The incident happened in the 18th over when Kohli was walking near the boundary ropes and he waved his hand at someone in the stands. It turned out to be a fan, dressed in PBKS’ jersey, and he looked like Dhawan. Realizing that the fan was a doppleganger and not Dhawan, the former RCB skipper was left in splits.

Here is the video:

The match saw RCB skipper Faf du Plessis win the toss and opt to bowl. PBKS had a shaky start, losing opener Jonny Bairstow (8) early. But Bairstow’s opening partner Dhawan restabilised the innings with Prabhsimran Singh. Dhawan registered 45 off 37 balls, packed with five fours and a six. Prabhsimran clattered 25 off 17 deliveries, including two fours and two sixes.

Meanwhile, Sam Curran (23), Jitesh Sharma (27) and Shashank Singh (21*) made noteworthy contributions as PBKS posted 176/6 in 20 overs. For RCB’s bowling department, Mohammed Siraj and Glenn Maxwell took two wickets each.

Speaking after PBKS’ innings, all-rounder Curran said, “It is probably slightly under par. But it (the surface) is not a belter, good finish by the boys and a few early wickets can get us back. They bowled really with the new ball and there was some help for the spinners. We are going out there with a plan and make 176 enough.”
