MI took a subtle dig at RCB skipper Virat Kohli for staring at Surya Kumar Yadav during the match.
Surya had guided MI to 5-wicket win over RCB on October 28.
The ‘stare battle’ between Surya Kumar Yadav and Virat Kohli during Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clash has become the talk of the town. The fans are busy talking about it on social media.
The thrilling episode took place on the final ball of the 13th over when Kohli after saving a shot from the batsman at the extra cover, started walking towards him with a stare. Surya Kumar, on the other hand, did not back down either as he too gazed at the RCB skipper.
Kohli then came and stood right beside Surya while shining the ball. However, the Mumbai batsman showed outstanding maturity by silently walking away towards the other end.
