Virat-Shami Smiles, Fours, Then Wicket!


When the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans took to the field for their IPL encounter on Saturday, it was nice to see Virat Kohli greet his India team-mate Mohammed Shami.

Kohli wore a broad smile as the duo, both playing for opposing teams on the evening, shook hands and shared a few words before taking to the field.

Kohli went on to hit a half century (58 off 53 balls) — his first in 14 IPL innings — his innings studded with crisp drives down the ground, through cover and on the leg side.

Virat smashed two back-to-back boundaries off Shami in the first over to kickstart things for his team.

In the 13th over, Kohli scored his half-century in 45 balls amid cheers from the Brabourne crowd.
