Virat Kohli was at his fiery best for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Match 16 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, smashing an unbeaten half-century during their win vs Rajasthan Royals (RR), at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. RCB have been in excellent form this year, and haven’t lost a match yet. The win against RR is their fourth on the trot. Reaching his first fifty of the season in the second delivery of the 13th over, Kohli first raised his bat towards his teammates in the dugout, then he pointed towards the stands and dedicated the knock to his daughter by doing a cradle celebration.
Here is the video of Kohli’s celebration:

During Match 16, RCB initially won the toss, and Kohli elected to bowl. RR had a poor outing with the bat, managing to set a target of 178 runs, which RCB chased in 16.3 overs without losing any wicket.
Kohli’s action-packed innings (72 in 47 balls) also consisted of six fours and three sixes.
His opening partner Devdutt Padikkal also remained unbeaten and slammed his maiden IPL century. He scored 101 runs off 52 balls, packed with 11 fours and six sixes.
Kohli’s outfit haven’t lost a single match this season, and their winning run began with the IPL 2021 opener, when they defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) on April 9. On the other hand, RR are bottom of the table with only one win from four games.
