When Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) took on Mumbai Indians (MI) Wednesday there were plenty of incidents that had netizens debating well after the match ended. There was a battle of words between Mumbai all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Bangalore bowler Chris Morris, an exchange between two other players and a gesture at the end that got a lot of praise.

Mumbai Indians won the match by 5 wickets thanks to Suryakumar Yadav who scored 79 off 43 balls and took his team to victory and a playoff spot. But an incident involving Yadav and Bangalore captain Virat Kohli mid-way through the Mumbai inning had many commenting on it.

In the 13th over, with the match still in the balance, Kohli walked to where Yadav was while shining the ball. While Kohli could be seen saying something, it wasn’t clear what it was. But Yadav picked up his bat and walked away.

Here’s how people reacted to it:

After guiding his team to victory in the last over, Yadav took off his helmet and gestured to the dug-out, seemingly reassuring them. Many commented on the gesture and praised Yadav’s performance, especially given it came after he wasn’t selected for the Indian team:

Yadav, who has enjoyed a good run of form in the shortest format of the game was the highest run-scorer for Mumbai Indians in 2018 and the second-highest scorer in 2019. His exclusion from the Indian team has prompted criticism from some quarters.
