New Delhi: Struggling for form, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli played one of the greatest shots in cricket during their final IPL match of the season, against Delhi Daredevils.

Batting first, RCB lost opener Vishnu Vinod in the fifth over, thus bringing Kohli in the centre. The skipper started cautiously, but soon took over the contest with some sublime strokes.

Then came the shot which left everyone astounded. In the ninth over, he conjured up a magical shot to hit a six off the bowling off Corey Anderson.

That happened off the first ball of the over. A cross-seam delivery from the Kiwi all-rounder, on a length, which was played defensively on the front foot with the bat showing it's glistening face.

Result was a six, over extra-cover. Flat, and pocketed inside the Delhi dug out. Just brilliant.
