During the MI chase, Kohli could be seen signalling to the crowd to stop the boos towards Pandya and urged them to back their skipper. This gesture by 'King Kohli' went virat despite his side RCB losing the match by seven wickets to the five-time IPL champions.

When he heard the boos welcome Hardik to the crease during the 12th over of MI's run-chase, Kohli was not a happy man. He appeared to have been gesturing to the crowd that the newly-appointed skipper plays for Team India as well.
