believe in yourself. “One change: Gopal takes the role of Unadkat,” Samson said.
