[Watch]- A security guard carries an intruder on his shoulders; Virat Kohli’s epic reaction goes viral
Yesterday (Wednesday 25th May), fans at Eden Gardens, Kolkata witnessed an unexpected spectacle after a long time, during the Eliminator contest between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). An intruder seemed to be running towards Virat Kohliwho was in the field at the time.
Seeing the intruder running on the ground, a few guards rushed to interdict him. The men in charge did not let the intruder make contact with Kohli. One of the guards picked up the invader and literally rushed him over the border. Seeing the guard’s working style, Kohli was surprised. Here’s how the former RCB skipper reacted:
Seeing the scenes, fans also had different attributes for the guard. Some have referred to the WWE wrestling event while others have christened the guard as Baahubali, the fictional character from the Baahubali film series.

Also, reviewing the RCB vs LSG derby, Rajat Patidar certainly owned the show yesterday. By winning the delayed draw, LSG opted to play first. RCB seemed to be in trouble as skipper Faf du Plessis was dismissed on a Mohsin Khan Golden Duck.

The right-handed batter, full of confidence and good cricketing, scored 112 runs on 54 balls, with 12 fours and 7 sixes. Besides Patidar, Dinesh Karthik once again showed his worth, as the RCB keeper striker contributed to a quick finish. Karthik scored 37 points on 23 deliveries, with five limits and a six. For LSG, Mohsin Khan was the most economical bowler as the left arm point guard finished with excellent numbers of 4-25-1. RCB posted a whopping 207-for-four total.
LSG in response, except for skipper KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda, the batting unit couldn’t hold out for long. Rahul scored 79 carries from 58 deliveries, with 3 fours and 5 sixes. While Hooda scored 45 runs in 26 deliveries, with one limit and four sixes. Josh Hazlewood was the top performer while Harshal Patel again proved to be the most economical bowler for RCB yesterday.
